All My Love Dishcloth

Whew, what a January!  Between all the craziness of my normal routine, I'm so excited to have started a new job this past month.    While I'm very happy with my decision to leave my past job, my knitting and designing time has been drastically cut (I had the amazing flexibility to knit and design when I wasn't busy which was a big chunk of my day!).  I'm really trying to knit as fast as I can after bedtime and on the weekends.  There are so many designs I came up with that I have's just a matter of sitting down to write the directions and knit them up.

As you all know by now, I love holidays and Valentine's Day is no exception.  Here's the first of two Valentine themed dishcloths.  I hope you enjoy it!  =)
