Summertime, and the living is…. easy??

Imagine the last week of school, things are crazy, but you think to yourself – ‘Next week, I’m on holidays. What am I going to do? I might be bored all summer!’

That thought, was, obviously, the kiss of death. I haven’t posted yet this summer because I have been in a state of manic activity for the last four weeks. Since school let out, I’ve had my parents to stay for a week (which was lovely – I was just a bit too tired to enjoy it properly!) and run a church service all by myself, we’ve cleaned the house up considerably, put it on the market, I’ve gone to see about 20 properties that might be suitable to buy, been to Stratford to see Patrick Stewart in The Tempest (set in 1950s Antarctica – very cool), and crocheted approximately 9 scarves, a wrap (here’s the photo of me in it…) and a shrug. Plus keeping the house incessantly tidy in case someone wants to come around a view it at 20 minutes notice.

And I’ve just noticed that I’ve lost the ability to type properly. Hope there’s not too many spelling mistakes here…

So, I decided to have a bit of a wander ’round the web this morning (no, I haven’t actually managed to get dressed yet…) because I’m feeling rather wiped out, but also because I’m looking for a blog that contains a crochet pattern that I found but failed miserably to bookmark two weeks ago… Anyway, I found another Quizilla quiz that looked appropriate for my current activities – What kind of yarn are you?

Can I mention at this point that although I have done many of these, I can usually see the point they are trying to make. I have never felt actually insulted by the result before. Until now. Because, I am:

What kind of yarn are you?

You are Dishcloth Cotton.You are a very hard worker, most at home when you’re at home. You are thrifty and seemingly born to clean. You are considered to be a Plain Jane, but you are too practical to notice.
Take this quiz!

Dishcloth cotton?? Born to clean?? PLAIN JANE??

(Maybe I’m not taking this in the spirit in which it’s meant…)


Funny thing is, I’m actually looking for some dishcloth cotton – those of you who haven’t tried a crocheted dishcloth don’t know what you’re missing – absorbent and scrubby – but no one in the UK seems to sell colours other than white and off white. I want a red dishcloth! or pink! Green! Yellow! My purple ones are getting haggard-looking… How do I replace them??

OK, maybe the Quizilla thingy was right… 🙂

  1. I am Mohair … nice I thought at first … fuzzy and warm … not too overbearing … I am also unyeilding and stuck in my own positions … I am not so sure on that part!

    P.S want me to send you some red crochette (sp?) thread? I can pick some up at The BAy or Zellers I am sure … let me know … luv ya both

  2. LOL – Thanks for the offer, but if I get any more yarn, I will absolutely NOT get any school work done, and I have lots to do in the next two weeks!!

    Love you too!

  3. You can knit Richard his own Clanger

    or how ’bout knit him his own Dr Who scarf? and also

    just in case you do happen to get bored! 🙂 I am totally jealous, i wish I knew how to knit. I’m not really the Domestic Goddess that you are. Dangit.

    Right, I have housework to do now. Honest.

  4. Domestic goddess?? Man, I have been so stressed out over keeping the house clean and tidy for the last 2 weeks… I would much rather decend into it’s normal state of general squalor; but people like to view a CLEAN house for some reason… 🙁

    Oh – and I’d make Richard a Dr Who scarf… but he’s already got one!! 🙂 Courtesy of a church jumble sale, I think…

  5. Nope, was a school fete the last year or so I was at my primary school. Rather worryingly that makes it over twenty years old…
