Books ~ "Bath Knits: 30 Projects Made to Pamper" (2017) Mary Beth Temple

From Goodreads ~ Pamper yourself with knitted bathroom style 

Create a spa-like feel in your own bath with luxurious knitted towels and accessories. These designs offer a clean, modern look in contemporary colors and fibers. Most patterns are easy to intermediate in skill level and are quick knits that will have your bathroom looking its best in no time. 

Looking to knit the perfect gift? These items make thoughtful housewarming or hostess gifts, and are also great for recent grads and even new moms. Features washcloths and mitts - even a robe, slippers, and pedicure socks! Room decor designs include storage baskets, bath mats, wall hangings, and more 30 original knitting patterns and instructions.

I enjoy knitting and the last few years I've been making dish cloths because they are quick to make.  This book caught my eye because I figured the end results would be also be quick to do and something other than a dish cloth.

The book is divided into sections based on colour and style:

  • The Naturals
  • Flower Garden
  • Oceantide
  • Sunny Days
  • Bright and Cheery

Within each section, there are towels, washcloths, bath mitts, bathmats and even a bathrobe with a matching headband and slipper socks!  All knitters, beginners to advanced, will find some fun projects!

There are lots of colour pictures and the instructions seem clear.

Lots of inspiration for things to knit!
