Knitting, Dogs and More: Filler, Bills, Newsletters, Getting over a COLD!

Filler, Bills, Newsletters, Getting over a COLD!

Knitting a gazillion fuzzy feet has done nothing for my tension issues. I was playing with filler stitches and whilee I thought my purl stitches were looser than my knit stitches I think the opposite is actually true, or I overcompensated for that..... Anyway, I like seed stitch, but I'm going to use either Moss or Sand. Sand is on the bottom, Moss is at the top. Sand hides the tension issues better so I may go with that.

Today I need to get some bills paid, finish printing our "Holiday Newsletter" (Okay, I heard all the groans out there) We try to make ours lighthearted and it's NEVER more than a page. Maddy even has an advice column and every year I chronicle Sparky and Bentley's adventures as "employees" of Santa. Sparky has even tried out for the reindeer team a few times!

Esther has a cold and I'm feeling like I'm gonna get it. I'm going to up the Vitamin C, we are having soup and a nap is a must today!

I did think of a question....How old is too old? I got some Germantown on EBay. The labels say 4 oz so I know it's older. How old is too old for wool yarn?

Take care all!

I don't think there's an expiration date for wool! As long as it's clean, odor- and moth-free, it should be usable.

Hi Tori!

I agree, if it isn't mothy, it's usable. Even if it's dusty, you can clean it gently.

Have you ever tried Airborne for a cold? I haven't but heard it works. I personally take Oscillococinum (spelling?) which you can find pretty easily now. They say it's for flu, but it's worked for cold for me. Hope you and Esther are feeling fine.
