You know, I am going to have to sit down and just knit myself up some dishcloths because when it comes to needing a new one I keep going to the stash I made for one of my sisters! I am being a bad knitter because of this, you know.
So, today I am setting a goal for myself of making up at least three dishcloths for myself this week and putting them in the kitchen for me to use so as to leave my sister’s dishcloths alone! I am determined!
The preemie cap from sock yarn is finished, almost. I still have to sew it up. It is amazing how small it is. The next hat project is going to be a newborn cap. It is something I should be working on, especially for one of the local hospitals and for my Church – there are suddenly a lot of pregnant women who will be delivering babies very soon. It would be wonderful to give them something for their babies. Besides, one should never let the plethora of knitting projects deplete. There should always be projects out there to do.
One of the said newer projects is one I am going to be knitting for myself: socks. However, I am not going to be making them out of sock yarn, but out of worsted weight yarn for those really cold winter days for when I have to get out. My boots are warm, but it would be nice to have something going up the remainder of my leg underneath my skirts.
Yes, I am one of those crazy people who wear skirts even on the coldest of winter days. There is a reason, however: Since I am in a wheelchair for a good portion of the time, it is much easier to wear skirts than pants, and, to be quite honest, I find pants to be far colder than skirts! Maybe it is the heat my legs generate beneath the skirts. I also want to knit myself a good winter skirt. The first one I have in my head is quite plain, and then I’d like to do an “over-skirt” like was worn in the 1920’s in the winter. This is mostly inspired from watching the TV movie Coco Chanel. Plus, I just love vintage fashion. Sometimes I wonder if my fashion sense is anything “modern” at all.
There is also a small purse I’d like to make for myself. I need a small “shopping purse” to use when I am out and about this winter when all I really need to take with me is wallet and keys (and a small notebook of course).
Plus, all of the Christmas presents I need to settle myself down to making. This is all very important, you know. It is already mid-September.
DH and I didn’t make it to Georgetown to Stone’s Throw either this weekend because of the gas price hike that happened.
