Knitting Earth and Sky is Enjoyable

I'm making really good headway with Earth and Sky, this afghan is moving along much faster than the last several I've done because it's just straight forward knitting, which I'm rather enjoying.  I'm not piecing things together or dealing as much with how much yarn I have of this or that color...which is often a thing for me.  It is here, but less so.  Currently am at 36 inches with about 12 inches left according to my striping.  That would make it 48 inches...but, am not sure I'm going to feel like that's large enough (48 x 60), so might need to add something else to each end, pick up stitches on the one side...jury's out on that, but am indeed enjoying these colors together.


This made me laugh.  I don't have any respect for this man, so seeing him as a toilet bowl cleaner somehow seemed appropriate.  I've never in all my 68 years felt that way.  He is not normal.  


I've made some headway with my de-clutter calendar.  I'm not going in any order though and the 3 check marks are things I've done mostly related to emptying out our entertainment center in order to get rid of it.  The 2 X's are things that don't pertain to our household, as we have no toys since there are no kids at home and no grandkids.  Written in red are things I've added to replace to the 2 X's.


Spotted this awhile back on Facebook and saved it, partially for a reminder.  I had, or maybe still have in the basement Mason Jars, and thought I'd give this a try.  Except I don't like drinking through straws...so thought I'd share as a way to re-purpose and or recycle in case any of you do.

  1. The afghan is very pretty. The finished size will be perfect for a nice sofa throw. So onteresting to know about the parmesan cheese lids.

    1. Thanks for your thoughts about the size, that's reassuring. I'm one who needs to see things. Should have measured 60 x 48 out on the rug, then I would have known. Just now thought about that....dahhhhhhhh. Let me know if you try the Mason Jar thing.

  4. I hate that face on that toilet bowl cleaner. I have a little trump troll doll and don't know what to do with it to maximize its therapeutic value for me. Cleaning my toilet isn't quite enough.

    Be well, Sandy.

    1. Exactly...when you don't have to pay much attention or count, it is very relaxing to just knit. Glad you enjoyed the chuckle.

  10. That stripe pattern is great. I'm not sure how big it is without seeing it next to something. I'm sure you know how big it needs to be.

    A toilet bowl cleaner is perfect, but I can't stand the face anymore. I just can't look at it. Or his voice. Or his words. I'll stop now.
