Dishcloth Bouquet


I decided to find a use for my teapot flower pot - it loves holding my completed dishcloths!

Knitting was good on the weekend. I finished two more dishcloths and did a bit of work on a table runner that I am knitting for my in law's and then I got my throw that I'm making for DH and myself out of the plastic storage bin(keeping it moth free) and began working on it again. I got about half way before it was just getting too hot to knit a wool blanket and it got tucked away. This morning I started my day with morning knitting. I'm trying to make this a regular thing. I plan on actually setting the alarm clock for a half hour earlier to accommodate it. I find life is much easier to deal with if I've had that quiet time. It's really peaceful, a wonderful way to start the day. Today I was working on our throw and I'm really liking how it's turning out. I've never had a hand knit wool blanket before. I don't know how practical it will be to have one but it looks nice and it will be nice and warm. I'm only going to bring it out when the pooch is in bed for the night - I don't want it getting snagged or full of pet hair.

  1. Congrats on all the finished dishcloths. They look very cute in the teapot.

    I like to start my day with a bit of knitting too.

  2. Nice display idea. I am such a night owl that morning is my time to wake up and make it out the door. At least I now eat breakfast and make a lunch. I like your idea of knitting.
