WooHoo! I got to go meet some friends for knitting this morning. One of them said "I look forward to this all week. If I have to work on a Wednesday, I'm so bummed." Yep! Yep! I know! I get to just sit there and knit and listen and talk. I love it!
I finished this soap last night and thought "Oh no, I need a project for knitting with friends" (Carrie, we need a name for our little group). So, when I got there I casted on another soap for my shop. This pink and brown one is for me, though. I'm not sure if the pink is wool, or wool ease (which won't felt) So, I will use it and see if it felts and if it does I'll be able to use the pink for soaps that are for sale.
The last close up pic is of a soap that I knitted that we've been using. It's all felty and the soap lasts forever! My kids wash their hands more, too, because it's cool soap. See, no more stitches.
Speaking of kids, when your 8 yr. old asks you to wind up her knotted, tangled, white, fuzzy acrylic yarn; don't wear black jeans and a black sweatshirt when you do it. I tried to take a picture of my white fuzziness, but it just wouldn't show it well enough.
I also finished the baby genius burp cloths. They are so cute, but I hope the new mommy uses them, and loves them! I also hope the hats aren't too small. Hopefully she'll get to wear them for a while, and hopefully she'll love her blankie.
Here's what I'll be starting tomorrow, though. I picked this pattern, and I'll be using my latest hand-dyed wool. Looking at the pictures of it when it was a tangles mess, it should be called swamp thing. LOL.
I'll talk about the UFO along, too, because I have chosen what the first finished UFO of February will be. Tomorrow I'll share all. (You know tomorrow means next time I find time to post, right?) hehe
So, do you ever have problems with your paragraphs not having spaces between them when you post? As I type, there are spaces, when I preview, no spaces. That's what's up with the colorful paragraphs. I can't seem to think of another way to separate them.
Well, I guess I'd better think of things other than yarn and knitting for a little bit, then I have to go get the kids. We're going to the post office to mail out squares for the blanket that I spoke of earlier. Maybe I'll get some yarn in the mail. Wouldn't that be cool? As if I ever think of anything but yarn! Hahaha!
**Well, looks like my paragraphs sorted themselves out this time. hehe**
We are not in the fires....
