Dish Cloth Maker’s Cry

I try very hard to keep this blog strictly for links

It’s an unwritten rule I have you see.

This evening that rule is being broken and for a very good reason.

For it is  a little over a  week before Christmas and I am in a state of frenzy…That I am indeed.

It has dawned on me in a sudden burst that there are lots of deadlines to meet.

Dishcloths to make, an afghan to be seamed, a comfortghan to be complete.

There are links to be added here for others to use. My files are still overflowing with things to share.

So much to do and so little time  to be had.

Blast this silly bug it had to land on me now!!

Two days lost  to it  never  again to be found.

Take a deep breath and calm yourself down.

Things will get one way or another.

That’s easy to think, I tell myself…

One…Two…Three deep breaths I take.

Almost calm, now I am.

Until suddenly….It comes to me:

Oh no! Oh no! Is my cry…Where can it be?  Where can it be? That yarn that is set aside for a special set of dishcloths.

It is to go to my Sister in Law you see.

It’s the yarn that is pink,blue, and white, with just a tint of green,

It was here when I rearranged part of my stash.

Where did it go? Oh where did it go?

Three large bins of Rubbermaid  have been searched.

I looked through skeins of red, white and green.

There was every shade of purple, yellow and blue.

But there was not a ball of Seashore by Bernat to be seen.

I am NOT in a panic…Why no, not me!

Never, Never  No, not me!

Be still my heart, or you’ll go a flutter.

At last..It dawns on me.

Look in the cabinet that holds cones and clear bins.

I might find it there…

Yes!! Yes!! It is there. four precious skeins of the yarn I see.

Now some new dishcloths they will be…

What pattern to use? What will I choose?

Who do I ask? I say to myself…Who will know?

Go online I say to myself

There are tons to be found.

Will they be square, rectangular or round?

The answers are yet to be found…

What matters for now is that the yarn is in my hand.

Please accept my thanks for using my site as a stopping place on your search for just the right gift! If you find one item of you use, then my time has not been in vain.
