Friday was not a typical day for me. I judged projects at the
I went home, switch clothes and gears.
And what have I been knitting? Well, I’ve got Cromarty on the needles, I’ve got a Louisa Harding lace pullover in the works that I’m itching to work on, of course I’ve got a pair of socks on the needles, and I haven’t touched any of them in two weeks because I’m still smocking. I’m bicraftual! I’m almost done with the embroidery for Claire’s dress, then on to Anna’s. Fortunately the assembly of these is significantly simpler than last year’s Vogue pattern. That was a killer. And when I’m done, rather than work on any of the three UFOs, I’ll probably cast on for the Alpine Lace now that I’ve got a nice, sharp set of Addi lace needles and I wound all 800yds of my lacewt alpaca by hand. (said DH, 800 yds? I replied in the afirmative. He thought I misspoke. No, there truly is 800 yds of yarn in that ball.) (This reminds me of Stephanie’s talk of “trigger words.” For those who know what I’m talking about, mine are “How much yarn do you need?” Never ask me that.)
We haven’t gotten many more bites on the house. We’re nearing serious nail biting time. Our realtor failed to get the paperwork in to the newspaper for a listing today, and next Sunday is Easter of course. *sigh* I know the house is going to sell, but until it does we’re going to be jumpy wondering how long we’re going to have to carry two mortgages. We close in May. Wanna buy a house?
