My son just turned 5 today. tested a few patterns trying to get back into the swing of things. I just wrote a dishcloth pattern today so I'm waiting for my testers to get back to me.

Clay Handles

This was my first attempt at making clay hook handles. They are still too warm to use. What do you think? I only had enough clay for 6 hooks so I did a 0, 9, 11, E, F, and G hooks. When I get some more clay I will do some more.

What I am working on

Well, I joined a group on Ravelry called "Tawashi Town". These are so neat, they are pot scrubbers of sorts. Now I am trying to design one of my own but it does not seem to be working out the way it looked in my mind. I will keep plugging away on it and will let you know the outcome.

I really am beginning to dislike teen age boys. Rodney(15) has had a rotten disposition this week. Monday I fixed Cheeseburger Pie, what did he do? Yuck I don't like cheeseburger pie, I thought we were having Spaghetti Pie. Tuesday I fixed Spaghetti Pie, what did he do? It just looks like spaghetti, I don't want it. He did eat some of it about 9 pm. Tuesday I had also bought he some boxers because he said he needed some, which he did. Wednesday morning after his shower, what did he do? They don't have a button on them. I finally came unglued and told him that beggars could not be choosers! Oh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! teenage boys!
