I didn't realize this knitting obsession would need time carved out of the year to de-pill my favorite garments. I have a De-fuzz comb like this, but I find it doesn't shave off the pills, but rather grabbed and pulled ever the good stitches. I don't like it or use it.
I tried the stone, but find it is much like the above mentioned shaver. So far, the best method seems to be the cheap little rotary sweater shavers you can find in any drug store, or my little Gingher scissors (only when I am completely alert and focused. One poke or bad cut and it's all over. ) It is a rainy day activity for sure. We may get snowed in this weekend, and if so, I know what I will be doing!
I may bake some cookies too. These are one of my husband's favorites!
Peanut Butter Blossoms
1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
2 ounces (10 pkg.) Hershey Kisses or Brach’s Chocolate Stars
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
¼ c. milk
3 ½ c. flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
Mix all ingredients above except Kisses. Shape in medium size balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, place 1 kiss on each cookie.
