A very unpretentious little knitted bath mitt made from cotton that should be organic, but sadly, is just regular kitchen cotton. It turned out a little smaller than I expected, so I decided to crochet the bottom to make it a little longer. With each stitch I realized the futility of it all--I am not a bath mitt person. I've always thought of bath mitts as being rather unhygienic. Slough off the detritus of the day, wring out the little slougher, let it and all the little creatures on it live to see another day. Ahem!
I was going to write a big long post about how some friendships (like useless bath mitts) we work so hard to save and for what? But then I decided that this here blog is my happy place, and so I wrote that post in my head and not for all the world to see.
Instead, I leave you with a quote from George Washington: Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
Have a good weekend.
*If you are a bath mitt person don't hate me. I'm not judging you, really!!!
