When One Thing Leads To Another

I’ve been working away on the standard garter stitch dishcloth that everyone loves and got to thinking about making a few in a different pattern. The Ball band pattern came to mind but I decided to experiment with some other yarns before combining these for the Ball band pattern. Then I remembered I had the pattern for the Swiffer duster cover and dug that out.

I’m ready to start the two button loop tabs on this one and then I’ll do a couple of these to go with the dishcloths for my daughter. So much easier to just dust, or mop the floor and toss these in the washer and save on the disposable covers. Of course, I’ll probably make a stack of them for both of us!

We slept in, long day for both of us yesterday. Didn’t get to bed til after 1:00 am. Brad is off to get the baked oatmeal from the coffee shop for our breakfast. I need to start a pot of coffee for him. I’ll stick to hot tea for now. I have no idea what the temperature is like outside, haven’t even poked my head outside yet. It’s not supposed to get into the 90’s today so that will be nice. Hope it’s not humid out. There’s a bit of a breeze, but not much. I bet it’s in the low 70’s. We shall see!

I’m looking forward to finishing the dust cover and whipping up another dishcloth for Audrey today. I’ll listen to Bongino later and take a stroll outdoors for some fresh air.

Have a blessed day, ya’ll!

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
