Stash Enhancement...

I went Saturday and helped mom pack boxes. With my banged-up knee that's all I could do. Tape the boxes and fill the boxes, I had to have my brothers move them out of the way. Boy did I feel useless!!! Tomorrow will be just as bad. I have to go back out and help again. At least I can watch my nephew and keep him out of the way. So I guess it won't be so bad.

I had another doctor's appointment today. I'm getting tired of seeing doctors. I wish they had a clue. The only bright spot in my day so far is a trip to the yarn shop!!! If that doesn't cheer me up, nothing will! I bought two fiber trends patterns. "Felt Hats II" and "felt clogs". I have been working on hats so much
lately, I thought I would take a break and make something else. I only get to work on "mom's sweater" and "the beast" in the evening. You know, when the laundry is done for the day and everyone is feed and dishes are done and ect. The brief (and sometimes) relaxing time you get (maybe an hour) before you go to bed. The rest of my time is spent on housework and hats.
I have made a few narrow brimmed hats for the hat drive and wanted a couple wide brimmed for me. (They are quick, easy and fun to make) I really love the instant gratification factor. I even found some wool I think I may be able to use. In the past I have not been able to use wool. I would itch and break out into a rash. Someone suggested it may be a sensitivity rather than an allergy (to the way it's processed) so I played with some wool for a while. NO RASH, A lot of itching but no rash. So I bought some "Lamb's Pride" 85% wool/ 15% mohair. I bought Black and Dynamic Blue. I'll let you know what happens. I wonder if it will soften and get less itchy after it's washed and felted? I thought I could knit a band to go on the inside of the hat if itching is a problem. The clogs I'm nowhere near ready to start yet. It was something I saw on someone else's blog and thought they were neat and just had to have it. I always impulse buy when it come to knitting. Maybe I will have the courage to try them in a few weeks. We'll see. Catch you later.

So what is wrong with your knee? I might have missed you talking about it. Whatever it is I hope it feels better!
