G'day everyone!
July 22, 2017 at 1:00:08 AM
I live permanently on the road in a Matilda Bradstreet motorhome with my beloved spouse. He has given up complaining about the amount of wools and cottons I have stashed. I tend to knit and crochet dishcloths and face cloths as thank-you gifts and for raffle prizes, I make hats for friends and their children and sometimes I even manage to make clothing for myself.  We don't like the cold so we tend to stay in tropical areas in Winter. I really need to check out the cotton blends for tee-shirts etc.

Look at that smile! (Photo guaranteed unretouched)

Welcome! Smile

How do you like life on the road? It must be wonderful to be able to choose where you want to be based on climate! Blurgh, I don't blame you for not liking the cold. I don't like cold or heat...prefer it in between!

I'm so glad your husband has accepted your stash! Stash is soooooo important. (My husband still doesn't understand mine. Sigh.)

Oooh, I love dishcloths! We started using dishcloths when I first started making them and haven't gone back to sponges since. There's simply no good way to clean a sponge! At least dishcloths can be thrown into the wash, where you know they're definitely clean. Smile

Cotton blends are a great idea for warmer areas...I can definitely see knitting or crocheting t-shirts with them!

Please do tell about what you're making now!
