WIP and a Few FOs
Well, I FINALLY got something to take a pix of and share. LOL. UNFORTUNATELY the computer and I are having a "failure to communicate" and even though I resized the pix (and also tried to insert from URL) they are not going in. Sorry, but if you really want to see some of what I've been up to, you'll have to click on the links below until such time as I can make this work. Urg.

First is My So-Called Scarf that I'm knitting for my mom for Christmas.

The Flower Power Washcloth was my first endeavor knitting on two circs. URG... took me a bit to get that down (of course, considering I was sitting in front of the computer watching Amy's video and trying to learn it at 2am cause I needed it for a gift the next day probably didn't help, but.... FINISHED it. YAY!) This was for a garden theme holiday gift swap. The soap that went with it was handmade soap with Rose and Thyme scent added along with dried rose petals and dried thyme both from my garden. Only problem with the wash cloth was that the recipient wanted to frame it rather than USE it. LOL. God bless her for thinking it was so pretty, but USE IT! LOL.

Other pix are of some other washcloths I have knit thus far for holiday gifts that will be paired with more homemade soap.

Oh...and I'm heajames on Ravelry

Great job. What yarn are you using for the scarf? It's beautiful.

I agree the scarf is beautiful, and usually I don't like sparkly, variegated yarns.

Awesome wash clothes and soap, lucky receivers they are

Great job! I love the yarn you're using for the scarf too - beautiful! And your washcloths are so pretty! It's funny, I've decided to research making soap to go with washcloths for gifts next year ... any suggestions as to sites that are very helpful?

Your scarf is beautiful! Love the yarn -- what is it?? Your flower power washcloth is really cute -- I'm glad it was appreciated. That's a great gift idea to pair the washcloths with soaps. I'm sure they'll be appreciated.
