I was TAGGED!
Okay, this may not seem possible, but when given the opportunity, you are able to play tag through the mail! I was/am a member of Dish Rag Tag found at Yarn Miracle. Our box has had its fair share of hurdles to overcome, but we are an amazing group of Dish Rag Divas! Yesterday, right before noon, I called the post office to see if the box was in. IT WAS! I had taken my knitting needles to the classroom...so my plan was to quickly eat lunch, walk to the post office and back, then use the remaining 2 classes to quickly knit the cloth, package it up, and mail it back.
That WAS the plan. It was working fairly well...up until my principal decided to walk through the 8th grade math lesson on solving addition and subtraction equations. We had done the explanations, practices, reviews,..the students were practicing, so I was walking around knitting. This let me view what they were doing, while I could work on the rapidly increasing orange cloth. I'll have to admit I wasn't able to get it done before the mail leaves Chester at 4:15 PM.
I was able to finish it up today. (I did lots of homework last night...so I wasn't able to knit.) It is officially on its way...and NOW I remember I forgot to weave in 2 ends. Crud. This too shall pass!
