Let's connect!


I have a fabulous review & giveaway for you today lovelies! I recently was able to check out Bath Knits by Mary Beth Temple (ISBN: 978-0-8117-1657-4, Stackpole).

Bath Knits is full of projects to bring the spa right to your home with luxurious items like things to wear like robes, washcloths, and even beautiful pedicure socks!

The book is photographed in full color and many of the projects have a detailed chart to guide you along as well. There is a helpful abbreviation section in the back too!

Check out this Pink Lace Bathmat, such a pretty stitch:

I really love this project too...if you need a quick gift and are pressed for time, these cable trimmed towels are just perfect. Many of the projects in the book are perfect for a hostess, shower gift, or a housewarming. I love the way the author uses variegated yarns in many of the projects.
