where i've been hiding
A yarn shop opened about 3 blocks from my house. Honestly if my little town would get a quilt shop I would never have to leave the city limits again. At my first stop, I found the yarn. Then came home to start knitting and realized I didn't have a size 2 needle. No problem. All I had to do was walk back up the hill. At this point, I knew I had to switch to a size 6 for the crown, but did I check to see if I had a 6 - of course not. A couple of days later the brim was done, I was digging for 6 but only came up with 8 and 9. No problem. I really like having a yarn shop in town.
The pattern is "aloof" from hattitude, a book of knitted hats that a friend gave me for the birthday.
I've also been working on a quilt.
I've have definitely been eating far too many of these.
I've been patching jeans.
I've also discovered that iLs takes a serious commitment. I didn't really think an hour a day, 5 times a week would really bite into a schedule, but it does.
The other thing I didn't expect was to see a such change in him, but that's a story for another day.
There has also been play dough. This time it's blue.
1 cup flour
1/3 cup salt
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar
1 cup of water
1 Tablespoon oil
liquid food coloring
Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, water, and oil. Place over low heat. Stirring constantly until it is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Remove from heat. Add food coloring. Stir until color is blended. Knead dough until smooth.
