My friend, Linda, gave me a handy little gift and like any good friend, I decided to steal her idea and make more for myself! It's the cutest little knitted sack with soap inside.

First, knit a small tube on your blue Knifty Knitter loom and tie one end together:

Slip in a bar of your favorite soap:

Run a long piece of yarn through the other end:

Pull tight and tie off leaving the long ends to hang on your shower caddy!

It doesn't mold or get smelly in the shower, and by hanging it, it drip dries very quickly.
These would make great gifts using handmade soaps or different yarns for babies and children. I made this one in under half an hour while watching The Office!

You go, Girl! Good job!
I like the yarn color too.

I still haven't been able to get a bootie out of those things.

Linda said...

P.S. That wasn't my idea. It was a pass-along. :o)

I must have made 7+ pairs of socks for holiday gifts! You just don't have the time, or instructions not clear?

I saw something similar I am planning on for next year--felting wool around a bar. then you can do some really nifty color blends....

Are those knitter thingees really worth it? I've seen them, and it seems like you are enjoying yours to the max...

I made five scarves for Christmas and am currently knitting myself a red wool wrap...merino...on sale at Joann's online Black Friday...

I am a clutz when it comes to sizing things.

Maybe if I took more time to do it, I could, but haven't found it yet. The sad thing is, I promised Dominic I would make him some because I always had a pair (from Grandma every Christmas) when I was a child.
Sigh. I'll get to it.
