And now I'll be dreaming of yarn

It's almost midnight, and I just realized I have no post written for Monday.
So I'm going to wing it and try to knock out something at least 39% coherent before I collapse into bed and begin snoring loud enough to divert neighborhood traffic.

Lately I've been in a crocheting mood.
In the past week or so, I've made a little pillow, a bigger pillow, and am currently working on a big comfy seat cushion. I worked on it for eight hours today, which is why my hands feel like someone turned them into a big twisted wad of coat hanger wire.

It's fun because there's such a wide variety of things to make, and an even wider variety of ways to make them.

Things the world might not be able to create with yarn and a crochet hook:

1. Band-Aids
2. Ketchup packets
3. AA batteries
4. Decent coffee filters
5. Underwear for Chuck Norris
6. Affordable ink cartridges which actually work in my printer
7. A coherent blog post at midnight on a Sunday/Monday

I promise not to make one of these.

You don'r crochet underwear for Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris doen't wear underwear. I dunno about that, I just made it up. Oh, but I think he may already have one of "this".

Too bad about the ketchup packets. Think how much more comfortable they'd be.

you may not be able to crochet them, but you can make cozies for each. Grandma made me a broom handle cozy once

nonamedufus: If you ever meet Chuck Norris, be sure to ask him "Boxers or Briefs?" .... and then see if you're able to escape with your limbs intact.

PattiKen: And think of the variety of colors!

madge: It's always nice to have a cozy broom handle! :)
