So, not much new around here, but I do have an interesting quote for you.
Grace Heikkinen: “Don’t you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in the day to eat all the food you want to eat?”
Me: “That is hilarious.”
So, I don’t feel like that. I really don’t. That is about the craziest thing I have ever heard made all the more amusing by the fact that Grace is easily half my size and has this love affair with food that is (in my life) unparalled. She’s a riot. Only a skinny person could say something like that with a straight face.
I have been knitting. I ” finished” Davin’s scarf last night. I don’t like the way it looks so I’m doing it again. No big deal. Seed stitch with cascade heathered maroon wool on 10.5 needles. Should be nice.
I want to start a “small group” of knitters/hand workers who do work for sick babies or parents of sick kids or poor kids or something. Some kind of save the world group that combines knitting or crochet or sewing (whatever the hand worker would prefer to do) and . . .saving the world. Any takers? I know that Sparrow hospital has specs for baby hats and booties (I have that already) and Shanna Brack at riverview is head of the compassion projects, so I am going to ask her if she has any good ideas of how to implement this project.
But since I don’t know how to make a bonnet yet this will have to wait. Just till next week (maybe this weekend). Shall we start there with the bonnets? We could also make hats for kids with cancer or soft blankets (like loveys) for kids at Ele’s place or something like that which would be pretty fast. What do you think?
Maybe we could get donations of single skeins from the yarn shops?
