hats hats hats

Sometimes watching TV can be rewarding.
As long as your hands are busy funny things happen.

Your stock grows.... and grows.....and grows.
Before you know it, bureaus get full of your own made stuff
and one day they will make great personal gifts.

The little green yellow and off white hat was already nationalized by my son
He loves it lol It is done with both knitting and crocheting.
but I have to finish the scarf that goes with it. It needs a few more rows to get the length I want.
It is also green but I cannot find the right shade of green for it, so it is WAY behind schedule.

I do these projects with left over thread But then, like with the green hat, I will have again a lot of left over thread from another roll I need to buy to finish the scarf It will be enough to make another hat and scarf set with .
And so it goes.......

You certainly get a great deal accomplished while watching TV. I try to do other things while the TV is on, but I often don't make great progress.

Jeannette: I always remember my Grammas' words when she said to keep your hands always busy.
So I do and I find her words to be very rewarding in many ways.:)

When your hands are busy, so is your mind and this helps I guess not to get alzheimers lol My Gramma's Mind was very sharp till she died.My Other Gramma had no hobbies and she prayed a lot. She would stand in the corner and pray and pray and pray. She got alzheimers.I guess she would forget she already prayed and would pray again lol
Life is funny.

I find when people give up on life and have nothing to do, they age faster.
