Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is to procrastinate. Nobody does it better than us. In an archive deep dive, here’s The Kay Gardiner SermonetteTM on how to accomplish a lot by accomplishing nothing:
One of the (many) (unintentionally completed) projects you write about is this washcloth, Cindy Taylor’s Reverse Bloom Flower Washcloth, here rendered in Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, which is surely the highest and best use of cotton chenille yarn.
I share this as a reminder that we haven’t talked about knitted washcloths in a while, and it’s about time we did.
There is no better use for cotton chenille yarn than a knitted washcloth. In fact, it may be the only decent use for cotton chenille yarn. I still haven’t recovered from that chenille cardigan I made for you, and that was twelve years ago. A cotton chenille washcloth is brilliant. This one is great because you can kind of wrap the flaps around your face and just moodge it all at once.
Wishing all a weekend of productive procrastination. And hey—tomorrow night’s the Super Bowl of knitting, the Oscars. I couldn’t be less engaged this year, but I’ll tune in anyway. I mean: I can’t shake the image of Leonardo di Caprio fighting a bear in the mud. I don’t even know what a revenant is. It sounds like a Dodge automobile from 1964.
