I've been taking stock of things I have - trying to use up what's there before purchasing anything new. Lately I'm not really digging my shower gel, and conveniently I have come into several bars of soap. There's not much room in our shower stall, so I made a little soap pocket so it can hang and dry. This was a fairly quick knit, ignoring the days when I put it down. It's the 'Soap Pocket' from the spa set found in One Skein Wonders - used maybe half a skein of Kollage Corntastic in Ruby. Cute, practical. Use the handknits.
The soap currently in use was a Christmas gift from my MIL - sleepymoonsoaps in Lemongrass Ginger - quite nice.
I knit. A lot. I like to make functional things and silly things, and frequently put these items on my mini-dachshund. When I am not knitting or crocheting I am thinking about these things for my clients, as I am an account manager doing social media marketing for yarn companies, yarn shops and designers. It is a great job that I enjoy and I feel incredibly lucky to have. I am able to work from home and enjoy my two children.
