Today, we have pictures:

First, this is the dishcloth I recieved in the DishRagTag box today. Laura tied it up so that it looks like a butterfly. Thank you Laura! And it's in green, too, my favorite color :)

Second, here we have the stuff I'm mailing off tomorrow in the box. The washcloth (it took one Knitting Night, and one day of knitting to finish.) which is much brighter than it looks in this photo (I've got to learn to take better photos. Sigh. that means better lighting.). I did it from the pattern from the ball band, also found in Mason-Dixon Knitting. The yarn, in greens (What!? I like green!) and the goodies that are going in the box for Becky.

Dish Cloths!

I got the box! I got the box! It came at around 1pm, (probably. Don't get me started on my mailman...Let's just say I'm letting thistles grow in my flower beds. Just for him) Laura put in two lovely balls of dishcloth cotton, a granola bar (yummy! I think I'll be nibbling on that tonight) and gorgeous stitch markers. The yarn's going with me to Knitting at Panera's tonight. (pictures will be added later this evening) I think I'm going to be doing the ballband dishcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting. It's easy, it's pretty, and I can do it without looking at the pattern (Definitely a plus!)

Thanks for all your kind thoughts :) It's very nice to hear from all of y'all!

And, I agree, I should be thinking of all the little baby sweaters, and booties, and hats I can knit...And I am! Ooooh yes. I'm got lots of ideas running around in my head. But I can't get my hands to knit! They don't want to pick up the needles, they don't want to hold the yarn. Sigh. bad hands. You know what this means? I'm going to have to find absolutely lucious yarn, to tempt my hands into knitting again. Cami, when are you going to have your yarn shop open??

Reasons for leave of absence:

Reasons for leave of absence:

1: Have felt tired, and generally not well, for the last month.
a: the reason for this, is that I am pregnant.

This isn't a planned pregnancy, but our new baby is definitely wanted :) although...if I had remembered how tired I get when I'm pregnant, I might have waited longer...Little J takes lots of energy to chase after him all day long. Ah well. The new little one will be here the end of February.

Goodness gracious, I have to get new baby things. I gave away all (okay, most) of Little J's stuff. Hmm...and I'm going to have to get some clothes for me, too. I'm currently wearing dh's jeans because mine push against my tummy too much. Hopefully, the fashions this time don't make me look like a little SHORT round butterball. Last time, they did. Which meant I really really didn't spend much money on maternity clothes.
