It’s been smooth sailing; working on the project Jambières avec une attitude. I’ve completed one leg warmer and I am making progress on its mate. I’m not a tease so I won’t flash one leg. Once the mate is off the needles, and both have been blocked; it will be ready for a photo shot and post. Please stay tuned.
Meanwhile, I’m ready to throw in the towel; a dishtowel, to be precise. While staring into my yarn stash for inspiration; for a gift for my sister-in-law, Eunice, two skeins of “kitchen” cotton caught my eye. Each skein of yarn is a solid brightly colored hue. They were bought on separate occasions; for projects that remain unexplored and truthfully, completely, forgotten. Together the yarns make a bold combination. I thought it would be nice to transform an item associated with drudgery, into something vibrant and cheerful.
I have started on the dishtowel. To create a kitchen gift set, I will use the yarn leftover from the towel to make a dishcloth/scrubby. To top it off I’ll add some ultra-rich hand cream (Any hand cream recommendations blogosphere?).
I’m calling this project – The Domestic Goddess Gift Set (thank you Rosanne Barr).
