Knitting and Stitching

Apologies for the recent silence! I've been swamped for the last couple of weeks with birthdays, competitions, and work.  This has left very little time to even step foot in my craft room and get any meaningful sewing done.  I have been working on some other little projects though.

My friend recently celebrated her birthday so we drove to Southern California to visit and make a quick trip to Disneyland.  She's a teacher and I've had this little knitting project on the books for her for a while, I could just never get myself to finish it.  I wanted to make her some teacher washcloths.  I had originally planned for four, but in the end only managed to make three in time.  The problem? I made the first two, no problem, but then I took a little break before making the last one.  Well, apparently I duplicated my efforts... and made the same design twice.  So she received one school bus and two ABC's.  Oops.  It's the thought that counts, right?

The blue and green are ABC, the yellow is the school bus.  It's a little hard to see, but if you tilt your head sideways, it should become clearer.
I don't know if you've ever used knit washcloths, but they're suprisingly great.  I admit when I first received one, I had no idea what to do with it. I use this to wash my face? No, they're great for everything! In particular, I like to use them for doing dishes.  When you're done with it, just throw it in the washing machine for the next time you want to use it.  And the best part, is that if you have a washcloth with a design, the design become more prominent the more you use it and wash it.

In addition to the washcloths, I have been making my mother-in-law a housewarming gift/mother's day present for her new home.  Here's a sneak peek of the design so far:

More on this project later in the week.
