Through emailing, I found out she loves to cook and bake and her favorite color is purple (same as me). I followed the tutorial here at Domessticated to make a Help H@nd which is a knock-off version of Rachael Ray's Moppine. It's a combination oven mitt and kitchen towel. I made it out of a bath towel I bought a few months ago. If I were to make it again, I'm not sure I would use a towel. I had a hard time sewing through all the layers.
She lives on a mini-farm, so I decided to also knit this cow dishcloth. The pattern is from the 2011 Dishcloth Calendar and written by Elaine Fitzpatrick of Down Cloverlaine. I love all of her patterns!
I had fun participating in the gift exchange. I hope my partner likes her gift. If you want to see what others made for it, check out the Handmade Gift Exchange Linky Party.
