  5. Wow, Toni! I just came by to let you know how happy I am with how my picot swirl cloth turned out and you've got another one for me to do! Thank you very much. My mother loves the thickness of the cotton cloths as "doilies" under her plants at home. These are perfect!

  12. I used this pattern to make COASTERS. Used a smaller needle. During the fall I collected/bought pretty glass sets at garage sales. Sometimes you find/buy a 4 piece set for $1 or $2 and then gave them as gifts with a set of my knitted coasters. The glasses & coasters together - it was a fun project.

  14. This cloth pattern is beautiful! Homemade knitted cloths are the very best ones to have. I've been working on lace knitting patterns because I want to get good with lace. Once I'm done I will have to make some more cloths, people love getting them as gifts. Thanks for sharing!
