Busy, busy

Things have been hectic between work and packing, but don't worry, it doesn't mean I'm not knitting! I have been managing to keep up with my knit-alongs and, although I haven't posted them yet, I have been taking pictures. I've made a number of gifts recently, as well, and I don't want to post about them or pictures of them until after they have been gifted, so you will just have to be patient.

I almost have my knitdishcloths exchange package for my partner Michele all ready to mail out. I am hoping to mail it monday on the way to my really not fun dentist apointment. The dentist thinks its funny that I knit while I wait for him. I even asked him for scissors when I was there last week for a cleaning because I finished the cloth I was working on and wanted to start another. :-) I think it would be funny to make him a cloth with a tooth on it. I saw a pattern for one somewhere.

I am loving the MonthlyDishcloths mid-month KAL. Its a pretty cable pattern and I love doing cables. They look so complicated when really they're not. I'm seriously thinking of starting a second cloth of the same pattern because its coming out so pretty.

I joined another yahoo group. This one is not for knit-alongs though. Its the TeaTimeKnitters group and its all about exchanges! I mailed out my postcards for the postcard exchange yesterday and I've received 2 already. I love, love, love getting mail. :-)

I bet some of you are wondering about the Venezia Dress. Well, let me just say that before I go to work today I am going to go try to find a nude colored slip to wear under it...

So now its time to decide what to take to work today. Do I take all dishcloth stuff and work on some gifts I really really want to get done or do I do something super exciting and cast on for the baby blanket that I have the yarn for just staring at me asking me when I will play with it?
