Christmas exchange pics

I had the honor of being selected as Maria's exchange partner for the Christmas exchange in one of my groups . It a really nice, well run group which I really enjoy. Maria claims to be a new knitter but you'd never guess from the outstanding job she did with cotton. Cotton who is unforgiving when you mess up on your tension just a smidge? Above is a bib she did for my granddaughter along with some coffee for my upcoming coffee drinking delights.

And although I've been having trouble with pics this week (which is why there haven't been any postings) you can see the 4 holiday cloths she made. The white and green both have the same tree pattern knit into them and the red is a different tree. The multi colored one is a beautiful pattern. All the non-knitters in my household have commented on how cute they are. I have to agree.

Thanks Maria!

Looks like you have some nice goodies. I've never tried holiday dish clothes. I did make some Dragonfly and Butterfly ones for my sister that she loved. I made her lots of different patterned dish clothes for her housewarming gift....they were lots of fun to make.

Hey, I am in that group too. That is the exchange I got my lovely cashmere/silk/merino yarn from. Looks like you got a nice package too.

I've got to rethink my former disdain for knitted dishcloths. I'm fighting the smelly-sponge issues and it just might not be worth it! Love the holiday versions!

That's a very nice package you received at this very busy time of year!

Thanks for adding substance to my blogging year.

Maybe the cats know its Christmas. Love the dishclothes. I should try my hand at some.

What a nice package! She's doing really good if she can knit cotton well. I've been knitting for years and I still can't knit cotton worth a darn. It's still fun to make bibs and dishcloths though.

I love your Christmas dishcloths! I haven't seen any Christmas patterns like these.....I wish I had seen them sooner! If the pattern is one that you can share I would love to have a copy for next year!

Thank you for visiting my blog recently, and I very much appreciate the caring comment.

It looks like you will have lots of fun with those lovely cloths, and a good cuppa always goes down nicely.

I love your Opal socks, and that Tilly shawl is gorgeous! Like me, I see you keep your needles very busy.

Have a great Christmas! Take care.
