She ain’t pretty, but she works

Morning all. Am hiding in the air conditioning again today. Another pain day from hell, and it’s normal.

The last thing I made was a sweater. I have lots of that crazy blanket yarn that isn’t good for anything in my stash. I also have an assortment of crochet hooks. When I am watching an ad, or even youtube, I like to stitch while I wait.

I grabbed this yarn, the 4 largest hook I own, and started playing. The macrame stuff worked pretty good for what I needed it for, so I thought what the heck. I started with a round, and then decided to see if I could make a pouch. Holy crap! It worked well. So, once it got big enough for my personal blender cup, I stopped. I then made a lid for it.

I have a mug that a flower arrangement came in, and that helps to steady my coffee while it is in the sweater. It even fits one of my larger glasses. So, an odd, unshapen ugly yarn sweater for my iced coffee has been born. She lives in a santa mug with the words believe on it.

I’d take a picture, but the desk is so damned messy, I better not right now. Other than that, not much is going on. My hands are still throbbing, and I am hoping that I don’t have to mow again any time soon.

Hugs, my friends, huge ones. -L

This showed up during the week.
