From 2007 to 2015, Janet Nogle — tireless knitter and lover of all things dishcloths — brought together knitting bloggers and designers from across the internet to create calendars of dishcloths and home-related knitting patterns. Janet would tirelessly print and bind each calendar at home and mail them with homemade stitch markers.

Many of you may remember Janet from the early days of the Monthly Dishcloth KAL Yahoo Group. She also established two Facebook groups: the Monthly Dishcloth group and the Knitting Swatches group. Tens of thousands of knitters have enjoyed Janet’s patterns over the years.

Janet had her health struggles, but she was always upbeat and positive. In the past year, her health began to decline and in April 2022, our beloved friend Janet passed away.

To honor Janet, we’ve decided to offer her calendars for sale again as digital downloads. Proceeds from the sales will be given to her daughters for them to use as they see fit in her memory. They have approved of this sale and are honored by it.

We need your help!

Janet and crew began publishing the Dishcloth Hangups Calendar in 2007, but we do not have the digital files for 2007 or 2008. If you have one of them, we’d love to hear from you! It would be wonderful if we could offer the complete set to remember and honor our Janet.
