|Lovely blues and greens|
I finished another Instant Gratification Cloth in record time. It was originally going to be for us, but I realized I had a birthday party to go to this weekend and needed a gift. Nate's Auntie Ellen and Uncle Jeff are having a combined birthday party to celebrate their 50th Birthday and they are going all out - they rented a section of a park and are having it catered and everything. And as money is tight with us...I figured I'd knit them a gift! But, as I only had two days....Instant Gratification Cloth was needed. I had started a new pattern I found on Ravelry that was a Garter Ridge Dishcloth and it was super easy. I will definitely be making more of these :)
I loved how the yarn striping worked out as well. I will have to go to Walmart and get more of this yarn, seeing as how it is now discontinued :( I found the Peaches and Creme yarn to be much nicer on my hands and it felt a little bit more flexible.

For Auntie Ellen and Uncle Jeff's present I paired the finished Instant Gratification Cloth with a lovely soap I picked up at Bellevue Beauty Walk. It's called By The Sea, and it is a shea butter soap made in England. It smells delicious, and I absolutely adore the packaging. Little known Amy fact but I simply adore the Victorian era and Newport, RI being a beach town that was popular during the Gilded Age it is very fitting...that little Victorian miss in her swimsuit could have been me over a 100 years ago. So, with the cloth and soap Nate also picked out several amusing MikWright coasters from Pleasant Surprise.
