Make a basket for mother's day!

Ma Spa!

Here is a basket full of goodies we made for Mom on her special day.  We filled ours with:

All the projects work up in under 2 hours; if you have several crafters of varying levels of skill, this is a great project because the buff puff only requires the use of a large-eyed blunt needle and can easily be made by a kindergartener!

We added some silk flowers and a nice assortment of lotion, bubble bath and sweet-smelling shower wash for a lovely gift!

This textured washcloth is just the thing when you want to smooth those toes or scratch your back! No knitting or crochet skills are required -- a prefect project for a younger child Lace edging makes this the prettiest washcloth ever! Knit or crochet this luxurious manicure mitt
Rub-a-Dub-a-Scrub Invigorating Washcloth to Crochet or Knit Easy-to-Make Buff Puff Lacy Lady Knit Washcloth Soothing, Softening Mitts to Knit or Crochet

Mothers Day!

Welcome to our May newsletter! School's winding down to a close, and we're getting ready for tons of summer fun!

This newsletter features patterns you can make -- quickly and at a reasonable price -- for Mother's Day. We have a lovely spa basket that's easy to put together, fun to make, and even more fun to receive! We also have a felted eye glasses case, and a spool knit hot pad/ potholder.

We hope you enjoy this issue, and we can't wait to show you lots of fun summer patterns in June. Until then --

Enjoy!

Quick Tip!

The bag from the cherry tomatos is a perfect way to keep the yarn together!
Look what we found!  It came free around the tomatoes and makes a PERFECT holder to keep pull-skeins of yarn from unrolling when being used!

Spoolknit these simple flower hot pad

Daisy Hotpad


April showers bring May flowers. 

Our spool-knitting project for the month is a bright and cheerful daisy made from Lion Cotton. Use it as a hotpad on the table or a potholder in the kitchen.   It's totally washable and gets thicker and nicer with washing!

You could easily make this as a group project with each person making one or two petals.  By the time an hour is up, you'll have enough for a finished piece!  A skein of Lion Cotton will make several, so you can get three or four colors and mix and match for hours of creative fun!

And, if you're babysitting, when Mom comes home, what a fun surprise for her when the kids say "I made it MYSELF and its just for YOU!"


Felted  Project

This design for a glasses case is a great first felting project and it goes perfectly with the felted tote that was shown in a previous adult newsletter.

What is felting? 

Its a way to process items made of wool yarn so that the fibers in the knitting bond together into a thick, stable, non-stretchy fabric.  In short -- the perfect material to protect your glasses from scratches!
