Yarn Along

The official Yarn Along has ended.
But at it's conclusion, I thought I would, on occasion, 
post an update on what I am knitting.
I am still knitting wash cloths for Christmas gift giving.

Pictured is the set I am working on now.
The light green washcloth is finished, I just started it's mate, the dark green one.

Each gift will include two wash cloths and one special bar of soap.

I was going to felt this soap but it's wrapped so pretty,
that I decided to leave it as is.
I do have some soap that I will be felting, I will share that process with you all.

These wash cloths are super fun and easy to knit...
and I love how they look and feel when they are finished.
I am using Luna Cascade Yarns
Peruvian Cotton

Hello, the wash clothes and soap are a lovely gift. Very pretty. Enjoy your Thursday!

I love the colors for your wash cloths. I am looking forward to seeing your instructions for felting. I started out crocheting, but when I started the knitting the coolest thing was wash cloths that were square. My crocheting (and unfortunately my knitting) leaves a lot to be desired!

I love the color for sure...very pretty. I love homemade soaps. I have a friend here at home that sales them in some local stores. The last I got I bought from a cousin that makes hers out of goats milk. I am using Rosemary right now and I love that smell. Great job on the wash clothes.

Love the colors you used!!
