Working Wednesday

Confessions of a Fabric Addict: Working Wednesday - Taking a ... 

Snoopy and Woodstock have always been one of my favorite cartoons to read.  Do you have a favorite?

When we last 'talked',  I was getting ready to head out to pick up the Grand and go to Hobby Lobby for a little shopping therapy.  We got there and it was not what I expected.  Granted, all the employees were wearing masks but...............it was crowded and no one was practicing physical distancing other than at the registers.  Even the employees were crowding the isles while putting stock out.  That being said, the Grand and I picked up what we had come for and then left.  Walmart practices better physical distancing!  It will be a while before I go back in their store.  I can order what I want from them, online, and that will be fine with me.

I did pick up a few treasures though.

This yarn is the main reason I went.  It is Sugar Wheel Cotton and so so so soft.  I have already grabbed the bottom left skein and started working with it.

Are you able to see the color change?  It is quite subtle and I love it.  I am just doing the Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth pattern at the moment.  My hands are acting up and since I can do this in Portuguese Knitting using all purls, it is quite nice to my hands and wrists.  It will be fun to see how many dishcloths I can make out of one skein.  It is 5 oz of yarn and was on sale for $4.39/skein.  If I can get 4 cloths out of it, then it is well worth it.

Of course I had to have this too.

I have already made a pair of Rose City Rollers out of this brand of yarn.  Hubby says they are super comfy.  He loves crazy sock colors, so he will be the person to get socks out of this yarn too.  Hmmmm, I wonder if they will glow in the dark, LOL.

My biggest find was this:

A counted cross stitch kit!  It was on sale from $29.99 marked down to $7.49!  The finished dimension is 9.625 X 12.5 inches.  Not sure if I will frame and hang or maybe try and make it a wall hanging without a frame.  Our dining room and living room walls are called 'The Cross Walls".  This will go on one of those walls.    But first, I have several other stitching kits to work on. 

I made a loaf of sourdough last night.  Not a fan of how hard the outside was.  I think it cooked waaaay too long.  The inside of the loaf tastes yummy though.  My next loaf will be sourdough sandwich bread.  Will probably start on that either tomorrow or Friday.  I will continue to try making the sourdough bowl type bread but need to look at other recipes then the one I used last night. 

The overnight oats finally got made today.  They are my favorite breakfast now.  I made that while doing a load of laundry.  Hubby went to the grocery store as there were some awesome deals on steaks and chicken breasts.  Not to mention, I needed tomatoes for tonights dinner.  We are having BLTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado) sandwiches.  One of our favorite summertime meals.  Since I cook the bacon in the air fryer, I no longer dread making them.  No messy stove to clean up.  The air fryer only takes about 2 minutes to wash after it cools off.  Win, Win!

Time to get back to my dishcloth.  Hopefully it will be completed in a little while and I will start on another one.  I certainly hope my hands settle down so I can get back to the socks and shawls I have going.

Until next time.................happy crafting & stay safe!


  1. Yes, I can see the color change . I love the cotton. I will have to check out that cotton - once our stores are open. We are closed down in Maryland - in my county - still.

  2. That's really bad that they weren't practicing social distancing! I hope you and your granddaughter are okay. Were you wearing masks? It seems like people are getting complacent now that places are opening up and that is dangerous! I love that yarn especially cotton! So pretty!
    The cross will be beautiful. I hope your hands get better. Is it the AC? AC bothers my RA more than anything. It's not good for your joints. Glad your sourdough is turning out. Have you tried Farmhouse on Boon's recipes? I had no trouble with hers at all. All of them turned out and were good! Love that sock yarn too!

  3. I would be so ticked to see poorly practiced, physical distancing. I just order online. I really like that sock yarn you got your husband; gonna look that up.
