Into week 4 of social distancing and working from home. It is getting a bit tiresome to be honest, I am a bit of a home body but the complete lack of any social interaction is getting tiresome. I have had s bit of time to make some stuff form wood again which is good. It is just about warm enough to actually clean the yard. And I have time to do house renovations, though money for supplies is a problem. And of course practicing being a woman in private.
But these will not fill the void so last week I got a couple of spool knitting looms and I manged to make 4 knitted infinity scarves in 5 days. So now I am good for scarves for a while and so when I had to get some supplies from the dollar store I found some knitting needles and crochet hooks for cheap. Well I tried crochet as people say it’s easy. That was a mess for me personally and it seems crochet is not my thing. Knitting seems to have worked out rather well and Sunday knit myself a cute little crossbody purse. So that worked out and now I am knitting myself a tote bag and will put the wood shop to work and add some wood handles. Then I will need to learn how to sew up a liner and I think the old linen drop sheet will work well for that as it is heavy enough and the paint splatters should add something, well that and I have it. Perhaps I will then look into tailoring some of my men’s clothes to a or feminine cut.
I hope everyone is staying safe and keeping busy. Take the time to learn or improve a skill. And remember we are all in this together.
