A delightful combination

What could be better than having an inspirational book arrive in the office at the same time as a sampling of new yarn?

A Knitter’s Home Companion by Michelle Edwards is an absorbing combination of stories, patterns and recipes. Her trio of washcloths just begged to be knit with our new Dishie cotton yarn.

I grabbed a selection of colors that I found particularly appealing and started knitting. And, knitting. And, knitting. I had forgotten how much fun it was to whip out a collection washcloths.

I would have had more to show you but several were given away. It turns out that I can knit up a washcloth during an evening out with friends. Each time, a friend admired the finished cloth so much that I made a gift of it.

Something to think about when you are planning holiday gifts. A washcloth gathered around a fragrant bar of artisan soap.
