Knitting My Fingers to the Bone...

... in preparation for a Baby Shower this weekend for my StepBrother and Sister-in-Law.

Over the holidays, I was given a hand-knitted dishcloth by a fellow knitting friend on Twitter and I LOVE it. It's super absorbent, makes a great pot holder and is oh-so-pretty.

So I decided to make some washcloths to go in a layette basket for my new nephews.



Cute. Right?



And some bibs too ...



I think I may be addicted because they are so quick to knit and I am an instant-gratification-kinda-gal. I predict gifts of washcloths and dishcloths for EVERYONE!

Yes, too cute!

How long did one take for you to finish??

Each item took me about a day to complete. I started knitting the first washcloth a little over a week ago.

I am impressed. I don't know why, but I have a block on wash rags. I moaned and groaned the whole time I was making the bunch for mom. You have done a great job on those and supah fast at them! They are going to make a great gift!

I started crocheting amigurumi for nieces and nephews. It is addictive.
