This is actually my first FO besides the practice scarf I used to learn to knit! :woohoo:
Of course I wanted to make something for my Mom! :muah: She is actually pretty hard to gift, but I think she will like these 2 little dish/ face cloths. I ordered some soaps to go with them from Lather (they have a storefront nearby in Pasadena but they are relocating down the street and are closed). Anyway, they make really nice "handmade" type soaps that smell soooo good. I picked lemongrass, passion flower, rose/lavender/tangerine, and rosemary peppermint based on memory. I am going to send 2 of them along with the cloths and keep 2 for the next little gift basket I make, maybe for my grandma...
So the cloths are made with Sugar & Cream. The blue one is in garter stitch and the cream/ multi one is in seed stitch. I far prefer the seed stitch. I couldn't get the outer stitching to look any more professional than that. I guess it is a "personal touch" then... :teehee:
I was a little disappointed that when I washed them (in cold) the pink from the variegated yarn bled a lot. Mostly on one side of the cloth. :?? Oh well. Another personal touch. :rofl:
