Hanging On!

Lately, I've taken to checking my blog to see if possibly it's just updated itself since I know there's no way that I've done it. I'm not that sympathetic to people who complain that they're soooo busy. I always feel like much of that is just a choice, and I include myself in that. However, the reason that I stay so busy during the school year is about to arrive! I teach extra college classes because I hate worrying about money during the summer. The two of us make more than enough not to have to worry about making it through the summer, BUT I want to splurge on travel, eating out, and shopping during the summer..so I work extra. My college classes are finished...except for the final grades and my high school classes will be over in two and a half weeks, and then summer will be here!
Maybe then I'll have more than a little, lace doily thing that I knit after discovering Vintage on Ravelry. Of course, now I can't find the exact pattern, but flacon is the one that I was first drawn to because it is an old Danish pattern. OMG! I've just bragged that I knit a doily. What's next? Toilet paper covers?!!!

It's beautiful!
I used to knit some of those years ago. And my grandmother knits several big ones each year.

That is so darn pretty!!! Nothing wrong with "old school" knitted stuff.....traditional and attractive. Can't wait to see you next month.

It looks like the one you have to knit for the Knitting Guild's Master Hand knitting certification.

You're SOOOO funny!!! If you DO do a tp cover, I'm sure it will be beautiful, just like your doily. So, will you have the whole summer off? That would be awesome!

Very nice! I used to have all kinds of doilys around. Then I got cats who like to slide on them...

No, what's next is you'll beginning preparing doilies for Paige's hope chest. (Just kidding!)

I've been bad about my blog too. I hope to start doing a better job of updating it. Love the doily! It looks like it would be as fast and fun knit.
