      It has been a very slow week here. I used up leftovers from two balls of yarn that was originally socks, which I crocheted into my hexagon puff stitch blanket +2. I love it for using up scraps. Then I decided it would be a good idea to start a Vivid blanket by TinCanKnits so I purchased three skeins of natural colored Fisherman's Wool by LionBrand -6. I'm enjoying the rustic qualities of this yarn.

      Knitting not only relaxes me, it also brings a feeling of being at home.

      Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.

        Very nice square. I love how the knit square matches exactly to the blocking foam !

        Spice2s it just came out perfectly that way, which makes it very easy to block all the squares to the same size!

      I used up more scraps and finished the battenberg this week and started a new smaller one with leftovers. I have a bag of yarn ready to donate but I won’t post it as a plus until I actually drive it to the donation center.

        I’ve been working on a couple of larger projects, nothing finished yet. I’ve used up a lot of sock leftovers, but I will post all of the numbers next week when it’s finished.

          “It is a queer thing. In a time of great need, when powerful leadership is demanded, the people—confused and excited—hear only the strident voices of the audacious, and refuse to listen to the voice of wisdom which, being wise, is temperate.”

                I bought some yarn on sale this week. I got a great discount on some undyed from Dyer Supplier so I can do some more experiments with hand dyed. And I got some Bernat Baby yarn for a baby blanket design I've been rolling around in my brain. I also used up a couple of skeins and, sadly, had to throw away a couple of skeins that were damaged by rodents or something. I was planning to make my test knit sweater from that yarn and now I don't have enough. 😭 I already committed to the test knit so I'm off to Tulsa to find something on clearance I hope!
