Another funny thing....yesterday my Grandma came over to drop some stuff off and saw my Ballband dishrags laying on the counter (see hot pink and lime green rags from last post) picked one up and said..."That's...(insult least offensive adjective here)....interesting." Great...she said the same thing when I died my hair purple. She hates them. Then? Surprising part? She then said..."Can I have one?" Uh....okay. I asked if she'd rather have something that wasn't magenta and lime...so I bought some more dishrag cotton that was a little more fitting for my Grandma and cast on yet another project. That brings the count up to 19. I can't decide if that's a sign of O.C.D. or just boredom. One last wonderful thing for today...my army guy sent me a naughty little note on facebook! It's a good day!

I also did a small bit of crocheting (top picture....blog was not cooperating)...I did take the white baby yarn and finished the yarn ball, which turned out to be almost a 2'x2' square, which is a great start! There is a girl at my work who is pregnant and she may be the recipient of this particular baby blanket...I have so much time in each of them, I prefer to give them away so I know where they are going. I know I could never possibly get my money's worth out of selling them to perfect strangers, so I prefer to just give them away. I crochet 3'x3' granny squares in a solid color and do a ruffled edge in a different or multi-colored yarn. They take a good long time, but they're worth it.
And quite possibly the biggest news yet! I have a tan. It's probably the first one in ten years, and I'm so proud of it. I'm showing it off as much as I possibly can before it peels away...
See you onThursday, Mad knitters, and to the rest of you, have a lovely day!

I'm also taking a crochet baby blanket and a Dolly Mama cross stitching set...hopefully I'll finish the set and I'll just go until I run out of yarn on the blanket...which shouldn't take too long!
I need to go pack up my knitting bag...I'll leave you with a moment of zen in place of current unfinished project picture. Here is my cat with some of my handspun.
Happy knitting and I'll be back in a week!
