Tax Time is Almost Over

Yippee! I cannot wait and then I will be back to my Friday knitting classes at Kraemer Yarns. Although it's almost over, I did volunteer to work off season. So, I have to work this Thursday and the next two Monday's. I will be off for 8 weeks and may land out working one day a week, but I definately want to teach. That I am looking forward to doing.

Most of all, I am looking forward to relaxing, knitting and reading and spending time with my Maggie May. She how great she looks! I think she has been studying while I have been working. Ways to get even for leaving her alone in her crate while I went off to work. Oh, Oh, I am in big trouble. Maybe I need to take her to pet training classes. That may also be in the cards for my time off.

I was able to finish off a dishcloth from my Monthly dishcloth group. It's called The Meadow by Lindy. I used Peaches and Cream yarn in Gold with size 7 needles. This was a cute cloth to knit up.

Check this yarn out! I got it at Kraemer's on Saturday. It's called Flat Feet yarn. Instead of having the yarn in a ball, you pull on the thread as you knit. First you knit from one end and then the other. The colors are very vibrant. I think I will start on my next sock with this yarn. I can't wait to see how it knits up. They are going to get more in stock.

I also caved in and ordered yarn from the Loopy Ewe. I got three different kinds and love them all.

I am just hopeless with sock yarn.

I loved this month's dishcloth, didin't you? Love the fibery goodness!

I'm curious to how the Flat Feet works. I don't think I quite get it. Maybe you should do a little play by play when you get around to turning it into a pair of socks.
