Charlie Brown

My friend Ali had to say goodbye suddenly to a cherised family pet just before Christmas - Charlie Brown. A beautiful Chocolate Burmese.

At the same time, I was going to make her a dishcloth for a dishcloth swap I was taking part in. Now, me being a geek, I already had a dishcloth all knit and ready to be rehomed but when I heard I thought maybe I'd put together a few other items

So, my 'Latte' dishcloth was knit - this is made from 70% bamboo and 30% cotton - soooo soft using this pattern.

I also included 150gms of yarn I had hand-dyed in what I hope are chocolate burmese colours. I called the colourway 'Charlie Brown'

I originally intended to also knit one of these...but in the end ran out of steam so was going to include the pattern (which I also remembered I'd left out on my way to give it to Ali)


  1. That is a beautiful gift Julia. Love the colours and I don't usually like brown's.

  2. Aw thats lovely Julia, I am sure she will love it!

  3. That was one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever seen hun!

  4. That is really lovely Julia, I even love how your dog looks bummed out in the background :)
