My dryer broke on Sunday night, before I was able to finish the laundry. Of course, I'd already washed the last 2 loads and they were just waiting to dry...John worked on it Sunday night and figured out that it blew a thermal fuse. I took those two loads to the laundromat on Monday after work. And John was able to get the fuse and repair the dryer last night. But in the meantime, while he was trying to figure out what was wrong, Gilligan staked his usual claim to anything that resembled a box or a container!
Yarn Smackdown 2008 started on Friday, the same day as the Olympics. I entered 3 events: The Advanced Sock, The Lace Bookmark, and a mystery event called Food Fight. Here is my advanced Sock becgun on Friday - my target lives in southern San Diego.
Next is my Lace Bookmark - pretty, huh? I've never done a bookmark and this one was a snap to knit. I mailed it off to my target in Georgia on Monday afternoon. And finally, the Food Fight entry. It was called Toast - yep, a 4 inch square of knitted fabric to represent toast and mailed to your target! Mine was a brown rye with a crocheted round of orange marmalade...mailed on Monday to my target in upstate New York. So far, I've not been killed by any of my assassins. I've just turned the heel on the sock and hope to at least get one done before I get killed and have to send the unfinished portion off to my assassin to finish.
Well, enough randomness for today. Have a wonderful week and thanks for dropping by.
