I have recently been involved in a global swap ... in that the swappees came from many locations across the world. The swap was for a pair of pot holders, plus a little something of the sender's choice.
I love swaps! And a swap article made quickly I love even more! The problem of what colour to use solved itself as I sorted through my [not inconsiderable] stash. A bright print featuring cherries and flowers, teamed with red, would brighten any kitchen ... and be useful into the bargain.
I also forwarded a mug rug as 'the little extra'.
Often when involved in BOM's I find myself in need of a little break, an urge to actually complete a wee project there and then.
Dishcloths fall into that category. A couple more to add to my growing pile of instant gifts. These dishcloths are knitted from a cotton bamboo yarn and I can assure you that they are excellent not only in their usage, but in their longevity. I have been using two dark cream dishcloths [washing them in a cold water wash each wash day] and they show no sign of wearing out.
Another swap I entered into was for a Christmas in July gift ... Walter the Snowman was a lot of fun to construct! One or two more of them are high on my agenda.
