Bad picture but it shows most of what I have stashed in a closet…some are works in progress, some of it I have definite plans for (like the lime green) but most is I-don’t-know-what-I’m-going-to-do-with-it-yarn. Ah, the life of a knitter. (and yes, I have looked into free-cycling as well as other charities) I could get together with another knitter and tempt them with my free stash but that would be just evil.
Anyway, I don’t have enough yarn in one color to make much except hats or scarves. So, I could make a million hats and scarves and hope that someone would enjoy the old scratchy version of acrylic yarn (it’s changed over the years, and the stuff I have is o l d). However, I happened upon the charity, Project Linus. They take donations of homemade blankets to give to children in hospitals.
So, I think I’ve decided to give another go at a patchwork kind of blanket/afghan/throw. I’m sure to add hats to my knitting and find a charity to donate those as well. Not sure many homeless Georgians would want to haul around a hat and scarf for the couple of times a year it gets cold enough to actually use them, but who knows.
The following made me smile this week:
- the sun shining on my face
- finding a bag of Skittles in an unexpected place—a bad memory sure comes in handy
- sleeping with the windows open and turning off the air conditioning
- you know the tags that are placed on sunglasses and readers? The tags right at the bridge of the nose that get in the way when trying them on to see what they look like? Most of us have been there. I saw a lady trying on a pair of readers and testing them…..with the rather large tag flipped up to rest on her forehead.
I hope you find something to smile about today!
