Face Cloths.

Have you got any great patterns for Christmas presents? Quick Mother's Day gifts or birthday treats? Or are you looking for inspiration?

I knitted my aunt a face cloth with cotton from the pound shop - but she thought it was too nice to use and keeps it with a fancy bar of soap on top in her bathroom :smile:
They are great for last minute gifts.

I'm using them to make blanket squares at the moment; I'm using aran so they're coming out at about 25cm square which is making the blanket grow quickly! It's for my husband so I've been picking patterns that mean something - a bit like a Pandora bracelet in a blanket! :lol:

Specially when this kind of quick projects seem like so much fun to make :knit:

I know excactly what you mean, Guzzi.


My BIL and SIL came to stay with us for 8 days and really like our knitting dishcloths. I had a spare ball of cotton and gave it to my SIL to take back with her, as she was looking forward for knit some for herself .

A few years back, we had a dishcloth swap. We just sent one dishcloth and a small present. I received a lovely blue one from Purplegem and a posh soap. I always think of her when I use her cloth :smile:

I remember that swap! I got some lovely cloths from Joy along with some other treats. I'd definitely like to get involved in a swap again when I have more time!

I totally agree with that, I do wish you wouldn't talk of things like this, I'm supposed to be on cold sheep, and I've got so many other things to knit as well, but its sooo tempting to knit something bright after all the black I've been knitting lately :lol:
