I FINALLY finished that stinking Moss Grid Hand Towel from Mason Dixon Knitting-for Mom's birthday that was, ahem, a month ago. I don't know why (well, yeah I do-'cuz when you do not actually knit something, it seldom knits itself-funny, that knitting.....) but it just took me forever and I really wondered if it was worth the effort at all. I mean, a towel?? Can I not purchase one of these items at any one of 27 nearby stores? Ahh the curse of the hand knitter-why buy when you can KNIT it?! It is handmade! A one of a kind, made with love (and some grumpiness and maybe a little name calling, too, but we will just play forgetsies with that, 'k?)! So I plowed on through and now that it is done, I am glad. Mom deserves something special, even if it is a wee smidge late-ish. It will be blocked and photographed tomorrow and I will throw it on up here on the old blogeroosky. I know you are on the edge of your seat with anticipation....try to hang on till then!
