I finally finished something. This is Blue Sky cotton and I bought it from Amy to knit two baby sweaters. It wasn't what I wanted after all, the baby sweaters were knit from Knit Picks cotton and have long since been gifted. After I got over buyer's remorse, I decided to buy another skein and make a jeans sweater. The extra skein was enough for the sweater but not enough for the neck ribbing, so I bought yet another very expensive skein. I woke up Friday morning and surprised myself by realizing that I did have enough to make one row of single crochet. I think it worked out perfectly. I made the pattern up on Sweater Wizard.
This is my leftover yarn. I could have crocheted another round, had I been so inclined. But I wanted to wear it to town and I only had time for one round. I returned the extra skein, showed off my sweater and now have store credit at Jimmy Beans. It's already burning a hole in my pocket.
I dropped an ice cube on the kitchen floor today, so I tossed it in the pets' water bowl, as much for my amusement as for Charlie's. He was lounging on the counter and was overtaken by curiosity, as I suspected he would be.
He batted it around a couple times, and then was done. His amuse-
ment was over, but mine continues.
Holed up but not complaining
