#Handmade - Hook case

I finally made my a hook case :-)
Just for my favorite hooks and notions so they are not scattered on my bedside table and I spend less time searching ;-)
Can you believe some of those Boyds cost as little as 29 cents?!




#Handmade - Face scrub pad



Finished pad after 36st of hdc, it's big enough at ~2"
Total pad size ~3"

I'm not good at math, but did 2 patches now and come to 18 st in round 3, not 24.
It might be me, not having enough coffee though ;-)

I just increased in my next / last row in almost every stitch and came to 36 and called it a day.

Works as well :-)

I also switched to a chain 2, instead of ch1 at the beginning of each round.

I didn't break the yarn after finishing the second patch.
Instead I put together the two patches on the wrong side, chain 1 and slip st together the two adjoining inner loops of each last stitch (see photo).

Leave enough of an opening for two fingers & finish off :-)

#Histamine journey, Back to basics

After having had the glorious idea of sipping beer from hubby last week, three days in a row, without DAO support, I'm paying the price since Saturday.
My itchy friend is back, arms and legs. But it's only little itchy pimples, not the open sores from before.
Means, I didn't do a complete overload this time.

Time to feed myself the basics again, mainly veggies that are low Histamine and oats for the morning, some Ricotta and Blueberries in the afternoon.

Yes, you can call me idiot, but I DID enjoy the beer ;-)
