Tuesday we had the Christmas party for my home group. I like to make something for them. Last year, I made coffee cozies, (http://wp.me/pKNzn-lD).

This year, as I was unpacking my Christmas decorations, I looked at my favorite Christmas kitchen towel. It is velvety soft and had blanket-stitched yarn on the edges. I decided to make kitchen towels like it for my home group.

I was looking at kitchen towels, and when I saw a velvety one with penguins on it, I had to get it for my friend who collects penguins. I found another one with a snowman sipping hot cocoa for my other friend.

I used green yarn to blanket stitch the edge of the penguin towel and variegated red yarn for the snowman towel. (I thought it needed jazzed up a bit.)

It didn’t take long to do and I enjoyed thinking about them as I added that detail. After all, it’s the thought that counts!


The kitchen towels I added blanket-stitch yarn to for Christmas gifts.
