The windows are DONE! It took them three full days to complete everything. The last day was quite trying for all of us. It was just two guys (instead of the 5 in the beginning) who did the finishing works on all windows and doors. The only thing I'm not thrilled about is the clean up. They didn't do a good job with that. There's nails, little pieces of glass, plastic, and cigarette butts in the front yard.
We've decided to take it easy for the rest of the week, before we continue with our preparations for the floor guys.
I've transfered my photos from my desktop to the laptop, so I can still show you handspun yarn I've finished, as well as doggy pictures, and some finished knits. The desktop computer will be put away until I've got my new place in my new room hopefully soon.
I'm getting used to the laptop, but would still like to have a mouse instead of this pad. Anyway, here's my handspun yarn for this week:
It's made from FatCatKnits superwash merino, two strands of "Violet Blue", and one strand Mixed Blessings purple colorway (Polwarth). It's a 3-ply yarn, about worsted weight.
Since I don't have my Ashford Traditional at hand (it has the jumbo flyer on), I had to ply this yarn in two skeins. There's only a total of ~ 163yds. It's also a little over plied.
I've used "Violet Blues" colorway last Handspun Friday, but played with the colors and made a 2-ply yarn, and it looked very different from this one.
It's not my favorite yarn I've ever made, but it's O.K.
The boys say Hi!
The pups are a little crazy right now. There's still no way we can use the back yard. Even though the guys clean up at the end of the day, there's still so much stuff around where the pups could hurt themselves, so it's walks, and lots of running around in the house for now.
At least they didn't have to spend yesterday in their crates. They manage to tire themselves out quite nicely.
At one time Denny was holding on to a Frisbee, while Happy was dragging him through the hall. Denny was on his back, and didn't mind at all, but didn't let go either.
Later the same evil pup took the opportunity to drink MY tea! I thought, locked in the living room with lots of toys around, he would be good for a few minutes, until I came back with Happy from his pee break. He could even watch us through the window. I forgot that there was a mug with my tea on the coffee table. As I came back, Denny had his front paws on the table slurping away happily. He got about half of it, didn't spill a drop. Black tea with milk, who knew he would like that?
It's his own fault for being stuck in the crate so much, since I can't trust him at all. O.K. he's still not even 4 month old.
Today I wanted to get some time to predraft some fiber. I didn't want them to be stuck in the crate again, so I gave them a cardboard lid to shred. They had quite a lot of fun, and it took me only 2 minutes to pick the mess up after. I didn't take a picture, but you all know how shredded cardboard looks like, right?
Oh that darn laptop. I always hit a key which does things I don't want it to do. So I had to write this post twice! Argh! Anyway, have a nice weekend you all!
