How long to knit one Ball Band Warshrag?
WHAT WASHCLOTHES???? Apparently in a fit of pre-wedding generosity I had offered to knit washclothes to go with the personal spa gift sets my daughter has put together for the bridesmaids. I think I had some sort of elegant, lacy items in Euroflax in mind. Of course, I promptly forgot all about it.
So here is my question: Can I, in the next week, knock out 3 ball-bands? I knit at a moderate speed. Oh - I am also making the wedding cake. I will have 5 hours of knitting time on the airplane, and will be able to grab other moments in the following week. And I could knit at night...
Or should I tell her to go to Walmart and buy 3 of those net thingies??
You can make them a little smaller, too, if they are wash cloths instead of dish rags.
Also, I rather like the smaller size better - especially if they are meant as part of a spa gift and not for doing dishes.
lisab, email me if you are still willing to help out! firstname.lastname@example.org
I like the idea of the spa colors, and making them a little smaller. But... asking my daughter to knit one? NOT. I think she's got too much going on. However, I could enlist my mother in a pinch.
I also think the idea of having the net thingies to keep away the bad luck is an excellent idea. I used to do that when I first learned to make homemade pie crust. I always kept frozen pie crust around, just in case.
