Some Grandma quilts
The handyman is coming tomorrow morning: I'll be getting a new countertop for my sewing area.
In the process of emptying out the cabinet on the left, I rediscovered my stash of unravelled thrift store sweater yarn, and cast on a 6-strand cotton bathmat with some of it. I was happily knitting a few sections of that while watching TV this evening. There's always something therapeutic about mindless cotton knitting, whether it's dishcloths or rugs or blankets. It's been the kind of week at school where you need therapeutic knitting. Grades due, 7th grade drama, 8th grade stress, 6th grade squirreliness. And Tae Kwon Do in my classroom.
