the comfort of doing

After a whirlwind morning of a  clinic visit, shopping and cooking, the cool damp weather made for great napping.

I wanted to be doing something with my hands but had no brain driving that train so I took the crochet basket off the shelf and cranked out two of these while we watched a little mindless TV. Sylvester Stallone should leave it alone.

I made sets of these cotton string pot holders or dish scrubbers for myself years ago and still have them. Like 20 years ago.

The vampires were happy with Jim's vintage today which made all of us happy.

Glad to hear that Jim's vintage passed muster! The potholders are a lovely, practical thing - and isn't amazing how long they last? Hand knit washcloths are wonderful too.

Yea! Glad that the vampires were happy with Jimmy's donation. A friend is a vampire and she told me about an elderly man who was undergoing treatment. He was tired of explaining where his good vein was, so he had Tweety bird tattooed on his arm with the beak pointing to the "sweet" spot. :) I have made the potholders and dishclothes and they are fantastic quick gifts that last forever. Take care!!
