Time for New Tea Towels

If you know me or have read this blog very often you know I enjoy knitting and crocheting.  Well, I realized recently that our tea towels are looking pretty scary.  So, I whipped out my favorite pattern  (the Dorothea Dish Cloth from Lion Brand) and made two new "dish cloths" or tea towels over the weekend.  I found this pattern on Lion Brand's website a little over a year ago.  Ever since then I've never bought new teatowels.  These are absorbant and sturdy.  And, frankly, I think they're pretty!

I've often talked with other women about how nice it would be to have another bridal shower after several years of marriage.  It's so nice when you're first married and everything in your kitchen and linen closet matches.  Well, being able to make my own tea towels and dish cloths is kind of like giving myself a mini-shower.  Now we get to dry dishes and wipe up spills in style!
