Previously, I wrote about the Soap Cozy I made for myself in lieu of a washcloth. As promised, I have come to report. It works very well! Except for the part where I left it at my parents house in Boston when I moved out here.
Well, lucky for me, last summer my hubby-to-be was really upset about leaving for California by himself. I lovingly knit him one of his own to send his way as a surprise and to help him feel more at home in this strange new land.
I picked dark blue because it matched the towels he loved and took with him, and filled it with home-made soap.
I learned from my last one, though! I made this one bigger so the soap could fit inside more easily, though it's still a hassle. With my first one, I have to break the soap into slivers to slide it in now that the i-cord is fastened, and so with this one I almost doubled the width. Overall, it still works well and gets the job done.
PS: No dying in my sleep of bacteria, though I do make a point to let it dry out and to wash it between bars of soap.
