New additions to the family

Something I've been waiting forever to happen has FINALLY happened!!




Please welcome!!

My Whirlpool babies!

DH surprised me with these yesterday! I'm so happy! I don't even care that they're not new (the washer is from 1990) but they have been working great and they hold a ton. Love them. I might miss going to the laundrymat but probably not :)

Sneak peek

I'm hoping that by the time August is over, I'll have enough of these to make a funky little blanket for the back of the couch. I teach at a summer camp, so I will be pressed for time once the kids get out of school, but I think I can do it.

I'm using Sugar & Cream yarn for this, though the pink yarn is from a little tiny ball I had left over. I'm not sure what the brand is, but it's a similar texture. I'm sort of aiming for an "ugly" blanket here. Nothing fancy. The pattern is from the Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth!
