I was asked what the pattern was for the dishcloths that I’ve been making. It’s a free pattern, so I will go ahead and share it with you here as I don’t think I’ll be stepping on any toes. I used size 7 needles, but that can be adjusted depending on how loose you want the stitches. I also used Hobby Lobby’s “I Love This Cotton” yarn. It is soft and it stays soft after using it and wears well.

I received a package in the mail from Sherri in Las Vegas. She makes mittens for me to donate every year and she made this ornament that is very appropriate for this year!
It’s a roll of TP! How much more realistic for 2020 can you get? Thank you Sherri! It sure made me smile.

Four more pair of mittens done.
I had a nasty migraine today. I get what are called octicular migraines where I see flashing lights, sort of in a zigzag line like those old kaleidoscopes we played with as kids. Then I lose my eyesight entirely for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. Today it was about 35 minutes. After that comes the headache. I’ve been struggling with the headache off and on all day. I had just gone to Nita’s house to pick up our mail. Something didn’t seem quite right, so I went straight back home. Within five minutes of getting home the jagged lights started. I’m so grateful I wasn’t driving. It’s been quite a while since I had one of these headaches. I think it’s been at least a year.
I did wear the Bluetooth headband to sleep last night and I slept for 8 1/2 hours! I haven’t done that since I don’t know when. I really don’t think that it had anything to do with the migraine. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme nor reason as to why I get them. I used the headband as an eye shade and and I listened to rain and waves all night. It was wonderful. I’ll try it again tonight and I’ll let you know how it goes and the details about it.
I hope you all have a lovely Friday and feel calm, relaxed and in the spirit of the Christmas holiday.
