The Yahoo Group KnittingParents that I'm on did a winter gift exchange. We were to make our giftee something out of a skein of yarn and send it to them. Look at the goodies I received!!!
There's a great card, mintey bath/shower gel, dark chocolate (YUM) and a gorgeous cloth AND hand made soap and bag. I am so spoiled! I am marking off Saturday morning to get re-aquainted with my bath tub and making the men in my life all leave the house so I can have an hour of peace!
Thank you so much Elizabeth!The pictures do not do show how wonderful the fabric and color is - part of me wants to save it and just admire it but I know the real beauty of knitted items is when they are loved and USED!

This is pair #5 of the pattern "Little Green Wristlets" from the book 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders edited by Judith Durant. I really like the pattern. My alterations were to not make the thumb on the first 4 pairs (pictures to follow from my nieces - I hope) and to only do two pattern repeats at the wrist.
