I have been knitting a lot of dishcloths/washcloths recently and most of them are for sale in my Etsy shop. Some of them I decided to give as presents to friends and family. They looked so pretty, I decided the only thing missing is some homemade soap. Well, making soap is a bit complicated and at the time I am not equipped for it. But I bought some glycerin soap, purple die and soap molds at the hobby store (I used lavender oil that I already had for scenting) and now I at least have some handmade soaps to got with my washcloths. And I collected some of the pretty maple leaves off the trees in our front yard and made some birthday cards with them.
