Yes, yes knitting yourself beautiful, squishy, scrubby, luxurious washcloths is a little indulgent. But guess what? You are allowed to be indulgent with yourself. I actually think you should find ways to make the ordinary moments in your life as pleasant as possible. Use the nice napkins, even if you’re eating takeout pizza. Wear your favorite lipstick, even if you’re home alone. Keep a tiny vase by the kitchen sink, even if you’re just filling it with pretty weeds from the vacant lot.

Make the little moments better. Because sometimes you cannot fix the big things! But you can probably do one tiny thing to make one tiny part of your day better. For me, right now, that’s fancy washcloths to make washing my face at the end of the day a little more luxurious. And it helps more than you might expect!

The pattern is called Lather, and you can find it on ravelry or payhip. You can use the code SUDSY in either of those places for a little something off through the end of the day Friday. Or, patrons at the Rampant Nonsense level get the pattern included as part of their membership (and a bunch of other patterns too, you can see the current list here).

Or, if you want to really indulge yourself, Little Skein (whose lovely yarns I’ve used here and who is one of the very nicest people in the world) has some amazing kits and other goodies up right over here!
