I've been bored lately, wishing I could be spending time with people who are otherwise occupied this week, so I've been trying to stay busy. I've made 6 zipper pouches and 6 potholders so far to put away as gifts.
When I got bored with pouches and potholders, I bought a skein of loopy yarn, hoping that it would knit up into an interesting scarf, but the instructions called for a knotted scarf instead. It took about 3 minutes to make and is kind of cute, although I'm not sure who will use it.
I am, of course, still working on Morse Code. I bought a new 'App" that plays quotations for me to de-code, and I love having access to a constant supply of new material without having to bother someone to send it to me. But the App speeds are disappointing -- the slowest speed is 5 words per minute which, it turns out, is way too slow for me. (Yay!) But the next speed up is 12 words a minute which is, for sure, way too fast for me. Frustrating! But the work goes on. :)
So I have been busying myself with busy work. Hopefully my truly busy friends and family will get their more pressing tasks done soon so that I can spend some time with my Peeps again and stop trying to make happy hands out of my busy hands. :) The sun is shining, the weather is cool and pleasant, and I am ready for some fun!
