Having circs in hot, little hand doesn't necessarily mean that one will rush to use them. That means that I didn't do any work on the tank last night. Instead, I opened a drawer in the chest where I stash some of my knitting stuff and saw balls of Lion Brand Homespun in various sizes rolling around, along with a nearly full skein -- mostly the remains of some scarves that my daughter knit. The Critter Knitters Knit-a-Thon is inescapable in knitters' blogland, and what better use for those little balls than a little critter blankie? It's been on my mind. I'm nearly at the half-way mark for an 18" blanket, but I'll likely have enough to make a larger one. I do believe I have some other acrylic yarn (in a different stash spot) that I could use for another one or two.
If you give a girl a cell phone, don't you think she'd call? Don't you think she'd just be dying to use her new phone?? A was expected home from cheerleader practice at 6:00 last night. She wasn't home and I hadn't heard from her by 6:30, so I called her! She was at a local home improvement store with some cheerleader friends, trying to hunt down a boy they know who works there; then they were going to a bridal shop to try on prom dresses. "Oh, I meant to call you." Well, too bad for you, missy, we're having artichokes (the kids' new favorite).
And no, I don't have $350 for a prom dress, even if it is your favorite color.
