I love working with cotton yarn but the new blanket is not working out. The yarn is just not soft enough to be a blanket so I’ve decided to give up on it and down the road will use it to make a market bag or two and some dishcloths. I did a quick search on Ravelry and I will have lots of bag patterns to choose from.
So last night after making the decision to give up on the blanket, I debated whether to start a new one or to pick my knit one back up … I know it seems like this is taking me forever to finish and you’re right it is … but I will finish it quicker if I keep working on it so I’m back at it. It’s not a hard pattern and I like knitting it … it’s just slow going which is probably why I like crocheting blankets better. They’re quicker and I get to start something new faster! This is also a cotton yarn but it is soft and has nice drape.
Keith watched from his office today as 3 deer walked down the street … he snapped a photo of the one that came down the driveway. I knew having the big windows in the office would entertain him, he likes watching the world go by. We’ll miss watching the deer visit when we head home this weekend.
