It has become a tradition... to go to the autumn craft festival, which is held at the Brainerd (Minnesota) Senior High School in October (and again in November for Christmas items), to stock up on handmade knit dishcloths. Today was the day.
I choose to purchase dishcloths from the same woman, whose booth is set up in the same location each year, for $2.50 each or 5 for $10.00 even though I discovered she was undercut by a competitor this year who is selling hers for $1.50 apiece. It a loyalty thing. Truly, at either price it's a labor of love. I chose two autumn colored ones and three that are stitched in brighter, summery colors to celebrate the amazingly perfect, warm, sunny October days we have been blessed with all week. If you've never washed dishes with a knit dishcloth, you absolutely must. It's like a combination dishcloth and scrub pad. I use nothing else.
