Good morning all of my dear friends in yarn. I just got back from taking DD to school. It's pea soup fog out there. Slow going to be sure - except for the people that didn't notice that you couldn't see! Or maybe they did and did not care. I don't know.
I doubt that many of you know that I am also into herbs. I make teas and infusions and medicines. I think it's a wonderful way to support your health. I'll make 2 or 3 quarts and maybe a pint or 2 of all different things all at the same time. I have to say that a towel wrapped around the jars looks pretty awful on the counter.
So - I think my newest project will be canning jar covers. Acrylic is a must for holding in the heat. I played with the idea of cotton for a moment or 2 but cotton won't hold the heat like a nice afghan yarn will.
It's so wonderful to have an idea bouncing around inside my head again! whoohooo
I mentioned in my last post that recovering from surgery is slow going. Just going to a doctor's visit is enough to put me out for 2 days. It's being upright that gets me - whether it's sitting or standing. Walking is a little better but not by much.
So - I have my yarns collected and waiting at the foot of my recliner. I have the basic pattern in my head already. Now to think about the best ways to dress it up.
I do have to say - it's wonderful to me that my thoughts are returning to yarn today!
