With Spring and Summer warm temperatures here in the United States and other countries in this hemisphere knitters and crocheters are looking for "take along projects" and lightweight but fun projects to keep them occupied through the summer months. That vacation with family or the lazy day picnic with friends its always great to have take along projects. Knit and watch the sun go down. Happily I have THE perfect designer for this summer! Ezcareknits designs some of the coolest looking face/wash/dishcloths.
I know I used to be a little skeptical of "dishcloth" patterns until I realized both my kids had sensitive skin and really needed 100% cotton wash cloths for their baths. Of course I could buy 100% organic cotton cloths from the store but those aren't very much fun. I still like to use the 100% cotton cloths to this day. Ezcareknits really makes finding a great cloth pattern easy and fun. Like a treasure hunt. Something for everyone! I first discovered ezcare knits when looking for a cloth with a dragon design. Which of course I found almost immediately here. Such great detail. Naturally when someone asked about cloths with farm animals designs my mind turned to ravelry and right away ezcare knits had a wonderful barnyard full. With chickens, horses, a baby lamb, a mother goose, and even a buffalo! Bathtime becomes FUNtime!
With 443 wash/dishcloth patterns to choose from everyone can find something they enjoy. However, I wanted to draw attention to what could be the perfect thank you gift. I have dear friends and family who are in the medical field and while not a medical person persae my husband Tom is a fitness trainer and coach. He's also a paraprofessional in the local school district. We are often served by people who rarely get the thanks they so richly deserve. A lovely, and simple way to show appreciation is provided by ezcareknits. Check out her collection of cloths for professionals and volunteers. The detail in each design really shows a knitter put effort into creating it. Here are a few great ideas: stethoscope, paramedic symbol, first aid kit, an apple, even a full set of numbers for that special teacher. For every hobby or profession there's at least one cloth in the collection I'm sure would fit the occasion. Ezcareknits has specials too.
You all know I'm big on knitting for children and babies. There are so many genuinely lovely patterns for baby gifts, showers, first birthdays, and charities that collect little items for diaper bags. Ezcareknits is the place to go for GREAT gifts. Blankets? Absolutely! Diaper covers? Definitely! The all important hats? YES!
How about bibs? Patterns ready and waiting! What about baby shower themed ideas to reveal the gender of the baby or to roll up in one of those cute diaper cakes?? Super cute ideas! A "cowgirl" might be a cute reveal or how about the train themed baby cocoon in a lovely blue color? There are a veritable plethora of baby themed washcloths to suit every taste with the ezcare knits pattern small cloth pattern special!
I really enjoyed ezcareknits new "Zibbet" store. I'm sure you will too! Check it out: https://www.zibbet.com/ezcareknits! Do you tweet? I have a twitter account but I must admit I rather let it lapse. However, ezcareknits has a twitter account!
With such a large presence on the web you are sure to find ezcareknits busy creating designs or answering questions. I'm really excited about this find because ezcareknits lives just over the border from me in Vermont. YAY So get your cotton out and get your knit on... its time to enjoy some fun knitting!
