Pills v dishcloths.

As you know, I chose to do my plot loss by knitting non-stop dishcloths rather than take medication which, incidentally, is now reported to be not effective as was thought.

Recently, I have been able to sell some of my dishcloths at a tea shop and they take 20% commission. Last week, one of the biddies asked me for three cloths which she paid a fiver for and I went to the tea shop to check the stock and, while I was there, I picked up £25 (less £5 commission).

So I am £25 better off this week than I would have been on Prozac!

Very well done - dish clothes very rarely have unwanted side effects!

Well done - and you're helping to save the planet - as well as not polluting the water system with urinated drugs! :-D :-D :-D

I knit jute scouring pads as well. £3 a throw or two for a fiver. They have not gone on the display yet but the man in the café has one.
