*Loveknitting.com sent me their Paintbox chunky yarn collection to try. The yarns are 100% acrylic. ( I see more Twiddle Mitts Do you?) The yarn is very soft. It is nothing like the acrylics of the 1990s. I know this because I have a thing or two I crocheted for my kids when they were born. One was a baby bunting, which thankfully was worn by Zach in winter with many layers between him and the scratchy stuff.
*Speaking of Twiddle Mitts, dear Debbie sent me two more for the Chicago Nursing home that asked for 30 mitts. I am almost there, just 3 more to go. One is on my needles now with the Paintbox colors .
Debbie has a knack for these mitts. Just look at the colors, and twiddles . Sadly, I think it is because her father (daddio she calls him) also has memory issues. I also think, she is wildly creative. She sent me some of her luscious soap with the mitts. Some more of you are working on mitts and it just makes my world seem beautiful. Thanks. Thanks.. Thanks.*Finally, something great was announced yesterday. I Know I’m’ all baseball World Champion Chicago Cub blah blah at you, but listen; The Cubs decided to give Steve Bartman a World Series ring. He was a great fan who reached for a ball many seasons ago , and caught it. Some argued he got in the way of the play. The game was a post Season one and the Cubs went on to lose that game in a big way. This poor guy was all but lynched and it was not in a very Loveable Loser fan way. It was awful. Ugly. Sad.
But the Cubs decided to right that wrong yesterday.
When I read this announcement yesterday I felt the world, on its crazy axle, just righted itself a bit. Now That’s Cub.
