My daughter showed up at our country home sporting an ear warmer which I soon learned is all the rage at university. Soon we were looking at patterns online, I crocheted one in 40 minutes, using chunky wool and a huge crochet hook, then simply wrapped wool around to pinch it in on one side. I actually managed to take a picture with a phone and emailed it to myself. Ta-da !..I am now officially a 21st century woman.
These ear warmers are quick to whip up and cheap, great for Christmas because they are all the rage. I know it is shocking, but it seems that I am IN STYLE! This definitely ranks as a small success .
The same basic combination of stitches with stiff cotton for hand or dish towels, fuzzy wool for an afghan, trimmed in a chocolate-brown ruffle, soft, baby wool for an unborn grandson and wedding shawls from early 2013. These photos display a successful use of time spent in the passenger side of the car, waiting for appointments or in the hospital.
Waiting in productive silence for the Christ Child with my convalescing husband . This is another small success
