I love knitting, but I don't get a chance to do it as often as I like. So when was given the opportunity to review Bath Knits by Mary Beth Temple, I was excited and honored to say yes to joining her blog tour! I received a copy of the book to create my honest review... and another copy to giveaway to one very lucky reader! So read on to see what I think!

Mary Beth Temple is a friend of mine, as well as being a fantastic designer, so I was doubly excited to get to review Bath Knits: 30 Projects Made to Pamper. And I'm so happy to say it doesn't disappoint! Rather, it's full of amazing projects to help you create your own spa retreat right at home - luxurious knitted towels, accessories, rugs, and more. And they make great housewarming or new mom gifts too!
The designs in Bath Knits are clean and modern looking, made with contemporary yarns. Most patterns are easy to intermediate in skill level, and quick too - perfect for those of us who knit a little slower!
I made the Exfoliating Washcloth - it was indeed quick and easy! I even learned a bit more about chart reading for knitting, something I've been meaning to do, and this made a great excuse to take the time. I made mine using Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton:
There's a great variety of projects included in Bath Knits! Of course there are towels and washcloths and soap covers, but there are also rugs, baskets, decoration pieces, tray liners, and a whole set to wear - robe, headband, and pedicure socks (and more)! So luxurious!
Mary Beth Temple is one of the first designer names I learned when I was learning to crochet, and she's a well known knit pattern designer and crafter as well!
