These are Idiot's dishcloths. Also from a ballband, til I realized I didn't like how the one side was thinner than the other so I went back to the old pattern I used to use. All these so far are for the Pass Creek Elderly Center. It's a KAL/CAL this month I am in.
This one is for my sister. To go with the crocheted one I did.
I cut my pinky finger today. :( We recently got a new steel grater (cuz our old one was SO rusty and falling apart, I was afraid to use it cuz of the rust...) Need I say more?... Well, I was grating carrots for meatloaf and whack! OOOOOOWWW! (I said a more colorful word than that, but I shouldn't repeat it... I hope my six year old didn't understand/hear it. He was my little helper today. I hiss/whispered it under my breath as I was walking away....) It hurt!! I put a band-aid on it right away. I could only find two band-aids~~ the one time I need one. I had to change it and use the second one, cuz it was soaked with blood. It doesn't hurt anymore (it stopped hurting about an hour or so later). But it is right on the last joint of my finger, and it is seriously hampering my knitability!! :( I think I am going to go get some Barbie band-aids or something. Then when I need one, there will be some. :P
I have been cleaning today. (Breaking News!!) :P I cleaned off the computer desk (mostly all my crap: dishcloth cotton, crochet hooks, patterns I printed out... books....) Cleaned off my dresser!!! Yay, me! And cleaned off the ironing board in my room. (Note to self: If you put it away right after you use it, stuff won't pile up on it!! And, yes; it is all my stuff...) Sigh. I need a craft room. Then there won't be piles everywhere. Only in my craft room. :-D (And I can keep the door closed.) I dusted the whole house, except the 17 yr olds room. He's old enough to do it himself. Swept and mopped the kitchen floor and entryway. (I found a cockroach on the floor- dead, but.... I HATE cockroaches! That is what started this whole cleaning frenzy btw...) It's okay. I needed to clean anyway. Tried to re-organize things on my kitchen hutch. My husband unpacked a box of stuff and kinda put it on there, but.... (I didn't like the way it looked.) Plus, it is REALLY old antique stuff, that I know one of the kids will inevitably knock off *somehow* and break... So I put that INSIDE the hutch, and tried to redecorate. (It doesn't look *much* better, decorating-wise, but... it's clean.) I need someone to help me decorate, I am no good at it.
Well I am going to go make a cup of tea. I hope summer is treating you all nicely. Or whatever season it is in your part of the world. :)
