The boys' Mom made them wash cloths from a yarn she discovered
just for that purpose.
(There is a place for polyester, sometimes!)
After I went to the eye dr yesterday,
I ran some errands as long as I was in town.
I picked up some of the yarn to give it a try.
(WalMart price here was $3.98 a skein-
there is only 78 yards in a skein
but it looks like I can get two cloths from each skein.)
It isn't too awful on your hands while knitting and I know that after use,
it gets even softer but with teeth to make a great washcloth!
I knit up a simple garter diamond one.
The second one is on the needles!
Speaking of discovery-this lily is a complete surprise to us. It has never bloomed before but the 12" of rain we have been blessed with this last month must have awakened it!
It is stunning! And there are two blooms-very large blooms; the plant stands just over 2' tall and the blooms are the size of salad plates! Incredible!
(No aroma, unfortunately!)
