Well, I bought some cotton yarn last night when I ran back in to Walmart to buy diapers that my husband forgot, lol. I have half a basketweave coaster in red acrylic and almost half a Grandma's washcloth in white cotton, now (the one that starts from a corner and uses yarn-over to make it wider each row, a new stitch for me
!), as well as 75% of the pink scarf that my little girls are desperate for me to finish, but I want it to be long enough to wrap around their necks without falling off. (It's about 24" long right now; that's the first thing I started. I intended it as a swatch, but it was about 7" wide, so I just kept going.) At least I did some today.
Thanks for the encouragement. I'm really really tired or I'd thank you all individually.
