This is what I found

A couple of updates:

1. I finally was able to finish reading Alison's new book "Wrapped in Comfort, Knitted Lace Shawls". It was as good as I thought it would be. I might even have to make one someday. The family has continued to eat (sometimes leftovers are better the second day).

2. The glasses have been found. Right....err....ummm....where I had left them. The camera was then promptly lost.

3. The soakers are dry and are in the mail. (I was "Queen of Delagating" today. Whoever came near me got a job to do, and one had the "going to the post office" job.) The pattern is mine (but not written up, sorry). The handspun was purchased from a member of the wool_soaker_group, so not mass produced by any means. It's a nice Corriedale.

4. So that I don't keep confusing Diane, let me just say that while I'm not dyeing any yarn tonight, I did wind some. Plus, I need to collect several projects and locate the patterns and needles. Plenty of last things to do since tomorrow is my trip.

On to the pictures.

A couple of days ago DH asked me if I had looked at my pictures in my camera lately. (NO.) He also made the comment that I have 6-7 places in the house that's not covered with my knitting.

Hmmm...I'd better see what he's up to.

Then, the camera was lost. Then the camera was found--again-right where I had left it.

This is what I found:

I should've included a picture of the floor just so that you can see that I can actually find my floor amidst that mess!

Thanks for clearing that up for me. You always crack me up with your "I hope this is dry by morning so I can knit" routine. lol.

I misplace my glasses all the time.

Hi ruth,

i'm glad that i'm not the only one who keeps her knitting wherever there's a open spot.... ;-) I'm a good girl lately because DH started to tell me that if i wouldn't clear it he would perhaps frog something...he knows that that is very...very...dangerous but i understood that i had to put some of my knitting in 1 place instead of twenty. :-)

But hee...i saw a knitting machine there??? now i know how you can knit so quickly sometimes... :-D

Thank you! I'm delighted you enjoyed the book, thank you! Just watch out for nesting season when you dry your yarn outside, right?...
