Bath Time Booty and Cookies

With the weather starting to cool off a good bit, I will be taking more baths instead of showers.  There is no better way to relax and warm up than turn on some nice music, light a few candles, maybe have a glass of wine, and take a nice, hot bath.  I've always loved bath accessories like those little scented cubes that dissolve in the water, bubble bath, or whatever.  The last week or so I have been using bath melts, a scrub and soaps from Lydia Marie's Bath and Body Boutique.

Shadow Knitting: 1st Mystery Knitting Project is done!

Ok, here is the picture of the completed item. This was my first real attempt at shadow knitting.  Much easier than I expected, but it does take some thought when charting out the pattern.  I've been using mine as a large coaster, but it really is meant to go on my counter whenever I have something from the oven that needs to cool down.  This will come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner this year because I always seem to run out of potholders/dishtowels to set my hot dishes on.  If you made this as well, I hope you had fun knitting and like the end result.  I will have a new mystery project around the middle of December, so be sure to check back!
Pattern for the Heart Shadow Hot Pad is below the picture.
