A busy week-end and beautiful weather, I couldn’t ask for more. I got a chance to sit outside and read. It is always nice to find a good book and relax in the fresh air. I’ve started another book. This one is about a yarn store and a knitting group. It’s not my usual type of book and I’m not feeling pulled to sit down with it, but I’ll give it a shot.
I managed to get my manicure and pedicure in. Now I’m ready for sandals and my hands are soft and snag-free for knitting.
The baby sweater is coming along nicely. I finished one sleeve and I am about halfway along on the second sleeve. I will be working on it more today as I sit outside. It is really nice out already this morning.
I also made another trip to JoAnn’s. I read their flyer wrong and thought that the flannel was half off. It will be, but not until next week-end for their holiday sale. I did find a few remnants so the trip wasn’t a total waste.
The reason I was looking for flannel is that I was asked for a few more burp cloths. I made up a dozen or so of them and I’ll be making up a few more so I have some on hand for the next request. They really are nice to give as a gift. The store-bought ones just don’t compare. Then again, when does anything store-bought compare to handmade? I was looking online for a tutorial on making burp cloths to link with the photos, but I can’t find any that are like the ones I make. Most of what I found online uses store-bought diapers and just dresses them up. If anyone is interested in making a few and doesn’t know how, I will put together some instructions for you. Just let me know.
