Remember this stitch?
It's called "Wool-Eater" - find Sarah London's patterns (here).
I have an old cast iron bench handed down from my parents that my Dad covered with a white vinyl fabric. I like his cover but my butt sticks to it. Several years ago I sewed a cover out of a white towel to place over the vinyl. That cover is wearing out and I've been dreaming about a crocheted cover for it. When I found this stitch in an oblong pattern I knew this was the one to cover my bench perfectly.
Our Master Bath is decorated in blue and white and I just happened to have a huge skein of Lily's Sugar n' Cream cotton yarn in those colors.
The width is fine...now I have to make the length longer and then add a skirt.
We arrived home from our Disney World trip yesterday evening...24 days away from home with 18 nights spent at WDW. What a wonderful vacation.
Yeah...even retirees need a "vacation".
The good news is I didn't gain any weight while on our trip...the bad news is I didn't lose any either. Being sick for half of the time meant I wasn't as active as I would have been...so we didn't walk as much as I would have liked.
I decided to start exercising more frequently so today I walked a brisk 1.1 miles around our neighborhood...we even have some slight hills. Hope I can keep it up. Today is beautiful...sunny and cool just perfect conditions for walking.
Thanks for visiting me!
