Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease, I’d like to share this special knitting pattern with you. I first introduced the Joyfully Twirling Dress Dishcloth pattern in 2014 shortly after my good friend passed away. She was a remarkable woman who lived with breast cancer for more than 20 years. We worked together and every week she went to her chemo session after work and was back in the office the next day. She was an incredible role model who lived her life as if she was free of discomfort. I don’t know how she did that but I do know that she was often feeling less than terrific.
Joyfully Twirling is the dress dishcloth that I designed in her memory. The knitting pattern is not for sale although, I’m happy to share it with any knitter who would like a copy. All I ask is that you make a donation to the breast cancer organization of your choice. A quick search led me to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Charities of America websites where I discovered lots of helpful information and their mission statements.
Once you’ve made your donation, leave me a comment or email me and let me know which organization received your donation. I will email you the digital version of the Joyfully Twirling Dress Dishcloth pattern.
Remember, the dress dishcloths also make lovely washcloths. The one pictured here is on a container of Dove Body Wash.
Once you have the pattern, feel free to use the finished dress dishcloths at your craft fairs and fund raising events.
My hope is that this fancy little cloth will bring a smile and a bit of comfort to all who knit or receive one.
