While the Boys are at Scout Camp...

I'm almost recovered from the jet lag, but I do still fall asleep on the couch at 6 PM if left alone, and I fell asleep in the middle of knitting the other night about 9:30 PM. Arghhhh! Anyhoo, I got my fabric washed up but still haven't gone upstairs to the sewing room yet, despite the new onset of FREE TIME since the boys are gone for a week to Tennessee. Lately I've been obsessed with knitting. Now our local Joann is moving to the Festival Center and will be closing in just a few days, so they have everything 50-75% off! I was looking for cotton yarn to make dishrags for our Lake Martin trip, and I bought every skein they had left (it wasn't much). I also got this book for 1/3 the usual price - woohoo! (And yes, the lines are long, which is why I bought the book...I stood in line for about 20 minutes staring at it. Smart product placement, Joann!)




















Now I know these pictures are tiny, but this is what I have planned for the yarn. This one is the Darrell Waltrip dishcloth, and I didn't like it initially, but there are some better pictures at Ravelry that look intriguing.








And this one is Nai'Nai's Favorite, which is apparently a combination of Chinese Waves and Grandmother's something-or-other patterns. It'll be first up.







The plan is to use these at Lake Martin then let the ladies take them home as gifts...used, dirty gifts....real nice.

(Also, anybody else having trouble with blogspot's new photo adder thing? It messed up my spacing - bleh.)

Great job getting all the deals at Joann! I can't wait to see what you make. I've been sewing in the day and knitting at night too. What a great book, by the way!
I haven't had issues with uploading photos from blogger but I have not been posting with as much frequency!

Glad to know about the prices at JoAnn's. I knew they were moving, but have not been in a while. I might have to go stock up on a few things.

I'm still holding my breath for July 1st Pam, to see what happens to my blog reading list...

Better hurry Becky - the stores half empty now and they close on the 26th I think. Maybe I'll see you in there!
