Tying Up Loose Ends

4 Comments

Today on the train I managed to finish off 3 more dishcloths.  They were knitted but just needed the threads to be woven in and neatened up.

These are some that I made to use up the last of the coloured thread.  I had 2 balls of the neutral thread stashed away so it is good to get it used up.

I am knitting 1 more cloth and that should just about finish all of the scraps so I will then have 9 dishcloths which should last me quite a while.  Not bad for the $10 spent of 4 balls of coloured thread.  Many thanks to my friend, Sandra who found the special and even bought them for me.

My next project is to use the same pattern to knit a facewasher each for Miss O and Izz for part of their Christmas gifts.  I plan to buy a ball each of pink and purple cotton and will make 1 pink and 1 purple one with their intitials knitted into it in the contrasting colour.

Speaking of Christmas gifts – it is 7 months till Christmas.  I have been a bit slack about posting my progress of Christmas preparations for Lazy Brownie day each month but I will get back on track for June.

How soon do you start planning for Christmas?

  1. I don’t start formally planning for Christmas until October, but I do keep it in the back of my mind all year round. It may take me half a year before I see something or think of something that could work for a particular person. We tend to give a lot of local wines/beers which often come in one-time “nano brews” around here, so I pick those up as I see interesting ones and hang on to them until the holidays.

    Those are lovely dishcloths, btw. Are you planning to put any of them up in your shop?

  2. I love the idea of local beers/wines as gifts – it supports local producers and is consumable so no ‘stuff’ for the recipient to store.

    The shop has been on the backburner for a while but I will get back to it and perhaps a pack of 3 dishcloths might be an option.
