Bet you can't make just one!

I was organizing my yarn the other day, (or trying to) and came across a bag of small balls of leftover dishcloth yarn. It reminded me of a pattern I saw on Abigails' blog for these scrubbies or 'bath poufs'. She calls them Tribbles because like the Tribbles in the Star Trek episode, they multiply. I still have slow dial up service (DSL has still not come to my part of town) so I keep a knitting project next to my computer while I'm waiting for pages to load. These are perfect little projects for computer knitting! And, along with handmade soap, or shower gel, they will make nice little gifts. Bet you can't make just one!!!

My ITEIV tote package is ready to mail out. I hope my partner enjoys it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. I love the Pursenality Plus book that I won in the last ITE swap so much, I'm sending my pal a copy, along with some other goodies.
And....yes, I've been dyeing with kool-aid again - got to start knitting something with this yarn!
I'm also collecting things for my downstream pal in the Knitters Virtual Vacation Swap. I won't say where she is from, just in case she comes across my blog, but we've been e-mailing back and forth and she's so friendly that I'm having trouble trying to stay anonymous! I haven't heard from my upstram pal yet - so if you are reading this - HI! I'd love to hear from you!

Hi Grammie ;D
Thx for stopping by my blog ~ the "Merlot" is coffee that I got from my Knitters Coffee partner in CA. Its really good too. Btw, love the idea for use of time while waiting for pages to load. I use dial up too ~ this is also a great destash project.

Have a great day ~ glad you had a wonderful vacation.

Wow I just watched a Star Trek w/tribbles this am. I love the creatures.
Both kool-Aid skeins are so beautiful. It is kind of difficult to de-stash when making new yarns.
As for KVVS it is difficult to remain anonymous. Good luck w/that one.

The tribbles are a great idea for Christmas presents. Very clever.

I love the bag you are giving away. Are the flowers needle felted onto the bag or where they sewn on separately?
