It's All About the Bath!
I had a great time making and assembling these hostess gifts. I used the ball band dishcloth pattern and the burpcloth pattern.
I am working on Absorba with some modifications. I am using three strands of WW P&C on 11 1/2 needles. I did not want the mat to be too absorbent for fear of it never drying out in our humid climate! It is still plenty cushy!
On the tailgate bath mat I substituted Debbie Bliss cotton denim aran foor the rag ball. I am not thrilled with the seaming but it is a very comfy mat. I am going to try it again with some toile strips that I made. Pics later. Happy Knitting and thanks for sharing all of your lovely work!
And your bathmat is very pretty too.
