Yesterday evening, I finally made the washcloth ready for departure. I rolled it up with a white soap bar, wrote a care label (and a few words to the receiver on the back side) and then tied it all together:
I hope she’ll like the colour I selected, and the simple pattern (Nina’s seed stich surprise). The thing with the black is -I have absolutely no idea which colour my secret pal’s bathroom is; white would have been quite safe but… I just hate it when I wash in the evening and my mascara stains a newly washed facecloth, no matter how thoroughly I’ve tried to wash it off using only water and my hands first (or some fancy make-up-remover-stuff). Aren’t you familiar with this problem? 😉 Hence, I’ve often thought it would be a brilliant idea to use dark facecloths. And I’m also just quite fond of plain black and white. There you have it.
And here I present a blurred and foggy photo of the wristwarmers Sæunn got on her graduation day
This is a Rowan pattern from Magazine nr. 38 (2005). I used double Rowan Kid Classic and 7mm needles. And I’m actually very pleased with the result:-) At the moment, I’m working on the second sleeve of the cream and green baby jacket (see two posts down). Moving slowly…
I made a little trip to the Álafoss factory last Friday to buy some wool (Kambgarn) for a striped blanket. I stood a while wondering which colours to chose, but ended up with these
I wanted several colours, and a colour scale or a gradient of similar colours. I haven’t quite made up my mind wether I’ll use all the colours. Better make some samples before I start. Whenever that will be:-o Actually, I should finish some of the other things I’ve already started first. First things first.
