The Remodel and Knitting

The Craft Room is coming along, I've got the walls painted. I'm not sure about the color but it will look better I think when everything is in the room. As you can see it is yellow, Tony thinks it's a little too bright. I don;'t need my sunglasses but I don't need to turn the light on every time I walk into the room. 

Dad and Tony have started to put in the floor, they have pushed me out of the way. They won't let me use power tools not that I blame them, I seem to have trouble with none power tools. So I guess I just keep out of the way, I just wish they would move faster at it. I want to move in with all my yarn. I want to dump it on the middle of the floor just to see how much I have. Then.............maybe I will stop buying so much if I see it all at one time. Doubt it.

My Knitting: I cast on the Walk in the Woods Kerchief, from the Woolgirl Sock Club, this is a fun pattern I have run into a small snag and I'm not understanding the pattern so have put it down for now and am working on another.

I am loving this pattern and the yarn. It is called Brandywine Shawl by Rosemary Hill, the yarn is from one of my favorites, Zen Yarn Garden, Serenity 20. It is a merino, cashmere, nylon blend need I say more. I love knitting with it, I need more of this yarn, Roxanne dyes some of the most wonderful colors and I have lots of her yarn in my stash.

My travel project is a simple pair of socks done toe up I'm using Opal in their Rainforest's series Tiger I'm not working real hard on them they are just my travel socks so I'll work on them as I go from here to there and have a few minutes to work on them.

Monday I am going to buy my spinning wheel and I can't wait. The day won't get here soon enough. NW Handspun Yarns is having a sale, you get to draw a coupon for 10%, 15% or 20% off and if I get the 10% off it will pay for the tax. So I'm going to go shopping.
 So till I get my wheel and put it together and take pictures to post, enjoy the sun.
Keep those sticks aclickn'. Happily knitting, Bye.

That is going to be a heavenly craft room! I almost missed your note about getting a wheel, but when I caught it all I could picture was your cheery craft room with a wheel and loads of sock yarn spread out.

I've been feeling the urge to spread out all my yarn and the floor and re-organize it too, so I completely understand.
