Knitting, Sock Kit, and Remodel

I am alive and work hasn't killed me yet. Had some very busy days and I have lived. We are having a 1 year anniversary steak special next week, Wednesday and Thursday. It should be a lot of fun, so if you are in the area and want a great steak dinner at a great price stop by at the Nuthouse Grill.

My Knitting: I have finished the shawl that I was working on and here is the picture.  This was a very easy pattern, , here is the link on Ravelry this pattern is by Caroline Lang. I used Noro Kureyon Sock yarn I used almost all the skein of yarn the color is S233. I included the link if you have joined Ravelry, you really should if you love to knit or crochet. This site is wonderful, there is hundreds of patterns that are FREE or you can purchase patterns. But the thing I like is that if you find a pattern you like and want to see what other people have knit it in you can there is just so many wonderful things you can do at this site. SO JOIN.
I working on a shawl for Mom, she picked out a yarn out of my stash, Ruby Red Slippers. I have a very hard time finding a pattern that looks good in this yarn. I hope that I have found one, we will see. I'm also working on a test knit pattern that is beautiful and is taking my time. I also have two other pairs of socks on the needles so my knitting is keeping me busy.

I have to show you this sock kit that I got. This kit is gorgeous!!! It is titled Tea Party. Jen from Woolgirl designed this kit and here is what we got.

This kit as I said was GREAT JUST TO DIE FOR.

Remodel. The boys are gone so I have decided to redo there room. I want to document my work and show you what I'm doing I want to do this room by myself. I know there is things I can't do. I will need help with the drywall (putting it up) but I really want to see what I can do by  myself. So here is where I'm at. Please excuse the picture I don't know what the circles are but it gives you an idea of the one wall that I'm laboring over. It is the wall of cork and it goes. I've got it scraped off and the mess out of the room. Now here is where I got stumped, the glue. The wall is covered with it. Talked with Dad and we decided to cover it with dry wall. I've got it bought the chunks off the wall. I'm going to mark out the studs and hopefully get help getting the drywall up. The to tape and mud and sand. I want to paint the room yellow. I'm going to put down bamboo floor. This will be my craft room so I can't wait to see how I do.
That's it for now so keep those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting, Bye
