Less than two weeks to go :)

Yup, Two weeks from yesterday and the kids are back in school. YIPPEE!!! I'm more than ready to have my days (most of it anyway) to myself again! More than ready to get back on "my" schedule. More than ready to have silence.

After supper I go grocery shopping, and pick up the last of the stuff we need for back to school. Also picking up a few things for a friends daughter who is going away to school.

I'm knitting a multi-directional scarf, using a ball of Sirdar Snowflake that I found at Value Village, and then sort of forgot I had until I found it yesterday morning. I got the pattern from The Yarn Harlot Mine is pink, blue, yellow, peach, green and purple - think that is all the colors. Not sure what I'm going to do with it when it's done, probably sell it. Katie wants it, but she has so many scarves now!

My friend Linda was here yesterday, and noticed my little pile of face/dish clothes. Asked where I got the patterns from, so I showed her a few sites that I go to. She saw a skull and crossbones, and asked me to knit that for her to give to her brother for Christmas. We couldn't find any black cotton, so we decided on blue. She said to mail it to her when it's done - she only home until Sunday. I'll give it to her tonight when I go in grocery shopping. Had it done before I went to bed last night. I'll take a picture of it for you to see.

My friend Elizabeth got me a 1 lb ball of cotton that is greens and yellows. Nice bright colors. Can't wait to start using that :)

Have a good one!

Dorothy,

How generous you are with your knitting time!

I can remember this time of the year and my anticipation of the kids going back to school also, and finally you'll have some long awaited time to yourself. :)

I too remember well waiting for that first day of school when you get your life back again!
Can't wait to see a picture of the skull and crossbones.
Have a great weekend!
