You knitted a what?
If I knew how to do categories in my blog, this would be filed under Odd Knitting Projects.
It's a facewasher/washcloth/flannel/whatever you call it in your neck of the woods. I saw them recently in that beautiful handmade shop I rabbited on about in a previous post and thought, well I can do that! It's knitted in Rowan cotton denim, which the label assures me will shrink and fade like real denim. I've just cranked out two of these and my fingers are blue from the dye. Rather ghoulish.
One of these washcloths is about to wing its way to Tasmania, along with a couple of balls of beautiful handmade (not by me) olive oil and poppyseed soap, to some friends who have just gone and bought a hippie house in the wilds of Tassie. An odd kind of housewarming gift you may think, and you may be right.
Note to self: do red or cream next time for easier photography.
