I love participating in Ginny's Yarn Along!
I've been knitting all week! My dishwasher went out and my hubs and I decided not to get one for awhile. It's not like I don't know how to do dishes or anything after 37 years of marriage and two children and two grandchildren. I actually prefer to do dishes sometimes. It brings back memories of my childhood which included my older sister and I doing the nightly dishes in one of the smallest kitchens I can remember. It was cozy, though!!!!
But now, the reason for knitting was to get an arsenal of dishcloths for my kitchen. I am the type that wears my dishcloths out! They are threadbare when I finally put them in the rag bag (still don't throw them out). So I got out my cotton stash and went to work. I actually have enjoyed this knitting because it is mindless and still keeps me busy. I'm using my old standby pattern which is so simple yet they look so cute! I must admit her dishcloths look much more appealing than mine but it's a simple pattern.
The book I'm looking at (not really reading but sort of.....kind of.....lol) is Hans Brinker! I remembered the movie Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates. It's winter and it's a 'winter' book so thought I'd check it out.
And this is why knitting and reading sound good about now!!!!
