Sad News and Patterns

As many of you have probably heard, Pisgah Yarn and Dyeing Company is going out of business as of February 25, 2011.

If you want any of the free patterns on the site, you might consider getting them now. I have not heard what will happen to them after that date.

Also be advised that the purple cloth on the top of this page can be found on the Pisgah site at this location : Ballband Cloth . That  is where I got it.

It can also be found in a popular knitting book,: Mason Dixon Knitting by Kay Gardiner and Anne Shayne.

Header and Hearts

Since starting this site, there have been questions about what patterns are used in the cloths on the header. The one on the left is Grandma’s Favorite and can be found here or here.

The pattern on the right is called the Ballband Dishcloth. It is named this because it was originally found on the wrapper, or ball band of Peaches & Creme cotton yarn.

You can find the pattern in a couple of different places. The first link below is to the original pattern.

It can also be found in the Mason Dixon Knitting Book  by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne.

There are variations of both patterns. The links to some of these can be foundon other pages of this site:

More links are being added to the page: Heart Cloths today as well as to other pages.

Have a great day!
