Not content to make my slew of Everlasting Bagstoppers (I’m about halfway through the second one), and also admitting that I wouldn’t finish enough of them for all the people I want to gift at work, I decided to use some of my stashed handmade washcloths to fill in the gaps. I had two washcloths and just cast on for a third. I’m using the Mason-Dixon Washcloth pattern that I made over the summer, and using up some of my assorted Peaches & Creme cotton. I think this will be it for me for washcloths–they really don’t excite me. But I bought some cute wicker baskets at a local drugstore and will add some bath gel to each basket with the washcloth–I think it makes for a cute gift, don’t you?
The bags will have to be for after holiday gifts..and maybe even for me.
Finally, I cast on for my son’s University of Michigan color socks, using the Priscilla’s Dream Socks pattern from Favorite Socks. I got them started through one color change and will now put them away for our holiday vacation–the washcloth and Bagstopper, as well as my husband’s scarf (about 2/3 of the way done!!) all need to be done first.
