Sorry there was no post last night, I was knitting!
The day went fine with my children. We actually got four report cards written last night instead of just the three that were on the schedule. We did however have some bad news -our secretary is retiring:( She is an amazing woman and runs our school so well! I’m happy for her, but don’t really know how we’re going to survive September!
It turned out to be a rest day.
I was crazy busy last night running around. I stopped at the dollar store to get cards, tissue paper and gift bags. What did I do before there were dollar stores for these things? I love getting a card for $2 rather than spending the $6-$8 they want at the card store! I then ran to one of my bookclub members to grab the next book club book. I couldn’t find it at any of the local libraries, but she had gotten it from hers. When I looked online the Kindle edition was $15! For that much, I want a real book!
I went home to knit madly as I thought I had a chance of finishing because I was on the bottom band of the sweater. Well I had used the 3X method to save enough yarn for the final cast off. Then I noticed I had to do a row of purl before that so I set aside that yarn too. I got three quarters of the way through the purl row when I realized I wasn’t going to have enough yarn so I had to tink back the purl row and the row before that. I did that and got to the last thirty rows of my cast off when I ran out of yarn. Thankfully I had the same yarn without the sparkle, so I grabbed it and used a little to finish the last thirty stitches of cast of.
It felt great to finish up and I did get the project created on Ravelry and the sweater entered into a class for HPKCHC! I will have to go back later to add details to the project page.
At this point, I had to go to sleep!
Well, I’ll be back later to tell you about today.
