Got Cotton?

'Tis the season to knit dishcloths... or at least it is for me! I absolutely adored the Thanksgiving Cloths patterns I purchased from KrisKnits and had also bought her Winter Wondercloths patterns. But to my shock, the knitalicious Kris has also created Christmas Cloths patterns! Oh my yarny goodness! I had to have 'em! And voila! Through the magic of television Ravelry, I purchased these yummy patterns. I plan to knit them up and give them with some homemade Peppermint Stick Salt Soak as hostess gifts. What hostess wouldn't love to soak her tired tootsies after a long day of entertaining and relax in a warm bath with some peppermint soak and exquisite handmade washcloths? So I went on a mission to find the perfect cotton for the job.

For the Winter Wondercloths, I ordered some KnitPicks CotLin in Desert Turquiose, Kohlrabi, Glacier, Swan, Nightfall, and Coffee. I liked KrisKnits' blue theme for the Winter Wondercloths so much, I decided I would do my own version.

For the Christmas Cloths, I picked up some Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton in Cumin, Drift, Honeydew, Orchid, Periwinkle, Pickle, and Tomato. And I got a hank of Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton in Sand.

In other news.. I finally got to return to knitting my Market Squares bag. Mostly, I just ate lemon squares from Mimi's (You know I love me my Mimi's!) and chatted with the lovlies at KnitOne - but I did finish the third tier of my bag. Only 12 more tiers to go! And the i-cord. Oh, and the felting. But other than that...

Celeste has finished her bag (awesome) and Karen is working some modifications to lengthen her bag (and is almost finished) - so I am way far behind. No shocker. Hubby took the kidlets with him for the weekend so I could knit my heart's content. As Karen says, "He's a keeper." So I am currently taking time to update my stash on Ravelry; sip some premium hot cocoa (sadly, I am outta Bailey's or it would be a pretty terrific evening); and curl up in front of my fireplace, in my fuzzy jammies, on my comfy couch, watching Starter Wife, and knitting my bag. Oh sweet indulgences..

Knit on!

  2. What a delightful alone time! I know you deserve it. I love the new yarn and I definitely want to see some pictures of those washcloths. What a great idea for hostess gifts! I love your new picture too! You look so happy. I hope you are. Happy Holidays!
