Cutting it Close

I picked this up at the store yesterday. The only color we have left in the discontinued Bernat Hot Sox, sun hot. I have one pair of socks from this yarn in the Hippi Hot colorway. I like them a lot, and I'm sure the acrylic will outlive us all! I wish now I had more of this.

I finished the six dishcloths I needed for the Littlest One's preschool teacher and her two helpers. I made three plain dishcloths with Bernat Handicrafter Stripes. The other three are small arrow. The pink one is Coolspun Cotton, the yellow/orange/white is Bernat Handicrafter, and the greenish is Bernat Organic Cotton. The last one made was the green one, and I finished it last night, or I should say early this morning, at 12:30am! Then this morning before school (this is his last day of preschool, graduation next Wednesday night) I weaved in the ends, tied them up with raffia and put them in the gift bags, along with a Jersey Milk chocolate bar each. Oh, and photographed them, all twenty minutes before I had to be to work, and I still had to have breakfast and get dressed.

I'm hoping to get to Knit Nite tonight. I probably won't know til lunchtime. I have to see if my Dad gets home today. He's been away for quite a bit, so if he comes home I won't get Ma to watch the boys. If he's still away... well then, that's a different story!

Happy knitting!
