#27 - QUICK KNIT, QUICK POST

From Knitting, etc.

In-between schooling and working and being my general disorganized self, I quickly knitted up this fun, retro cotton hanging dish towel for one of my secret swappers. The colors aren't typical of me, but she loves anything bright and this is a perfect way to use up some stash yarn. I have some ideas for a few variations to start working up in some more muted tones to match my kitchen, but I love this one because it's so fun and colorful. What types of handmade goodies do you like to make for gifts?

I love this dishcloth! I've made some as gifts. I don't do too many gift items - I'm a selfish knitter! I made a shawl for my Mom, hats, dishcloths, that's about it.

Really funky - love the colours.

Most of my gifted items so far a small ones - scarves, fingerless mittens, hats, cowls, baby items.

I am trying to get some larger projects started for myself before I start giving them to others... little selfish I know ;-)

I love bright colors in the kitchen. They make the place cheerful and homy, all at the same time.
