Swedish Dishcloth: “Robin” / “Rödhake”

Robins are these cute and friendly little guys who are keen to get a closer look when you are outdoors concentrated on doing something, practically whatever. I’ve often had one or two checking me while I’m cutting branches, digging up roots, mending a ladder or so. I thought it would be nice to have their company indoors too but birds prefer to live outside so this dish cloth was a fair solution for us both.
