I skipped Sunday chores today due to a work meeting that started on Friday night, went all through Saturday and finished today around noon.
I came home disinclined to do anything much.
I made a cup of tea, put in a DVD, plunked myself down in front of the television and commenced knitting.
Sigh. Something about knitting--the repetition, the color, the tactile sensation--is amazingly restorative.
An hour later, I’d made a coaster out of some old yarn and one of those junk-mail CDs that arrive without invitation in my mailbox.
I had been wondering what kind of sustainable craft-type thing I could do with old CDs, and I found the CD coaster idea on the Frugalhaus knitting website.
The picture above shows my first attempt at a CD coaster—a bit too thick and fuzzy (more like a trivet than a coaster!), so I’ll have another go with lighter-weight yarn. And another cup of tea. And another DVD.
