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!
