Some Yarn Projects for the Charity Pile

Here is the much delayed picture of the gold bag
Crocheted of an acrylic/polyester blend of Rug/Craft Yarn from a donation bag

and here are a trio of hats knitted on peg looms
all are acrylic yarns, a single skein each
any pattern is just how it happened
I did not plan nor stripe

They will be going to a charity Craft table somewhere

This is the last week of Summer.
School begins Monday, a week from today, not that I am in great anticipation. Even when I was a kid, I thought that the best weather of the year, and the time when the garden and Grandma doing canning would need me, I had to go sit in a room with a bunch of other kids and try to make nice.

So what job do I have now?
Teaching Assistant Substitute. In the public school system!
the last couple years, I get called soon as the doors open and a principal realizes there are students who need somebody with them and nobody who was interviewed and hired has cleared the background check yet.

So we’ll see.
I would like to work early on a few days, to earn enough for going to Women’s Retreat. Husband says he is glad for me to go be with my friends, but I like thinking that I did pay my own way for it.

I want to get back to my hook and thread. A couple kids got baptized last Sunday, and I have a new crochet cross pattern I’m trying out. It uses size 10 thread (rather than smaller size 30 which my hands cannot hold and work with anymore) so I think I might be able to carry on until the fasten off time.

    Oh,YAY-FINALLY a post!!! hehehe (I KNOW you’re on FB, but other people don’t get to see your lovely comments here!) Nice to see your craft-work; very nice projects. That gold bag looks like it could hold at least 5 lb. of potatoes, if not more!

    The long awaited gold bag is special. Something that anyone would be proud to carry to the market or even to a social gathering.

    So it is back to school for you now. I used to love this time of year. The excitement of meeting new friends and reuniting with old ones to share the next few months. It is also good to be reading you again–missed you!
