It's not easy. It definitely takes a mental toll. Simple things like going to the grocery store now take on much greater significance. I actually insisted that I was the one going to Costco because I needed to get out of the house and have some alone time.
I do believe it's important in times like this to find joy, and crafting has always brought me joy. Like a good crafter I have a stash. It should, hopefully, last through this period in time.
This week's video is about cleaning and sanitizing your knitting tools. I focused on knitting needles, but the information I share can be applied to any surface made of similar materials.
Cleaning my knitting needles has never been something I thought a whole lot about, but it's good to know how to properly clean and disinfect any surface.
The information I share is what I have learned on the internets. And below are links to helpful resources I found.
Hang in there. This will end.
