Well hello there! It’s been a few weeks. I have a good excuse though.
This is what our house looks like today…
drywall dust. everywhere.
those windows will be over the kitchen sink. yes we have no kitchen right now.
why yes that *is* a refridgerator in our living room
and here’s the temporary door the contractors installed so the girls can safely roam the second floor
We decided a few years ago to live in this house until we retired and so we’re making it exactly (ok, mostly) what we want. It’s a 1920s Colonial so it’s a big job – we’re on the third dumpster. It’ll be awesome when it’s done (in two more months) but for now we’re cooking on our patio and living on the second floor.
I just keep telling myself – October will be awesome.
That doesn’t mean there’s been no knitting, but it’s definitely lessened.
I’m happy to report some yarn acquisition has occurred
And my inspiration
Moda on the left and Orange on the right. We named her Nova when we adopted her but the names sounded too similar and they both just answered to both. Orange suits her anyway.
I’m planning socks out of the tabby yarn and a hitchhiker out of the tuxedo yarn.
I’m starting with the socks and I organized a little KAL for them in the My Sister’s Knitter group on ravelry.
Late every fall I lament that I didn’t make Little Pumpkin socks so this time I decided some public peer pressure might do the trick. I was happily surprised by the number of people who also had them on their to-knit list but never made them. Maybe we’ll have lots of new Little Pumpkins this fall?
Are you in that group too? C’mon and join us! They’re knit top-down but I think I’m going to do mine toe-up. We’ll see – I’m winding the yarn and casting on today.
If you want to join the KAL just join the group on rav and post to the thread. Simple and it’s fun to see all the
peer pressure progress pics.
I’ll catch you on the purl side.
