Pink Flamingo Dishcloth


My name is Shama Dawson. I'm a 43 year old wife and homeschool mom of two sons, 18 and 15.  I began knitting in 2002 when I saw a free pattern for a Harry Potter scarf in a department store.  I decided that my boys needed these scarves.  I began the process of buying books and teaching myself to knit.  I've been addicted ever since.  I'm a pattern follower.  I had never designed a pattern of any kind until two years ago. 

I have loved flamingoes since I was a very young child.  I had decided I wanted to knit a flamingo dishcloth.  After I did an online search for flamingo patterns there were none to be found.  So I decided it was time to try my hand at designing!!  It wasn't as hard as I'd thought and it was very rewarding!! I sat on that design for two years before I decided to put it up on my blog.  There will be more designing in my future!!
