Almost Perfect… Washcloth Reflections

on August 7, 2013


One thing about creating handmade items is that they are never quite perfect. For my family, I don’t mind too much. My family is forgiving. Family understands that my son might fall down, I might look up, and I might and lose count of my stitches, and might be a stitch short at the end of the project. But how do consumers view mistakes like this?

I would hope that people purchasing handmade items expect little flaws. Of course I want to make my washcloths as perfect as possible. But if a yarn splits or a stitch is missed, I hope they can be as forgiving as my family.

Tonight I finish this set of washcloths for a wonderful lady. I’ve barely known her, and only online, but I can tell she works hard to support other mothers and she loves her family very much. Whether these washcloths will be used by her or given as a gift, I hope very much that she enjoys getting her package in the mail later this week!
