I'm back at work this week and we're getting busy again, so I only have time for a quick post.
Here are a couple of finished projects, completed in the last week or two.
Two more knitted dishcloths. Made using Sirdar Just Bamboo. The front one is made using the Pear dishcloth pattern found here. The other one is another Grandmother’s Favorite dishcloth. The latter is made from two different colours of yarn because I ran out halfway through and the LYS didn’t have any of the same colour left when I went back. For future reference, one skein of the Just Bamboo made 2 ½ dishcloths so it pays to buy more than one skein! Apologies for the skewed shape of the Pear one. I didn’t block it and took the photo quickly because I wanted to start using it straight away.
This is another leafy tote, almost identical to one I made for a Christmas gift, except the newer tote has an internal pocket and shorter straps. The main body of the bag is black cotton drill with an accent of Japanese craft cotton. It is lined in a natural coloured homespun. The straps have a contrast lining of the leaf fabric. This one is a birthday gift for my sister-in-law to be (my brother-in-law proposed on Christmas Day!) who lives in Melbourne. They are getting married in November in Melbourne – I am already making a list of craft stores and markets to visit while I’m there!
