I finally finished the dishcloth I was knitting. Dishclothes are supposed to be a quick and simple project. The crocheted ones are for me, but knitting is more difficult; painful even.
We are driving to see my mom later this week. Road trip for Tim's mom, too. There is just no way around it. My mom is giving us a car. It was my Grandpa and Grandma's car, then mom's for the past 13 years and now will be mine. I am thrilled. I was going to rent a car, drop it off and they would pick me up, we'd have lunch and I would drive back in my "new" car. Sounds reasonable, right? Yes, until I found out that one-way rental is $1 per mile. It's over 300 miles. So now we are all going and they will drop me off. I wanted to take these dishcloths with me for mom. Two crocheted ones and one knitted one. I think my favorite is the white crocheted one with the pink border. The pink border was a last minute addition to perk it up a bit.
Oops..hubby just told me that the lawn mower is totalled. We thought it was just a broken pull rope, but further investigation has revealed a broken crankshaft. It was doing so well. I wonder what I hit this time? I think he's a little miffed at me, but he is on his way to buy another. We have to have a mower. I feel bad. :( I tried to be careful, but it isn't always easy to see what's under the grass on the hill next to the road and people have a horrible tendency to throw things out of their cars there because they can't see our house and think it's a desolate straight stretch. I am forever running over beer bottles at that bank.
Oh well, back to happier things. My dishcloths.........
