Just finished up my third Absorba. I think I like this one best of the three -- the edges came out the most even, and I feel like I've really gotten the design down pat. I've pretty much decided on bath sets -- mat, hand towels and washcloths -- for Christmas gifts. Now I just need to figure out which design to use for the sets. If I use Absorba for the mat, I'll have to make the towels and washcloths in log cabin. On the other hand, I could make ballband washcloths and towels and then try to adapt that design to a bathmat...maybe using 3 or 4 strands at a time like with an Absorba. Has anyone on the list tried making a ballband bath mat? If so, how did you like it?
BTW, many thanks to whoever it was who mentioned the $1 sale on SnC at Michael's. I stopped by there today and the sale sign was nearly hidden -- I would have missed it for sure if I hadn't been looking for it. You can see how carried away I got; I think I brought home nearly every color they had! Looks like I'll be making LOTS of Christmas presents! :)http://splindarella05.blogspot.com/
