Needs Must

I am taking a break from knitting long stockings, which is a lower-case-n-need (it hasn’t quite gotten freezing cold yet) to knit additional hand towels for my bathroom, which has become an Upper-Case-N-Need. It is suggested that when you have eczema, you should change your hand/face towel each day — your skin can be broken down in places and does not have the barrier intact which protects you from everyday little germs, and you could get an infection.

Problem is, I don’t have a week’s worth of hand towels!


So, I’m going to incorporate another Focused Effort into my 2016 plans — 12 blue(ish, in all lovely permutations) hand towels in my drawer by the end of the year (blue to identify them as bathroom towels, vs. the multicolored handknit kitchen towels!)

I’m already on my way!



I have a few more Focused Efforts planned for 2016 — stay tuned!

P.S. For Word Nerds — love this little history of needs must.

P.P.S. My favorite way of folding towels, which I learned from Jennifer Scott’s blog!
