Is it Monday night already??

I really didn't intend to be away from the computer all weekend, but somehow it just worked out that way. Thanksgiving was fun and we didn't eat TOO much. Saturday was my 20th (?????) High School Reunion. (How can it be 20 years already??) I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. My best friend (since 6th grade) and her husband were able to make the trip down from New Hampshire, so I knew even if it was lame, Pea and I would have a great time with them. (Luckily, it wasn't lame!!) It was weird to see people who looked familiar, and suddenly remember their names after all these years. People I used to be friends with, but hadn't thought about in years. A few people I had known since kindergarten. Of course, as a special kind of hell, they printed up name-tags for us that had our high school photos on them. The '80s were not the best time, fashion and hair-wise!!

Over the long weekend, some knitting also got done. A few of my Delusional Deadline projects are now complete. First off is the Flower Washcloth.

Done, blocked and gifted to my best friend yesterday. I wish I had gotten a picture of the whole gift once it was put together, but I was lucky I remembered to snap this picture before she took everything home. The pattern is from Weekend Knitting, and it's the same cloth I've knit before, but this time I used the chenille yarn suggested in the pattern. I use the cotton flowers as dishcloths, but the chenille makes a nice washcloth. I picked up a bunch of yummy bath stuff and lotions at Bath and Body Works so she can pamper herself. She really needs it, with one son in kindergarten and a nine month old at home!! This was certainly a big hit!!

So, to re-cap my project list:

  • Flower Cloth
  • Daisy Sock
  • Baby Sweater
  • Fetching
  • Socks
  • Fetching
  • Slippers
  • Fetching
The Daisy socks are almost dry, so that will give me another one to cross off tomorrow. And I made great progress on the Baby Sweater over the weekend as well. Hmmmmm, maybe I can fit a couple more projects in!!

I love how Fetching is in 3 different places on the list! How is the house coming?

Looks like your knitting is going along really well! The face cloth is lovely, great color and looks ooooh so soft :) I'm glad you had a nice thanksgiving and fun at your reunion, I won't even tell you how long its been since I graduated, it just might make me ill! lol

The flower washcloth turned out great. I have that same color chenille in my stash, I'm gonna make one for my mom.

Love the flower cloth. It looks so soft! I tried one of those when I first started knitting. I didn't get very far. Glad you had fun at your 20th reunion. Mine was this summer but I didn't go. I heard from a classmate that it was, in fact, pretty lame.

what kind/brand of yarn is that exactly. I like the washcloth idea, I am knitting dishrags. I take a set to people's houses as "hostess gifts" when they host a cookie exchange or something like that. But a washcloth would be divine. Keep up the good work MARTHA!

How did we get so old? lol

Love, love, love the flower washcloth. :)

Flower is very pretty! I admire your list - I don't even think about a project until I cast on for it. I could spend hours just making databases, charts & fishbones and end up not knitting a stitch.

Alisha said...

I love the flower wash cloth....real cute!!!

Your sweet to make sure she has something special to pamper herself with!!!

I look forward to seeing your finished items!!!

I know...20 years? Can it possibly be 20 years since I was wearing rubber bracelets and teasing my hair because I so badly wanted to be Madonna? Ugh.

You are kidding about squeezing in a few more projects, aren't you? Stop the madness, Karen!!!
