Crochet Wash Cloths

You can blame the lovely Emma for this post. I love hand knitted and crochet wash cloths, we have a selection of them which we use in the kitchen. They don’t take long to make, brighten up dull chores –  and provide ample opportunity for friendly teasing by visitors – that is until they’re given one to take home! I’ll post the patterns soon. But, Woolfest and a new acquisition come first. The photo was taken by Andrea, the day we took over Fibre and Clay for a photo shoot. Isn’t it amazing how she can make the most mundane object look so glamorous?

Happy Knitting everyone x

ps If any of you will be at Woolfest, let me know. It’s always nice to meet you.

  1. I’ve seen several lovely washcloths and am now making one! I practically finished one on a plane ride for a recent business trip. Love the colors you chose!

  3. You have reminded me that I have a pile of knitted ones (that didn’t sell at a craft fair, despite being prettily presented with bars of soap) I must start giving them as presents!!
    I’ve just emailed you about Woolfest!

#knitting #knittersofinstagram #shawls #neverenoughshawls #woolfest The gooseberries are plump and tart - perfect for gin! This is my favourite summer gin. Add a few elderflowers if you like. Freeze the gooseberries first so they release their flavour.

The leaves make a fabulous "tea" to feed tomatoes (mix in a bucket of water with a handful of nettles), it doesn't smell as bad as comfrey feed and much cheaper / greener than the stuff you buy in garden centres!!
