This season seems all about the small project for Subway Knitter. I forgot, however, that Knitting Grandma is the queen of the small project.
Here is one of the things that KG gifted to me on Christmas:
What struck me about this was how pleased I was with this. Look at those swirly pastels! Those are going to make me happy when I see them in the shower. Actually, Knitting Grandma often gives me these hand-knit washcloths and I love 'em. The cotton yarn feels nice on my skin, I think that they work better than the terry-cloth versions, and they're very colorful.
It's a gift idea which often slips my mind. Imagine a swatch of Peaches n' Cream knit in a pretty stitch pattern. Wrap it around a bar of frou-frou soap, tie it with a coordinating ribbon, and you have a fantastic gift.
Martha could not do any better.
