Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
I am prone to over-buying wool (and I think my partner in craft would also confess to being somewhat of a impulse craft buyer); in short, we’re both guilty of over-buying when it comes to craft supplies.
What tends to happen is the supplies increase but you struggle to use/store them in your space-shy London flat (I have a craft supplies storage issue). There are staples I use on a regular basis to make gifts and to sell on, but the materials that fall outside this tend to stay beautiful and mint (and in storage). This is true of some lovely cotton/merino blend wool I bought in the sale at Tangled Yarn about 2 years ago.
I follow the wonderful Georgina Giles blog and recently spotted this post by her on knitted face cloths and I was inspired to finally use the above mentioned neglected wool for this pattern.
Here are the results:
I really love this pattern – it’s simple to achieve, the end result is pleasing and the cloths would make lovely presents. It’s also a good one to take on holiday (I knitted these in Paris and Chicago!) as you only need one ball of wool and you can finish a whole project while away.
