As I mentioned yesterday, I felt like crap for much of next week, which means (in my world) that when I didn't have to work or be anywhere in particular, I sat on the couch and watched Gilmore Girls. After several episodes, though, I realized that I was sick of just sitting and watching, so I decided I needed a project I could do while I learned proper bantering techniques. This is, of course, the precise moment for which I began this project: "Looking for a project? Well, here, pick one of these."
Except I picked three. But one of them isn't finished yet, so that'll be done next week.
28. Magazine Gift Bow.
Okay, so I didn't have any magazines sitting around, but I did have the local town's weekly newspaper, so I made one with that. I liked that so much I made a couple more. Stay tuned a few more days to see the other ones!
57. "Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth Pattern" - I had one I had been using that I thought was perfect. Then I tried this one and I am never going back! The old pattern required mostly purling - there is no purling in this pattern! Huzzah!
Okay, so I didn't have rainbow colors of yarn, which makes my project comparatively deficient, but I did have a skein of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton!, which is less expensive than Sugar 'n' Cream (which is not expensive to begin with, so now you know that I Love This Cotton! is an even better deal) and contains more yarn. I got three dishcloths out of this skein.
I haven't used them yet, because they went straight into my "Gift Box" (this is a box full of random items that I pull from when I need a last minute gift), but I have some that my aunt made me (at least I think it's this pattern) that work really well, so go forth and knit!
Love and Popsicle Sticks,
P.S. I also bought fabric for curtains yesterday (for the yellow bedroom)! It was going to be a priority further down the list, but we have friends coming to stay in a month - and we'll probably put them in that room - so we wanted curtains. However, I can't work on them until I wash the fabric - and I don't know how much the West Michigan flooding makes the news wherever you are, but I'm not supposed to be doing any non-essential laundry until the flood waters recede a bit. We're not flooded where I live at all (we barely have any puddles), but I'm still trying to follow the law. :)
