What should we do now?
Happy Spring. Lest you think my part of the world is covered in beauty, it is not. This is the only flower sighting with a mile of my home. I'm impatient at best, for the green up to start. Midday and its 37 degrees out. Oh well, I can wear my dream in color hat a bit more. That is one bright side.
I am impatent as well for the week to be over. My dear mom told me not to knit a week ago. I had a steroid injection on the 10th and the instructions were to let it rest as much as humanly possible for 3 weeks. I am off from work for a good stretch coincidentally at this time, so it is arm's best chance to heal. That is one for the bright side.
Al and Fireman will attest to the fact that I am asking, "what should we do NOW?" about a hundred times a day. I've been going to bed at 830 pm. Oh yes, I get up at the regular time. Al left me a list of things to try when I cannot knit today and I am home. They included learning how to fold a fitted sheet. I did go to youtube and watched a demo. I think I agree with a comment to the instructional video,* which was very good.* However , I am not worried about anyone looking in the upstairs linem closet either. I think people around here appreciate a clean sheet whether it is folded nicely or not.
I reorganized the stash yesterday. I was disheartened at how much yarn I have that is leftover. I've decided this:
I need a creamy colored Koigu. Then I will knit Socks with the leftover colored yarns for cuff,heel and toe. The rest of the sock will be cream colored. Or, I can knit the cuff, heel and toe with cream and do the rest in colors.
I am baking. Chocolate chip cookies right now. I found a recipe that called for melting the butter first. I liked this idea. Fireman had to do all the stirring for me. These cookies have decent curb appeal. Or whatever you call it for food. Presentation, I guess. Anyhow, half are with milk chocolate,, and half with semi sweet. Must try to please all the palates on the very rare occasion when I bake.
We are having meatloaf tonight. I think I am much more food focued when I am prohibited from knitting.
I shouldn't be keyboarding either. Fireman makes a mean meatloaf. He was told when he joined the Fire Dept that Firemen are expempt from giving up meat for Lent.
Hmmm what should we do NOW? Perhaps I'll look for a yarn bargain for my Frugal Hungarian Swapper Katherine.
20 really doesn't go far these days. What is your best source for a good deal on yarn?
Have you ever melted the butter before you baked the cookies?
Do you like the leftover yarn idea????
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
