#42 Reversible Five-Sided Crochet Dishcloth

Today I received word that the Guinness Record Application was sent on for review. It said: Dear Mrs Maggie Weldon,

We are glad to inform you that your record application has been transferred to our internal system.

I guess this is good. They didn’t throw it out. They also sent me more information on the whole process which I have not read yet. I am cautiously optimistic.

This dishcloth was designed and submitted by Carol Ballard.  It looked beautiful on both sides!  To see more of Carol’s designs visit MaggiesCrochet.com or Carol’s Blog:
