Dishcloths must be made with cotton- washcloths with cotton or I've even seen a flower one done with chenile. Peaches and Cream runs about 1.29 a ball at Wally World, Sugar & Cream runs around 1.50 a ball at Micheals or you can buy the larger balls at Joanns for 1.99. You can also by all cotton at your local yarn store. Debbie Bliss, and Jaeger "Aqua" are also spiffy cotton yarns that come in a wide range of colors if you want to go that route.( My LYS just ran a 40% off clearance on theirs so I stocked up! Whoo hoo! lol
One note: variated yarns do not tend to show pattern designs too well. Please keep that in mind when choosing your yarn.
All cloths need to have some sort of pattern-whatever you choose. Please do not do plain garter stitch. This swap is a perfect way for practicing new stitch patterns. Get as crazy as you'd like!

...When you have mailed PLEASE be sure to send me your Delivery Confirmation number. I will be noting communication in feedback- so please communicate with me if something arises and you will not be abe to mail out on time. This should be a quick swap and everyone should have plenty of time to get them in the mail on the mail out date I hope .
Please post pictures in a timely manner so that everyone may admire all the cool designs I'm sure you'll all make!
Also it is a requirement for this swap that you contact your partner & myself upon receiving.
