Keeping It Simple
I've had a bad cold this week and feel kind of lousy, but not so bad that I can't knit. Keeping it simple is the best way to go when you don't feel well, so I've been making hats and booties for The Preemie Project--trying to use up some Bernat Cotton Tots yarn I've had in my stash for awhile. I love the blue in this hat. It's called blue berry. It makes me happy just to look at it. A nice change from the all white knitting earlier.
The weather has been a little cooler, so I've been wearing my felted clogs a lot. They are breaking in nicely and I'm enjoying them even more than I thought I would. Last night I was looking for something in the pantry and knocked an unopened bottle of Tabasco Sauce off the shelf. I experienced a sinking feeling as I saw the bottle falling and knowing that it would land on the hard tile floor near my feet...my clog clad feet! The bottle survived, but the plastic lid broke and sauce squirted out onto the wall and my pant leg. Somehow the clogs were spared from all but one drop which I wiped off quickly before it had time to absorb into the fabric. That was lucky! Now the pants...that's a different story.
