have been watching too much TV late at night due to stress issues and sleepless-ness .... so for the last few months i've been having lots of "small projects" (that i also carry around for odd minutes here and there waiting for a bus or in a waiting room for an appointment .....), namely some washcloths (after being offered2 hand kitted one by an american visitor last spring), some knitted and some crocheted ..... now .... i haven't yet followed up with my New Year's...
