Knitting and Nuts!

Recently, I mentioned in a blog post that I was working on a project that I couldn't mention yet, because it was for a gift. Well, the gift has been gifted, and now I can show it to you!

Dishcloth Britches are a favorite project of mine for bridal showers, and I have recently taken the time to record a couple of variations of the poem that goes along with them on my project page for this gift (I can't take credit for any of the verses, I trolled the internets to find them, and I used the first one on this project). The idea is simple. . .knit two, square-ish dishcloths and "sew" them into tiny britches with ribbons at the waist, ankles and a little bow at the top of the inseam. . .cute, huh?To use them, the recipient undoes the ribbons and bows, and viola! Dishcloths! (Or washcloths, one of the poems has an option for that, too!) Super cute! You know what else is super cute?

Peanut and Grampa in their matching sun hats! Peanut looks a little unsure about it at first, but Grampa looked high and low for that hat for her. . .you gotta protect that soft, baby skin. . .and now they match! lol In the end, her time with Grampa left Peanut in stitches!

Those two, they are Nuts about each other. Who can blame them?!?

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
