A new computer means I can finally post pictures!

I had too many pics to download on my camera, so I've been (im)patiently waiting for a new computer so I could finally post! Now I'm just going to have to remember how to do this with all these pics. Okay, please bear with me. I may have to edit on my old one. However, I am going to type all the text now, and try to move it when I am not in the mood to sledge hammer anything. If anyone uses an apple out there, could you please help me with the cut and paste function. My old right click method is now defunct. Not going to work! Thanks!!

Okay, the first two pics are of mop covers out of Peaches and Creme in Spring Meadows. They were crocheted. They took right around 300 yards, based on the weight calculations of yardage on the cone and my kitchen scale. Not the most reliable, but the best method I had available to me.

The next three pics are for knitted dishcloths. the four cloths took approx. 50 yards each, which totals around 200 yards.
number 71
byw, I love that number! I love it when random isn't quite so random!

I don't know about anyone else, but I've got a zillion projects going on. I'm knitting slippers for the family, as well as socks in the same color for the girls in my house (and I'm included). I am keeping each one as one project as it's easier to keep track of yardage when the whole skein/ball/hank is gone and I'm dealing with multiples. If this isn't okay, please let me know! I have a few other projects going on as well. You know, too many sticks in the fire. That's me. You should see the knitting list I *think* I am going to get done by Christmas. Bwhahahahahahahhaha. yep. I'm that funny (read:delusional) The scary part? I wouldn't have it any other way!

Sleep tight and KNIT ON!!!!
