I'm joining Ginny for Yarn Along again today, and we're still reading The Magic Faraway Tree. The story is so sweet and funny, a perfect mix of magical, silly, and 40s-era language that I just love. I just started a little hat for a friend. I haven't gotten very far, and frankly, I've been in less of a knitting mood since the weather warmed. I keep finding sewing projects that I want to start though!
Even though the lighting in here is horrible due to lack of windows, I wanted to get a few shots. This bathroom has been in sore need of a little makeover. I had a gift card to Home Goods where I found this shower curtain, a few new ivory towels, and a espresso brown cotton rug to go in front of the sink.
What I couldn't find was a little bathmat that matched the curtain. I did find a little bath mat pattern at the Purl Bee that seemed like it would be a perfect fit in this little spot. I blindly picked colors from the new Knit Picks line of bulky weight pima cotton yarn and amazingly the colors matched almost exactly.
With the leftover yarn from the bathmat, I even made a matching hand towel (no pattern, just stockinette with a garter border). Spring seems all the nicer when you spruce up a few spots in the house.
