5 New Things

1. I now have two asthma inhalers. One is for maintenance, one is for acute attacks–a rescue. I use a spacer because I am inhaler-challenged. Here’s to better breathing in the weeks to come.

2. I have a new phone. Isn’t it nifty?

3.I finished the Feather and Fan Cardigan. I’m not sure what to do about it. It’s way too big. I wonder if I can shrink the hell out of it in a hot water wash. Any other suggestions?

4. I made the boys zippered coin purses. Isaac needs something for his library card and pocket change. E2 needs one because I-6 has one. It was the first sewing I’ve done since I retired from sewing back in April of last year. It wasn’t all that bad and I actually considered sewing the kids’ Halloween costumes this year. Then I came to my senses and repacked all my sewing regalia and stuffed it back in the closet.

5. The first Wollmeise Sock club shipment arrived today. I now understand what the big deal about Wollmeise is. The yarn is exquisite. The colors are absolutely breathtaking. And the Wollmeise herself is personable and sweet. If heaven were a sock yarn, it would be Wollmeise. (Click through for the photo.)

  1. Those are really pretty sock colors! I’m sorry about the sweater. That’s the story of my life. If you try to shrink it, it would probably get shorter and wider. :( That’s just how it goes.

  2. ACK! There was a Wollmeise sign up – LIMITED TIME ONLY – and YOU DIDN’T TELL ME!!!!!

    Sigh. I probably wouldn’t have made it through the lottery anyway….

  3. Inhalers and coin purses, phone and sweater! We’ve got to hang out more. I am way behind. The sweater photo looked good even though it was too big. See you soon.

  4. Spacers… I know they help, I know they deliver more of the good stuff – but I just can’t use them.

    LOVE the coin purses!
