Another slow week, but I am slowly getting my energy back thank goodness. This being a slug is so annoying when I see things I want to get done and just don't have the energy.
A friend blessed me with two overflowing supermarket bags of beautiful Danish cotton yarn and some other yarns. I was so excited, as soon as she opened the first bag my mind was going 100 miles an hour thinking of ways to use it up. It is so soft, and straight away I thought of face wipes and out came the crochet hooks and I started working on a pattern. It crochets up so nicely. It will make beautiful trim for face washers, towels and kitchen towels too.
And then the wool is so soft, that it is perfect for fingerless gloves. I have a project I'm working on to knit up pairs of finglerless gloves for charity. They're quick and easy to knit up and I know from experience warm fingers work better, and just make you feel better.
This will be my Easter weekend project, I'm hoping to get a few pairs knitted up.
Bought baked beans to restock the pantry.
Bought mince from Costco for $9.99/kg and canned it for the pantry. There are now another 15 pints waiting to be washed and dated before adding to the shelf.
Processed a whole pumpkin into pumpkin soup and canned it for shelf stable winter soup. Hannah brought me a HUGE pumpkin! It was enormous!
Wayne cut it up for me, and I peeled it ready to can for pumpkin soup. It made 16 pints and three quarts! I'm set for pumpkin soup for the winter. Total cost $3 for the pumpkin, the potatoes and onions were from the garden, and the stock was from the freezer.
What did you make, bake, sew and grow last week?
