Last weekend I picked up some food grade diatomaceous earth to help get rid of the creepy crawlies we’ve got roaming the house.
Ants in the kitchen, around the back doors and A/C unit – Going down!
Fleas on the cats. Loki is allergic and will bite his nether region bald. He’s been doing pretty good the last few months so I decided to dust him and Lilith before the fleas get too bothersome. I will let you know how that goes.
Spent some time updating blog backgrounds and playing with font colors. Something a bit more summery
I took a break from hex this week and made a “spa” towel. Its rather small but perfect for patting my face dry after a workout.
The stitch is simple, ch 35, then ch 1, sc, dc, sc across. Rinse & repeat until you get to the desired length or you run out of yarn.
I used two skeins of Sugar & Cream cotton. As you can see there was a slight difference in dye lots between the two but as its just for me – I don’t care.
I have safety cone orange that I was going create the same for D but will be making a couple (I hope) placemats with the same stitch instead. I have another green cotton (similar to the hot green above) and a blue/white mix that I may do other placemats in. Nothing will match but at least the table will be happier.
