Handmade Christmas - Lavender Hand Scrub and Knitted Washcloths
Let's carry on with the handmade Christmas, shall we? This gift may seem simple enough, but let me tell you, I'm a slow slow slow knitter...I don't have a whole lot of patience to sit and knit knit knit, and I'm constantly distracted by two small children, so it's no surprise that these two wash clothes took me a few nights in December!! Do you know what I could have sewn in a few nights? Don't even get me started...but alas, it's ok, because my sewing machine was out of service briefly anyway!
I used this great pattern for the washcloths, it was free, after all! It knits up really easy and it's got a pretty edge to boot!
The mason jar contains some amazing lavender hand scrub. I get dry hands in winter...as do several other folks in my family. I'll try just about anything, but a nice olive oil scrub works beautifully! To make it is really simple. Mix 1/2 a cup of sugar with 1/3 a cup of olive oil. Put in several drops of essential oil. Mix it all together. Scoop out a little bit and rub it all over your hands before rinsing them. You won't regret doing this. It makes your hands feel soooo good in the deep dry winter!!
