Pattern Description:

The texture in Cholla Spa Set reminded me of the Cholla Cactus skeletons seen in the desert and used extensively by woodworkers to create their own special wonders. Using a natural or pastel colorway for this set really sets off the texture - there is a right and wrong side.

This pattern consists of instructions to make a Washcloth, Facial Scrubbie, Bath Scrubbie, and Bath Puffie. 4 ounces of cotton will make all 4 pieces with plenty left over for multiples of the Facial Scrubbies. (I made two of them and could probably have gotten a couple more from the leftover yarn...).

These are terrific sellers at Farmer's Markets, perfect to include in a gift basket for someone special, but really GREAT to spoil yourself.

Add some bubbles, a wonderfully scented soap (I prefer handmade soap or bath salts from my favorite soap maker on Facebook - let me know if you need the link - they're just yummy!), maybe a candle or two and a glass of wine and you're ready to treat yourself like royalty.

A potter primarily, I also have this huge fascination for fibers - doesn't matter if it's ...
