Summer is officially gone and autumn has greeted us with devastating floods throughout many parts of New South Wales and Victoria. We are safe here where we are but nonetheless we are touched by what we see on the news everyday. Our thoughts are certainly with those badly affected by nature this last week.
I feel even more blessed to be able to continue my life quite untouched by the heavy rain elsewhere. I am knitting regularly now and I'm in a happier place than I was in the miserable cold summer. Reality and my expectations of what autumn should be is matching up. My brain is at ease with that.
So let's continue where we left off last week. I showed you the pretty potholders I crocheted while trying to get my crafting mojo back. It still brightens up my day whenever I lay eyes on them. Such simple pleasures when you create something yourself.
I also wanted to make something to show off the softness of the EcoOrganic Cotton. They are just so lovely against the skin. Well, it's a no brainer really. I made facecloths! I so, so wish you can touch these!

The facecloths are just pure luxury against the skin, especially when you're having a spa moment in the bath. Simply light some candles, pour your favourite aromatic oil into the bubbly bath and soak up the warmth. Stay in that moment and enjoy the softness of the washcloth against your skin as you lather your weary body with gentle soap bubbles. Feel your sanity returning to you...
Oh EcoOrganic Cotton, how I love thee!
My love affair with this yarn continues over the next few weeks. I'll be using EcoOrganic Cotton in such happy ways that I really, really can't wait to show them to you. It feels super good to be working through my stash too. It's ironic how being frugal actually makes me feel proud of myself. *Pats myself on the back* So until we meet again, take care and happy knitting! ^__^
ETA: I almost forgot to tell you that Ecoyarns actually has 10 different types of cotton yarn to pick from. Ten! I have also tried Pakucho organic cotton but not the rest. Interested to see how each one knits up. So many choices, so little time!
