Finished Object Friday: Possibly in the Future

I'm really not enjoying the swimming lessons with the children. I have to struggle with Jerome, because I can't let him toddle around, what with all the water and the drowning and all. The first session, Amira would cry after the first 10 minutes, because she has no body fat, and the water was cold and she would freeze and be miserable. We have given her a pass, because she is so little, and we will wait until this summer to start her on swimming lessons again. Since we live in a place that is surrounded with water, we want them to at least know the basics of swimming, and not to panic in water.

The boys are enjoying it, but between wrestling with Jerome and comforting Amira, I was not really able to talk to other parents, walk on the track (I thought I might be able to exercise a little myself while they did their lessons, silly me), read a book or knit, the way all those parents on the various knitlists seemed to be able to do at their children's lessons/sports. Now, with Amira not taking swimming at all, I was struggling to find things to entertain her while we watched her brothers. So, this past week, I finally brought the double stroller and gave her a book. And I got to knit! I still can't walk and knit on the track, like I did when Rich would take the other children during gymnastics, but I did get to knit a little bit, since I can chatter with Jerome while I do it. I might even start to have more projects to share here if I can keep this up.

So, how is your crafting going? Is anyone else out there getting stuff finished? I've been so out of the loop for the last month, that I don't know what is going on in the knitting world anymore, let alone any other crafty things.

If you have one or more finished items this week, please sign Mr. Linky below and share all you have made. Your Finished Object(s) can be knit, crocheted, sewn, quilted, tatted, beaded, papercraft, woodwork or any other kind of craft. Show off what you have made! Please make sure you link to the exact post that shows your finished item(s) rather than just to your blog.

I finished a ballband dishcloth last week. I'm trying to knit a dishcloth a week. I may have bitten off more than I can chew. I'm such a slow knitter, but for now I'm plugging along at it.
