So Many Plans… So Little Time…

…especially when almost 5 hours of that is spent in the emergency room with my daughter.

What a day I had planned for myself. My local yarn shop – The Fiber Studio in Henniker, NH – has a group of women who get together and knit on Weds from 10 until some time after lunch. In preparation, I brought Maddy there last night to pick out the yarn for her slippers. All I can say is that she and I are kindred spirits, and that she has REALLY awesome taste!

Yummy, right? It’s Reynolds Smile, Bulky weight

The inside has yellows, blues, greens, it’s a veritable hand-dyed-rainbow!

so I drop the kids at school, instruct them to take the bus home, come home, sew the last 3 buttons on Katie’s slippers, and get ready to go. I stop on the way, get the PERFECT cup of coffee from Dunkins, and arrive fashionably late. I sit down, introduce myself, and get ready to knit. These women are soooo nice. And then it happens… My cell phone rings… and it’s the school nurse… UG! Maddy has slipped at school and I need to bring her to the ER. “That’s OK” I think to myself, I have my project, I can knit at the ER. NOPE! I brought the WRONG SIZE NEEDLES! So, almost 5 hours later, I leave, Maddy has a sprained knee, I have wasted an entire day, the button came off my awesome sweater jacket, and I haven’t gotten a THING knit!

There – I feel better – thanks for listening. I am off to knit Maddy’s new slippers. I can’t wait to see how the incredible colors come together!

I’ll post pics later tonight!

    Sorry about the blow-up doing your day, but there’s still family and fantastic yarn to come home to in the evening. And it’s very VERY fun yarn! Can’t wait to see pics.
