Here's another dishcloth for today. I've worked up several and named them after family members. This one is named for my sister Kathleen. She is 2 years older than me and I always looked up to her. We were on the drill team together in high school and had a lot of fun. She now has a set of 3 yr. old twins. I have a granddaughter the same age. Go figure. :) We still have lots of fun together. I hope you enjoy this pattern. It's lots of fun to make, and very pretty too!
