What's Wrong With Me????

Thanks for all of the great feed back on the drawstring bag. I'll try and get the tutorial done and posted by sometime next week so stay tuned.... :)
I can't believe that this knitting/crochet bug is still going... There really must be something wrong with me at the moment... LOL!!! I usually get bored and move on after 1 or 2 projects but now I'm up to project number 5 with another 2 already in progress and due to be finished tonight, can you believe it??? Well I can't!!!!!
Here's some pics of the face washers I made for a friend who's b'day is this week. This one is knitted using a gorgeous cotton/acrylic yarn by Patons and this pattern.....
And this one is crochet using 100% cotton yarn by Sullivan's (the same stuff I used for the nappy cover) and this pattern. Even though both yarns were the same ply (thickness) this crochet cloth feels SO much chunkier....
I'm going to try and make some homemade soap to go with these cloths, only if I get the chance, and I have the fabric all cut out and ready to be sewn for a drawstring bag (same as the one in the last post) to put it all in.

  1. Oh, these look great Jodie!! Well done. Perhaps it's the nesting instinct coming through that is making you keep going???

  2. They are lovely Jodie and I think such a personal gift for someone. I love the idea of putting it all in the draw string bag!

  4. Lovely work - there is nothing wrong with the knitting/crocheting bug - that is all that I seem to do at the moment too, but you seem to be achieving way more than me - well done.

    I was reading somewhere that crocheting takes half the time but almost twice the wool.

    I bought some of that patons yarn to use for the top of a little dress the other day - looks like it knits up nicely.

  5. Again, just in awe! You're so good with this knitting! Maybe the pregnancy is making you more inclined? I love the little baby tracker by the way! Hope you are well!
