Whilst waiting for the armoire sealer to dry I decided to amuse myself by doing a bit of knitting. I love knitting although I rarely ever achieve making anything, the process of knitting is what I enjoy the most.
Here is a picture of my wool box and it was full of odd colourful single balls of wool which was really not helpful so I decided I would have a go at making something colourful in the boho romantic style that I so love at the moment.
See the pic’s below for examples of Boho Romantic style, it’s a little shabby chic, a little kitsch, a lot cute and a little pinch of mixed up madness.
Boho Romantic test – knitting a pillow
how hard could it be? I want colour, blends, and a sprinkle of exotic. This was my giving it a go.
and here it is!!
Right now my room is a little bland. This pillow is the start of something big – I can feel it!!!
hand-knitted luxurious cotton face cloths.
Our face cloths were looking a little ratty so I thought I would have a go at knitting some replacements and I had odd balls of cotton thread that I had picked up at the thrift store, hardware store (tying up tomato plants to stakes cotton) and emporiums over the years. I collected every ball of cotton I could find and knitted 3 face cloths from them, at 40 stiches across on size 5.0 bamboo needles. They are so super soft and perfect for the ECO soaps we get. I think I need more but I’ve run out of cotton………….
