In like a lion
Well I have another day off from school today. It was supposed to be 6-12 inches of snow, but we got a couple inches of snow and it has been sleeting and freezing rain ever since. I would have rather had a 2 hour delay, but I'll stick close to home today. I have things to do here. I have to start my 400 page book for bookclub next Thursday, get a workout in, empty the dishwasher, laundry, clean the bathroom for our company that is coming in tomorrow and tidy up other various parts of the house. And what do I really want to do? Well that's right sit down and work on my latest knitting project and watch tv.
I finished that adorable little hooded poncho last night. What an easy and quick project! It is pretty well designed too. I do hope my sister likes it and lets my niece wear it.
The pattern is from Creative Knitting July 2005 issue.
I just cast on this morning for a vest for CIC in some wool yarn I found at the dollar store. I know I couldn't believe it either. It is a Moda Dea yarn or something like that. And I do have to apologize. As I read my last entry, I realized how much the lack of sleep effects my spelling and grammar. I have to remember to reread my posts before I leave them as the final one! Thankfully I had a morning to sleep in, but my sleep w3as interrupted by the 5:45 am call to say school was closed, walk down stairs to the phone chain and call the next person in line, forgetting to turn off the 6:30 alarm, and having the cats meow for food after that. But I got to stay in bed until 7:30 so that was a treat! Thanks for all your nice comments. I guess I am a fast knitter especially when you consider I make small projects, knit whenever I want, I knit the same project start to finish (usually) and have no kids around my house to pull me away from my chair! Thanks again for stopping over!
