Late Nites...

I have two young children (6 and 8), my teenager (16), and my oldest (23)...and my love, my husband! I have a busy home during the day and evenings! I can work somewhat during the day, but I thrive when everyone's asleep and not pulling me in 10,000 directions.

So, I've been staying up late nights and knitting washcloths for my family.

I needed to take a break from sewing...but, I still need to create! And, it's so quiet and peaceful!

I pulled out every color of 100% cotton fibers and started knitting. I believe I was able to give everyone their own favorite color!

I like the periwinkle and yellow; my husband wants solid dusty blue; my son likes the two tone dusty blue/sea green; my oldest daughter picked solid sea green; and the two youngest girls like pink; so, pink and burgundy for the baby girl and solid pink for the teenager.

Everyone loves the feel of the washcloths!

I will be making more for Christmas and upcoming birthdays for friends and family.

I guess I'll go to sleep now, it's after 3 a.m. Have to go grocery shopping in the morning...or, later this morning!

Have a Safe and Happy Fourth of July Weekend!

Hi, I have been lurking on your blog for a wee while, but had to comment today.
I am the same about sitting and crafting in the small hours, and it's only me and Mr T here now! I love the washcloths - when I made one for a friend, she said it was so soft she's using it as a facecloth!

Thank you tea and cake; and stephanie for your nice comments! @tea and cake: I am so 'stuck' on these washcloths and dishcloths. I think A LOT of people will be getting these this holiday season. ;D

I love these washcloths. I knitted my first ever dishcloth a while back but it's still on the shelf because I don't want to use it for the dishes - now I can use it for my face. Thanks! x
