Procrastination via Warshrag

I confess: I haven't added the buttons and button band to Snit Cardigan yet. It was still too damp all day Sunday for me to work on it. In the interim, I made a hexagonal washcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting. What fun! It was my first experience with bobbles and I enjoyed it immensely. I cast on for the slip-stitch dishcloth last night but haven't made a lot of progress on it -- which is just as well, because it's a palate-cleanser project anyway.

There has not been much time for knitting or blogging in the last few days; Mr. Fury leaves for a six-week tour tomorrow, so I've been tagging along with him on errands. I will be doing a lot of knitting in his absence ...

dishcloths are so much fun. small, quickly done, and easy to experiment with.

tour sucks. for girls at home, at least. when one of my friends went on tour last year, he told his wife that she needed to learn to knit while he was gone. she didn't, but i supported the idea!

Indeed. I don’t know how people can stand it if they don’t have something to keep them occupied. I’m lucky … I love my Day Job, I have plenty to do with the Satan’s Cheerleaders, and there’s always knitting. :-)

I go a bit nutty when my husband travels with work. I knit like a fiend and clean the apartment like a mad woman. The key is to keep busy.

Can't wait to see the finished sweater. LOL!

I think the dishcloths are fun, too, but I never use them. I sort of think of them as swatches, and then my daughter steals them for the beds she keeps her dolls in.

If only the dishcloths fit into my life. If only. . .
