I can't believe it is Wednesday already.
Time for the Yarn Along with Ginny again.
I told you I would knit something with green
and here it is.
The yarn is 100% Simply Cotton Worsted
in Envy Heather.
These pictures do not do the color justice.
It really is quite lovely.
I am making myself some slippers.
The same slippers my Grandmother and Mother
used to knit for me way back when.
Same pattern, different yarn.
They always used the plastic phentex for these.
And although they last forever, as plastic tends to do
they offered little comfort and even less warmth.
I am just going to start this Wally Lamb book.
In truth, I started reading it a while back and I was enjoying it.
I was foolish enough to read a review which was negative so
I returned it to the library. I didn't want to waste
my time on such a long book if it wasn't going to be good.
So I will try it again .
And speaking of green, I have this lovely merino wool
waiting to be turned into something grand.
It was to be a sweater for Athena but
I am afraid I may have miscalculated the amount of wool I'd need.
Now, I just don't know, but after I finish these quick slippers
that yarn will be next on the needles.
I did, however, make this stack of washcloths from my leftover
cotton stash. That is the reason why the sizes are all different.
No matter, they work equally as well in the shower
or to clean a little one's face.
