In Which the Pirate Cleans Up.
Michael has had this patriotic Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn sitting on his windowsill for… well, for a while. He’d thought he might learn how to crochet, but that didn’t really happen, so on Sunday while we were watching the football games I made a new washcloth, using my own Scrubbing Nubbles pattern (which is free on Ravelry, if you want to make a washcloth too). Now his living room is a little bit neater.
And so’s his closet, because he gave me some other yarn that’s been languishing for probably a decade – two skeins each of yellow and white Baby Ull (at least, that’s what I remember it being – the ball bands are long gone) and four balls of Baby Cashmerino in navy blue. I happily brought this home and re-wound it on the ball winder, since it had all been wrapped up around cardboard tubes.
Unfortunately the Baby Ull had quite a few broken strands on the outside of each ball, but I was able to salvage most of it. I didn’t see any signs of bugs anywhere, so the damage is probably quite old, and I’m not going to worry about it. The Cashmerino is totally fine! I’m considering using it all together to make something like the Barndom shawl. Of course, that’s just a thought, and thoughts change as time passes… who knows what this might become!
