Yesterday was a rainy, cold day. I refuse to turn on the heating for the whole house, when we just live in the basement. It's 14C down here, and my fingers, and toes are cold. I'm wearing my Maia fingerless mittens, and wool socks of course, and a jacket, and have some tea, but it's not enough. My nose is still cold, and I believe it's going to be a runny nose soon. Well, actually I don't have my tea anymore. I spilled it all over my desk, what fun. My fingers are just to clumsy when cold. I'm a little pissed off, grumpy whatever you call it. Renovations are still not done yet. There was an unpleasant delay because of the back splash tiles I've chosen. They are designer tiles coming from California. They are glass mosaic, and our guy had never used those before. I agree, they are almost paper thin, and hard to work with, but OH COME ON! Naturally it costs extra to get them done. Grout is still missing, but should be done today. Since they are way behind, I had to reschedule the cleaners, who were going to help me clean the whole house. I was about to hire some help with the furniture moving, but don't know exactly WHEN they should be coming either. The renos were scheduled to be done mid September. It's going to be close to the end of October, hopefully? We didn't expect to need warm clothes, so we packed everything away, and of course the boxes are the ones way in the back of storage, with tons of other stuff in front of them. I'm not even going to try to get to them.
I have been spinning, so here's something to show you:
This was Spinning Awesome Good! or SAG for short Fiber club colorway "Intuition". It's 4oz BFL, 2-ply, worsted weight, 149yds. It's up for grabs in my shop.
This is also SAG fiber, but I won this in the monthly draw, back in August. I asked Shelby for something green, with red spots, and she delivered this beautiful fiber! It's superwash BFL, 4oz, 2-ply, 177yds. This one's for myself. I've cast on an easy cowl, but had to frog it. The edge was curling in something fierce. I didn't think blocking would do the trick, so I ripped it out, and started over.
See how the edge folds in? Well I wasn't too far into the project anyway, but still kept going even though I had my doubts.
We are going to go on a day trip with the pups sometime this weekend, as long as the weather is not too bad. Need to get out of this place and see something else for a change, before I go stir crazy.
