Handpainted Cotton Yarn (Photo credit: sumptinelse)
I’ve been off-line for a few days.
Not to be outdone by my granddaughter Hannah, I have been struggling with a crochet project involving a shawl and several skeins of yarn. So far, I have ripped it apart numerous times, and then tossed away the tangled bit from the last time I tried to rip it out. This was my second attempt at this project. Today, I will try it again. I think my problem is that I am better at dealing with computers and math problems than creative domestic things.
I don’t have a photo of my own project. All I can show would be the pile of yarn I destroyed, or the remaining skeins. So, I swiped one from Wiki. Poor me.

With weather to die for, I have managed to walk the dogs the past few days. and did a bit of reading, but yesterday, after fiddling with the yarn for hours I couldn’t see anything up close. I think I need glasses to correct my growing issues with sightedness.
I wear trifocals, the bottom segment being clear glass. But I suppose the demise of near sightedness had to catch up sooner rather than later. I have never been farsighted. The doctor told me that our eyeballs, fluid at birth, become marbled as we grow older. Thus they do not adjust as well to our attempts to “see” things near and far.
I am off now to read a few posts from blog friends. Have a good day. Dianne
PS sent a box of yarn to Hannah.
