It was like trying to wash myself with a crumbly cannonball. So pissed. My rosy outlook has passed and though I am still mourning the idea of a bath poof army, at least I had the sense to try it out before I made myself more. But hey, now I can use the cotton I had set aside from the stash for all my would-be poofs (I was very gung-ho about this idea) for new washcloths :) Or brain coral should the minions need something like that for Science class ;)
There has been more knitting going on though. I whipped up a wee cable hat for little miss' Assistant Teacher to give as a gift to her best friend's daughter.
And I've been on a roll with knitted washcloths and things.
The minions have had continued success at Tee Ball. I can't believe they only have 9 games left plus whatever end-of-season tournament they decide to put on.
They took a break from practicing to model the South Shore Lodge beanies I made out of the Dead Walleye Hat Trio leftovers. These two hats will be traveling to Canada with the FIL on his annual fishing trip which is coming right up!
And now for a bit of sad news.... 2 of my dye buddies were headed to the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival over Mother's Day weekend. I was a bit later than I wanted to be when it came to finishing up the two projects for K but I made it and thought it would be fun for her to receive her handknits over that weekend. Things were washed and packaged and mailed out and the lady at the post office assured me that the package should arrive by that Saturday. It didn't. Can't win them all, right? The hotel was instructed to mark the package "Return to Sender" and I would just send it on to her once I got the package back. Thing is, I still haven't received the package. My handknits are lost somewhere in postal world. ;( So send me some positive waves so the Postal Friendlies can find my handknits and return them to me so I can get these two lovelies to their intended recipient :)
In other news... Earlier today, the Dreams in Fiber family and I were heading out to see some friends that we haven't seen in about a year and the kids noticed a wee bird that was grounded. Don't know if it fell out of a nest or what but it sure wasn't flying anywhere. Hope nothing gets it...
