Presents, Knitting and Drywall (with tomatoes!)
The sock yarn seems to have a mind of its own, because it jumped out of the hank, wound itself into a center-pull ball, and started wrapping itself onto size 1 circulars. Ribbing ensued....
I'm toodling around with my own sock pattern, and I think it's working so far. :-)
The sock yarn is distracting me from the project at hand, which is a coat in Wool of the Andes for the December KnitPicks catalog. This is 25" of stockinette, with only 10" to go until the back is done. Thrilling, yes? :-)
This was my latest project - coming soon to a catalog near you! These were in Swish DK, which is a very, very soft yarn and very nice to work with. Speaking of catalogs, the new one isn't out yet, but the pictures of the Mimbres and the Ruth Jacket are up on the KnitPicks website. The Mimbres is here and the Ruth Jacket is here. The jacket picture on the website is very dark and rather hard to see, but the catalog picture is not - it shows the detail very well (I've seen the catalog shot, but I can't show you until it's actually been mailed).
The Kitchen Project
(not for the faint of heart)
As I'm tearing the paper away, I'm noticing that the wall seems damp under the window. As it turns out, it was. The windowsill leaks. The
I don't know if you can see it, but the entire wall is wet. Ugh. The entire wall under the window is now torn out, and Kevin is going to try this weekend to find out where it's leaking (we found out, when it rained yesterday, that the original place that he suspected was not the right one. sigh...)
I'll leave you with a smile, though...
(actually, it's the bottom of a Black Russian tomato that Mom and Dad grew and brought to us. Since I seem to be 12, though, I'm gonna post it.) :-)
