house obsessed

just checking in to say, well, nothing. The gloves are coming along, starting the fingers, but the pattern is screwed up and the directions are wrong. Didn't figure that one out for a while..... Thinking about doing some holiday knitting, and wondering if it's just too late. Can you say "gift card?" The whole house thing has turned into an excercise in frustration, with contrators who don't show, and bad weather. We're thinking now that there WON'T be a turkey day move, just not enough time for all they have to do and the speed they seem to be doing it at. ARGH!! You'd think I'd take my frustration out on knitting, but it's all packed up. We were supposed to move nearly a moth ago, and this state of half-packed is driving me crazy. We're READY to go!

I'm still here

I know, I know, I've been horribly bad in neglecting my poor blog. (and my knitting) Over the summer, SO many things were going on, including the building of our new house. The house is still not finished, although we can ALMOST see the finish line now. We're hoping for a pre turkey day move in. That might include having the family all grab a chair and a corner of the table and taking it over there so we can have dinner. It's both a blessing and a curse that we're only moving about 100 yards away. Easy to move stuff, and also easy to KEEP stuff. I HAVE been knitting a bit. Mostly on a pair of gloves for my sister. They're almost impossible to take a pic of though, since they're a dark navy blue wollemeise with cables. They just don't show up. The 9 month rainy season has started here now, so I promise, they'll be a bunch more knitting. (as soon as I can find my yarn from the move) In the mean time, you'll just have to settle for yogi. He's very happy 'cause he got a clean bill of health from the vet (who also said she thought he's pretty). The world just looks better upside down and with your belly in the air. We should all try this!
