A friend of mine is moving into a new house. Its a new/old house, new to her family, but older house with lots of beautiful comfortable appeal. You know the houses you fall in love with? It sits close to a pond...
Well, I want to make her a house warming gift, this Pear Trivet by Dishcloth Diaries is just a gorgeous addition to her gift basket, but I ran out of the orange cotton! Stash busting...Yarn diet...Orange is her favorite college team colors! Hmmmmm..... Would you buy 1 skein of dishcloth cotton to finish this or work it in a different color?
I'm also going to make her a few loaves of homemade bread. I use olive oil and sea salt in my recipe. Its a french bread recipe, love it and will share soon. :) Its very simple, crusty on the outside and soft in the center. I've mostly given up breads, pastas and other rapidly absorbing carbs, but I miss making home made bread.
But I digress...
What would you do in this yarn situation?
What are some of your favorite handmade, knitted, crochet, etc. gifts to make for house warmings?
I am staying tuned for your help! :)
