The post-Thanksgiving stupor extends to the dogs.
Both girls are on the road back to their respective campuses. All the other company (three of D#1's friends) have also cleared out. The first of many loads of laundry is in the machine and the bathrooms have all been re-scrubbed. Only the vacuum tango remains.
And then I can join Bridget on the couch!
I have been knitting — in fact I have a few finished projects and two just-about-finished projects! Here is one of the finished to share — it is the slouched tuva hat knit with my very own handspun! and a link for all you ravelers! I think I will add an increase after the ribbing on the next one I knit for an even slouchier effect.
D#1 called this morning with some terrible news —- a huge fire in town, luckily no one was hurt and it was not her apartment, but two of her friends are displaced. : (
Mr. Boar and I have been busy updating the den and office. New carpet, paint, lighting, molding, railing, ceiling fan. Since we are do-it-ourselvesers this has been a three week long undertaking. The house has been in complete disarray – which is a situation I do not usually handle with grace.
Well, the carpet was installed this morning – thankfully Boar does not insist that we do that portion of the job! Here is a quick video of the dogs reaction – and yes, I am on pee-on-the-new-carpet patrol!
pattern: Hemlock Ring Blanket
yarn: Cascade Ecological Wool
This was a great project – fun and quick with a big wow factor! (I just reread that and it sounds kind of sexy!) Anyway, it is a beautiful blanket, but I would like you to consider something even more beautiful – sublime really:
D#2 & Boyfriend helping to block it!
