Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…

This is my coned cotton stash…about two dozen cones on one shelf.

This is the last order of cotton yarn I got in the mail from Walmart a couple of weeks ago.

So, I really hadn’t planned on ordering more yarn. And, yet I did. It’s at the post office and I can pick it up when I go to town on Tuesday. I had gone to JoAnn’s looking for some buttons and plastic rings and only found buttons. When I got home I went online to see if I could order the plastic rings I needed. I was in luck and found them on JoAnn’s website. Then I thought that one little bag of plastic rings was a very small order…so I decided to check out JoAnn’s supply of cotton yarn online.

I found the same larger balls of yarn like I found online at Walmart but in a better selection of colors. I ordered a lovely dusty rose and some green yarn among others. Those colors will work well in my kitchen along with the blue yarn I already purchased.

In my defense, I’ve emptied more than half a dozen partial cones of cotton yarn and made a pretty good dent in four more full cones in the past several months, having knitted five dozen wash cloths and four hand towels. At least that is my rationale for ordering 16 more large balls of yarn. It will all be put to good use.

We are all battling allergies again and the weather is humid after several more inches of rain. The grandkids are staying home from church in the morning since they are all stuffy and congested. Brad will most likely deliver lunch to them at the farm after church.

I’m still reading Brother Cadfael novels and knitting on sock ribbing. I’ve just finished “The Devil’s Novice” and started “Dead Man’s Ransom”, the ninth book in the series. I was only a chapter or two from finishing “The Devil’s Novice” when the battery on my Kobo e-reader was in need of charging and it occurred to me that I have the Kobo app on my phone. I put the e-reader on to charge and finished reading the book on my android phone. The Kobo is now fully charged and I’m back to using that. The sock ribbing is coming along nicely if somewhat slowly. I’ll get both pairs finished eventually.

I’m happier now that I’m off Locals social media and not keeping up with Bongino any longer. The dude really rubbed me the wrong way about his attitude over the school shooting in Uvalde. He’s always been so good about saying that he won’t rush to report something until he has all the facts and he really messed up this time. I’m sick of the emotional crap from him and Matt Walsh as well. Oh, well. Such is life. I much prefer Gab and MeWe anyway. I’m not on Twitter much but I am following Fr. Frank Pavone, Bishop Strickland of the Tyler Diocese, Sr. Mary Joseph, Lila Rose, and Life News. And I get a kick out of Elon Musk. He cracks me up.

Our landscape guys showed up with only about half an hour of daylight left yesterday evening and made short work of mowing and trimming the yard. Bless their hearts! They hit the ground running and didn’t stop until they were finished with our 3 acre yard and it took them less than half an hour, with very little daylight left to see what they were doing. Then, late last night we got more rain! Not a lot and no storms this time, but there’s more than two inches of water in the rain gauge since Brad emptied it the last time.

It’s 10:00 pm and I’m already showered and ready for bed. Brad is winding down and getting ready to hit the bed as well. As far as I know we don’t have any storms in our forecast for tonight. Have a blessed Saturday night, 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.
