Towels with Buttons

I'm finished!  All of it is done: the knitting, the crocheting and all the finishing!
Kitchen Towels

Just lovin' the pretty kitchen towels with their buttons sewn on (I gotta make some for my own kitchen once I figure out which colours I'd like to use).  In my quest for free patterns, I did find a few others that I printed off, but never used.  More items to add to my Ravelry queue.

The place mats turned out lovely too (if I do say so--heck, I'm allowed to brag a little).  I really like the border.  And I'm glad I changed the striping.  This pattern was very easy to modify to one's own taste: add or remove stripes and colours to your own taste.
Four Finished Place Mats

And of course, I added a few extra dishcloths--very simple, easy pattern.  Again, this would be easy enough to modify too.

I've got three dishcloths in total, plus the coordinating dish soap apron.  And dear hubby picked up a cute basket too.
Items in Gift Basket

Funny story: dear hubby explained to gift store owner about needing a basket to hold place mats I had made.  Store owner wondered if I'd be interested in making some place mats for him to sell in the store.  Very flattering, but I think not--at least not right now.  With pending toy requests from the boys and Bernat blog projects on the go, there's a lot on my plate.  Besides, crafting is for fun and I'm not sure if I'd enjoy it as much if it was work.  Something to consider for the future perhaps.

Have a great weekend :D


  1. Wow, and that offer was made sight unseen -- but I'm with you, knitting is fun and besides who could really pay you what your time is worth -- $100.00 placemat anyone?

  2. That's exactly what I was thinking Wool-Free: how much would I charge and who'd want to dish $100 for placemats?

    If I ever want to go that route, I'd probably set up a table at the local Farmer's Market. But it would be a f/t job--and I already have one of those, LOL.
