Surviving Another Nasty Day & My Mandoline

More chemo caps on the way.

More chemo caps on the way.

Today rated up there around 10 on the nasty day scale.  Grey, rainy, windy and cold.

So we went to Hobby Lobby.  Ron indulged me as I meandered around in there for a really long time.

I got some more of my favorite yarn — Hobby Lobby’s own *I Love This Yarn* brand.  Soft, silky and feels so good against my skin.  So now I can make some pretty caps.  I also got a chemo hat pattern book for ideas to keep me from getting bored.

My basic, efficient julienne mandoline.

I’ve had a couple of people ask me what type of mandoline I used to make my zucchini pasta in the previous post.  I’ve tried several ways. The most unsatisfactory was the hand held peeler style julienne strip maker.

The very best is one that is simple, non-adjustable and sturdy.  It works quickly and cleanly.  I think Amazon calls them Japanese vegetable mandolines.
