September 9, 2007….I’m still alive. Barely.

 My move date is set for 9/24 & 9/25.  Will the house be ready by then?  Not sure.  The contractor was fired a few weeks ago and my DH is doing ALL of it.  He can truly fix anything better than it was before it was broken, but there is only one of him and a ton left to do.  One of these days I’ll take pictures of the updated work.

I have been knitting a few evenings a week, but the knitting time is decreasing every day.  My days and evenings are usually spent packing and moving what I can to do the new house, plus playing “step-n-fetch-it” for all of the things that have to be bought, which are a lot.  It isn’t exactly the type of shopping I like to do.  I will have packers and movers, but there is so much I don’t want to the movers to touch.  The kitchen is the only room that I can put anything into right now.  At least the kitchen will be set up fairly well before I move in.

I did finish the fur blanket and hopefully will be writing a pattern for it in a few weeks.  It isn’t a hard pattern to write, I’m just not in the mood at the moment. It is really stunning in person and incredibly soft.  I also started another design using some Fiesta Starburst LaBoheme in Madrid that I have had for a very long time and always wanted to make something out of.  So far it is coming along really well.

I made the pillow below for my DH’s birthday out of the dog yarn.  His favorite color is teal, which is why it is trimmed in it.  I used Touch Me for the trim and stuffed it full of poly foam.  The dog fur was fun to knit with and the pillow is really soft.

I’ll blog more when I can.  Please hang in there with me, and do check back.  I haven’t disappeared completely.
