No Place Like Home Knit Dishcloth Pattern

I'm channeling my inner Judy Garland for Week 18 of 52 Weeks of Dishcloths. This beauty closes out our month of dishcloths courtesy of Lion Brand Yarn. I love working with this family-owned and operated company. They're so awesome, in fact, that you might want to come back Monday for a special surprise. (Hint, hint!)

This picture makes it look almost as ruby as Dorothy's slippers, but it's actually a lovely coral Kitchen Cotton in Cayenne.
