Bathtime Blossoms for the Holidays

Bathtime Blossoms
Originally uploaded by sunasak
This was my weekend knitting project. I realized there was a relative who needed something, and I knew that this would be a good choice--Bathtime Blossoms, by Evelyn Clark, a Fiber Trends pattern. There are three variants, but the "Blossom" one is my favorite. I also made the matching soap sack, and put a lovely bar of soap inside it. This knits up quickly--it was done over a weekend that included a lot of time shopping in scenic Fredericksburg, Texas, a visit to a friend who makes hand-made outdoor furniture near Kerrville, and a long hike around the incredibly beautiful Enchanted Rock. So, not all that much knitting time!

Yeah, I had a GREAT weekend with my sweet man Lee, buoyed by knowing I had job interviews all lined up. Amazing how that helps. If you want to see more of the trip photos, click the Flickr gallery link in the left column. You might have to go through a couple of others, but they will be the 50+ ones of interesting buildings and rocks after that. Really pretty rocks.

Keep thinking of me. The place I phone interviewed at yesterday wants me back today for in-person, and the place where I met Lee wants me in tomorrow for an interview for a great job at great pay. I haven't even had time to look for NEW jobs this week!


  1. I love the vibrant colors on the bath set! What fun. Congrats on the interviews... let's hope it keeps sounding positive!

  2. What kind of yarn did you use?

    This looks gorgeous -- I'd never heard of a "bathtime" cloth. What a great idea!

  3. What kind of yarn did you use, and more or less how much did it take?

    I'd never heard of knitting "bathtime" stuff, and it's a fabulous idea. Yours is gorgeous.

  4. It's SR Kreutzer Butterfly Super 10 Multi. Really nice quality Egyptian cotton. You could use any cotton yarn, though. It looks better in something finer than Sugar and Cream, though. Not sure how much yarn it was, but there was a good amount left on the skein. The sekin has 220 yards.
