File this under "better late than never."
As you know, I announced the completion of the bath mat ages (yonks for the Aussies) ago, but I'm only just now getting around to showing it off. You know, in all it's bathroom light, CFL bulb, slightly blurry, not the best photo, but it's what I got, glory.
Here's a close-up -- now with more blur!
Absorba with wooden, not-so-pointy needles was a bit of a challenge on the hands. I mean, you are knitting three strands of already pretty thick yarn together. But it did get easier with silky-smooth metal needles. Still, my gnarly talons were screaming for mercy by time I bound off my last rectangle. This seemingly simple project is not for the faint of heart.
The result is all that we'd hoped and dreamed. As the days grow shorter and the temps begin to dip, our pruney tootsies are grateful for the protection from the cold tile floor when we step from the shower. It is as absorbent as its name. At an inch thick, could it be anything else?
FO's On Parade!
While I have been writing some of the best blog entries ever known to the blogosphere in my head, I have scant time to commit them to bytes. Hopefully that will change now that our office is organized.
Though I haven't been blogging much, I have been knitting. Hold onto your hats, people. The FOs are coming!
