Yesterday was my Knitting for Children group's annual knitathon. As usual, the best laid plans.... I had a killer headache all night Saturday, better Sunday, but not gone. Between naps I did manage to get a little done, but figured I'd better stick to easy patterns.
The blanket is a simple dishcloth pattern in Homespun, and the bootie pattern is below. I did catch some of the Super Bowl, although I admit I also watched Monk and just tried to catch the commercials. My Broncos didn't play, so I was in mourning. The Bud commercials were funny, but my favorite were the monkeys. Who doesn't love a good monkey commercial?
Back to Plain Jane- she should be finished tonight, so I can start the Hand to Hand at long last. My expreriment with the Buttonhole Bag has gone awry. Hoping I can salvage that this week, too.
