I needed 100% wool to make the soap sweaters, and I could not find any in town and most of my own stash was an acrylic blend.
Won't these make lovely soap sweaters? Lincraft brand, however all 100% wool.
My next knitting venture is to make some dishcloths. My niece, Donna, had made some for my mother as a gift, and after using one, I was hooked. So she kindly sent me the pattern, and I will be trying them in the next few days.
These are the cottons I purchased. The ones in the front are 100% cotton, but two in the back, on the left hand side are a blend of bamboo and cotton. I think they will be suitable. I love the feel and texture of them, nice and silky. Worth a try.
It is always an expensive venture when we travel out of town, as our small town only has one fabric shop and no craft shop. So when the opportunity arises I always stock up. Griffith is approx 65 kilometres away, but our nearest Spotlight is 120 kilometres away, so as you can imagine sometimes it is a case of using what is available. This is why I have begun to stock general craft supplies on my website, it is always available (for me)!
Stay tuned to see the finished dishcloths
