Freebie


I seem to somehow have become the proud owner of a ball of Pingouin Kirouna.




It's a gorgeous colo(u)r, dark blue with flecks of yellow and plum and green, but I have no idea what to do with it.

From what I can tell from my (admittedly brief) internet search, it's about 132 yards and is 50% acrylic, 40% wool, 9% viscose and 1% rat feces.

Wait, no, that's the food at the local fast food restaurant, isn't it? I think I can guarantee that there is no ratpoop in this whatsoever, although one hesitates to make that sort of claim when one lives in the filthy chaos that is my home of late.

Based on my search of this madhouse, there is only one ball available. If there is anyone out there who would like to give it a good home, please send me an email with an address included and it will be meandering in your general direction on Thursday.

If nobody claims it, then I'll try to think of something to make with it but I hardly think it's dishcloth material and, alas, that's all I'm going to be able to make this month, apart from the dreaded Raw Chicken Viking Hat.

I've been knitting dishcloths like a maniac but a dozen of them seem to have been set free into the wild in the last month and I find myself, four weeks before my deadline, with 2-3/4 completed dishcloths and a vague feeling of impending doom.

I'm beginning to suspect I may, indeed, be an ass, however I also need the loot from the dishcloths and am determined to finish the order of 20 within the allotted time.

Many of them will be green. Pray for me.

Comments:
you will have to forgive a new reader when she asks "what the hell is a dishcloth deadline??" someone out there wants green dishcloths in a timely manner?!
 
Prays for bunnnies... :D *pray*

Good enought?

that's good hehe....
 
Dog speed on the dishcloths. I wish I could say I feel your pain, but nope, I don't.

Nice yarn but I bet it's gone already.
 
I wish you much free time to knit by (provided by a husband who not only picks up after himself, but after you and the daughter as well, and a daughter who is content to play quietly by your feet while you knit and knit and knit). I added that last bit so that my "free time" blessing wasn't inadvertantly provided by something hideous like unemployment!
 
hey, i keep getting emails from blogger saying it's not delivering my comments on the chicken blog. wassup wid dat? anyway, good luck on the dishcloths, and i'll send cotton vibes your way.
