Fiber to garment

I finally finished the Brattleboro Hat (ravelry) and the Maine Morning Mitts (ravelry).  The pink yarn is 2 plys of the pink, 1 ply of the white and 1 ply of glow in the dark sewing thread.  I also held a second strand of the sewing thread with the yarn as I knit.  The plain white fiber I had gotten at Mannings.  The yarn is Navajo plied.

The camera was being VERY uncooperative, and wouldn't take a picture in the dark when the yarn was glowing, but trust me, it glows.

Weird, or is it Wierd?

I can never remember. Whichever it is, that's what this past weekend was.

At 3:56pm on Friday, I got a call from someone whose calls normally involve major thought. This one didn't. He was just calling to say that he appreciates what we do.

On Friday and Saturday, there were tickets in the bin for people who had the same names as people I work with.

Saturday evening, a guest asked me if I was a Girl Scout Leader because she'd seen me at Indian Echo Caverns that day.

On Sunday, someone at church said (to me) that "you girls are just growing so much". OOOKKKAAAY. Someone's hamster isn't doing well.

And, finally, the girl at Panera's had my order in the computer before I was even to the counter. Either I go there to often, or I need to change what I get.
