"Does knitting belong on the floor?-- certainly, if it's in the form of a knitted bathmat," says Szabo. "The choice of yarn was crucial for this design. Worked in a mildew-resistant hemp/cotton yarn, it will gracefully accent any bathroom." This design struck us instantly. We love lacy fine-gauge masterworks as much as the next knitter, but you know what? There's an absolute need to be practical, too, in real life. And what could be more welcome than a cushy washable knitted bathmat? Is this not a perfect housewarming present? Who needs one? Every man, woman, and child in the world.
