So, it’s that time of year again. That time of year when I think (in my typical Pollyana way) that I can make a couple of Christmas presents for the guys in my life (by Christmas), as well as knit on my current UFOs, finish a couple of custom orders, get ready for my huge holiday jewelry open house, update my Etsy store, and all the typical school stuff for the Bug, not to mention keeping this house fairly dust bunny-free and stocked with stuff to munch on.
And now I’ve upped the ante like, 1000%. We’re gonna start working on remodeling this old Eichler (which, coincidentally as old as CR and I both). God knows it needs it. Those of you who’ve been here know well the drawer with the wine corks as pulls. That’s only the beginning of it. Along with a (mostly) new kitchen, we need a bathroom, new floors, new electrical, and a new roof. Sheesh.
I must be insane.
Well, at least I’ll have my fiber to keep me distracted when I’m desperate for a distraction.
Actually, I must admit I’m pretty excited about the prospect of making this house look the way it’s supposed to look. It’ll be great when it’s finished. The thing that’s daunting is packing up my life and finding someplace to put it. Ah well. It’ll all be worth it.
The February Girlie sweater for Bug is finally starting to look like a sweater. Problem is, here’s where I start getting bored with most every sweater I start. Here’s where I need to dig in and push through the malaise to prevent having yet another UFO.
See, here are the things I’d like to start, two for Christmas, one for me:
A “Smokin'” Sweater for CR,
An”Eleanor” shawl for Poppa,
