But I AM Knitting



Just in case you're getting a tad bored of the reno (I'm not!) I thought I'd let you know that I'm still knitting. I'm working on a replacement Big Needle Wrap that I shrank in the wash earlier this year. You can see the original here, on my 100th blog post. The colours on the new one are slightly different, but not by much. The original was a wee bit more violet-y purple, the new one is, hmmm...., grape-y?

I like it, that's all that matters.

The first wrap was knit up in a couple of evenings while in Dublin, this one is taking MUCH longer. Perhaps I'm distracted...

Today marks a momentous occasion - the return of my first born. Elly's plane gets in tonight after the better part of a year in Dublin. In honour of her return to this city, and in particular, to the Dirty Old City Lot that is currently our home; The Pogues...

Heya! Was that a wood stove or an electric fireplace?

So with the stove gone, are you ordering in, or barbecueing(sp?) every night?

Your remaining kitchen area is tiny! I agree with one of the previous comentators that this probably calls for a lot of meals out. Yippee!!
