Simple Gift Giving

Hand made gifts are so special. I love spending the time to make something for someone, thinking of them the entire time I work on the project. I don't always allow myself time to make something very detailed so I look for easy projects that are still special. A special knitted wash cloth is the perfect last minute gift especially when handmade soap and some chocolates are included. I included some lotion and a soap dish to complete the gift.

The Reverse Bloom Knitted Washcloth, published in Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick, is quick knitting but looks so special. The are a lot of wash cloth patterns available or sometimes I just start knitting making up the pattern as I go.  A kitchen cloth paired with an embellished towel would be a great hostess gift.  I used a worsted weight cotton to knit this simple gift. I need to make some more of these simple wash cloths to add to the gift stash for those last minute gifts.
