So I’m packing up my knitting bag for tomorrow trying to decide what projects I should be taking. DH has to go to work early tomorrow, so I have to catch the early bus, which is just fine as the weather looks like it may be ugly. I just hope the storms hold off until I get on my way. I already sent my wheel and clothes last week, so I don’t have to worry about that… did I mention I’m the world’s worse traveler?
I did finish the slippers.
I had a question about what I was using on the backs to make them non-slippery. It’s Saf-T-Bak, rug backing that is available at craft stores. I found it at Michaels in the rug hooking section. It’s extremely easy to apply with a little sponge brush. I used a newspaper to lay them out on and also put on an a pair of gloves, as I always manage to get some on myself. Anyway, two coats and you should be good. Let them dry 24 hours between. You also can wash them after they cure in 2 weeks.
I also finished the tea towels.
And finally along with those the dishcloths went into her package with these lovely goodies. My Mom is a total coffee fanatic, so she will love these.
Well wish me luck that I have a safe an uneventful trip tomorrow. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
