I swore off Christmas gift knitting years ago – and I went about my life just fine.
But then Rosemary Hill released the Silvermist Bath Set and I couldn’t resist – it’d be perfect for my mom. It had to be knit.
I knitted on it a bit for a few nights and had this lovely washcloth.
And then a few more days and I had this cute little soap sack.
I think it was more work to find a soap I liked. I went to five stores before I found something that would work – right size, nice smell, no additives. Mom deserves the good stuff. This one is Lemon Verbena.
I washed and dried the washcloth in hot water in case mom actually uses it. Then I used a steamer to get rid of the rippley egg crates. Knowing mom it will stay out on the vanity and never get a moment of actual use. She wouldn’t want to hurt it after all.
Love that woman.
Either way, I hope it makes her feel loved and cared for every time she looks at it.
Merry Christmas mom.
