A lazy day

This week feels like a success. I have worked, I have managed to do some cleaning and house tending on free days without doing too much. It's really easy to do too much on a good day, and so make the next day a very tired one... I am trying to get into some new routines, trying to get things done during the week so I can have the week-end off. A tidy house that I can relax in. Managed pretty good this time, so today has actually been a crochet day. It's been a while since I did this. More knitting than crochet  lately. 

There you have it. The result of a lazy Saturday. So far at least, I am counting on finishing the last piece too. I am making dishcloths today. I made one in linen a while ago, just to try it out, and I am loving it! So I decided to make some more. One in the rest of the linen skein, and then some in some left over bamboo/cotton yarn. Eager to see if they will work outjuat as well. Planning tomake some in cotton too. I honestly never thought a home made cloth would work out as well as it did, and it gets better the more I use it. It absorbs water and other messy stuff on the kitchen table perfectly, it is lovely to scrub table and work spaces with, and it fells much more environment friendly to have your own cloth that you boil clean every now and then, than buying new ones all the time when the old gets too dirty.

The book is for later. Did you notice the title? "A stitch in crime"... I just had to have it, it's about a crochet group solving mysteries! :) I hope it is entertaining, since there are more where I found this baby. Now I better finish this dish cloth, or I'll never get to read that book. See you all soon, I hope!
