A $10.00 Gift

                                 This weekend is our annual family reunion.
                                           We always play games and one of them
                                                          is called  Steal It.........

                                          We bring a wrapped $10.00 gift for any gender
                                                                family oriented.

                                                   I want to share with you my gift.

                                                   Something everyone can use.

                                                   A knitted organic face cloth 8" x 8"

                                  The face cloth I knitted and sale for $5.00 and
                                                 the organic soap I purchased for

                                                The organic soap is scented with essential
                                                                         Rosemary Mint.

                                                                     I wrapped the soap in
                                                     some scrap book paper and used bakers twine
                                                                            to tie it.


                                                              Can you see the tag on the back?

                                                       Wanted the winner of my gift to know
                                                                  about the soap.

                                                I rolled the facecloth and tied it with bakers
                                                                twine as well.

                                                       Now to add the finishing touches.


Wrapped in tissue paper with a tie do 
you think anyone will guess what this is??

I thought I would add this pattern for the facecloth in case  anyone
was interested in knitting one for themselves.

I used US #6 needles
cast on 4 stitches
row 1 knit 4
row 2   knit 2 yo knit accross

Repeat row 2  to 44 stitches on the needle.

Row 3  knit 1, knit 2 tog, yo, knit 2 tog , knit to end.

Repeat row 3 till there are 4 stitches remaining.
bind off.

Thanks for stopping by!
Love hearing from you, please leave a message!

  1. That is a lovely gift and I know I would appreciate it. I love that pattern, and I'm making some cotton dishcloths right now using the same pattern. I call it the no brainer pattern and I can work on it, put it down, work on it later and still watch tv or carry on a conversation.

  2. I love those crocheted wash cloths...so soft and lovely...
    I have no idea how to dry sunflowers...
    Your bouquet in previous post is fabulous!
    Enjoy your evening...
    Thanks for your lovely comments...much appreciated!
    Linda :o)
