As I began working with the white coned cotton I quickly realized that it is a bit thicker and fluffier than the variegated blue I used before. I’m making a point to keep my gauge more relaxed so my hands don’t bother me, and when I laid this one out on a pillow to measure it I was surprised to discover that it’s 12″ wide when lightly smoothed out.
That got me to thinking that if I keep on going with the white cotton I could turn this into a nice, decorative hand towel for the kitchen. I’m enjoying knitting with this yarn and my hands aren’t cramping or aching so I think I’ll just keep knitting for awhile.
We had a quiet day at home today, no errands or any reason to go to town. It was nice. We slept in and had a light, late breakfast and later, for lunch we had scrambled egg tacos. I have to be in the mood to cook eggs. Sometimes the smell of eggs cooking makes me queasy, especially first thing in the morning if I’ve got sinus drainage. It made a nice lunch!
Tomorrow the guy from Terminex will be here and I will spend some time catching up with laundry after changing out the sheets on both beds. It’s nice to have two sets for each bed so I don’t have to wash them and immediately put them back on the beds.
Tonight it will be in the mid 40’s and tomorrow it will be 70° by mid afternoon! Amazing. Even for Texas. Should be a perfect opportunity to open the house and get some fresh air circulating while I do a bit of cleaning and start a pot of chicken soup and make a pan of blueberry crisp.
It’s time for the nightly news so I’ll wind up this post and say have a blessed Thursday night, ya’ll. Catch you tomorrow.
