I cannot have wool around my neck so I wear mock turtleneck, cotton, long sleeved shirts under all my wool sweaters.

I also have had trouble sleeping for years. I finally found a formula that works for me. I take 10mg. of Melatonin (it comes in 3mg., 5mg., and 10mg. check the label) and 1/2 tablet of Benadryl (I use generic). I only use 1/2 because I do get a dry mouth from it. I just bite the tablet in half.

I don't have SSS because I can't wait to finish them and wear them, but I tell people if they do have SSS they should knit the "second" sock first.🤣🤣🤣

I knit at Country Needleworks in Jenison which is not far from Grand Rapids. The have a large selection of yarn. They also have open knitting Wed., Thurs. and Sat. There is also Michigan Fiber Studio in Grand Rapids but a smaller store. It is in an area called Easttown where there are also some interesting restaurants like The Electric Cheetah. I would use Google for Yarn shops and Yelp or Trip Advisor for restaurants in Eastown. Good luck!

I always liked to iron! I got a tip from a saleswoman when I set up my bridal registry, "learn to iron sitting down". Best advice I ever got! Every Tuesday there was a program on TV called Bill Kennedy's Showtime. He hosted movies! So every Tuesday at 1:00 I set up the ironing board, my chair and ironed while watching a movie! It was great! Now that I'm retired I can watch movies without ironing. Not too much to iron anymore. Yea!

I bought a Della Q holder for my interchangeable needle tips and love it! It also has pockets for 5 cords and a zipper pouch for the end caps for the cords and the little "key" for tightening the tips to the cords. This holder is NOT made of the slippery material some of the other bags, holders, etc. are made of. I have found those to be a problem. This is a cotton material and holds everything nicely.

That's the reason I only knit items if someone asks for something specific which is almost never! I only knit for someone who understands what it takes to knit, in time, frustration, etc. So who do I knit for? Me!

If you have time, go to the Chihuly Glass Museum. It's near the Space Needle. If you aren't familiar with Chihuly glass, Google it and you will be blown away by what you see! I'm going to go next week.

Beautiful yarn and clever use of ironing board! Regarding a knitty knotty(have no clue how to spell it) you can make one for about $5.00 with pvc pipe. Decide the length you want. Maybe 3 ft. so you can measure yardage by the number of wraps. You can buy it at Home Depot, Lowe's, hardware store, etc. They will cut it for you and then get end caps to put on the rough ends and you're good to go!

Knit Picks CotLin yarn is 70% cotton and 30% linen. It is DK weight. I've never used it myself, but maybe other KPers have and can comment on it.

I get Acorn TV shows from the library all the time! Love it! We can also get it on our TV.
