Next up

Way back when our counters were being measured I came home to find we had new floors going in. We had been told this would be one of the last things they did but nope they came early!

It started to resemble a real kitchen only without the plumbing. I missed plumbing!

You see I am planning on making this my baking cabinet. See the sparkle in my eye? I'm dreaming of tasty baked goods.

The saga continued

When we last left our intrepid home owners the kitchen was kaput!

Every day was an adventure. What was worked on today? One day we came home and we had upper cabinets and a wider entrance way. It was a very exciting day.

The next day we came home we had lower cabinets.

Then the cabinets magically sprouted handles. 

Next they sprouted curious kittens.

OK so the kitten was not from the cabinets, he was just allowed to do a wee bit of exploring.

I'm not sure which I loved the most, my dining room table taking up most of the living room or all the microwave meals. I think I exceeded my allowed salt intake a few days. At least I did not feel like we were burning through all our money by eating out all the time.

That is one heck of a cluster. 

Next time we get measured for counter tops. I can hardly wait.

Socks on a Cat

Well since I can never seem to pin down D for his sock pictures, I called upon his stunt double Gustav.

First up we have Bittersweet Woolery's Frog Prince socks. With all the winter we were having I decided I needed something bright. Oh boy did these fit the bill. Good thing they were in my purse when I had to wait at the service station for a new battery. Winter killed off my old one.

Now the astute among you will note that the socks are in fact two shades the one on the left being more yellow while the one on the right is more green. I swear to you they were knit from the same skein of yarn. Now D has some totally unique super bright socks. Since he really is my Frog Prince.

Next up we have Gus modeling the first Pining for You sock from Socks that Rock Mediumweight. 
I did a nice little cable down one side since it adds a bit of excitement to a lovely plain-ish yarn color. 

This was not a warm day so Gus was not opposed to having wooly things draped over him. 

Finally my sock was still on the needles for the photo shoot and that does not make for a happy kitty knitting model so Jack nosed in to prove my knitting is kitty approved.

Now up on the needles for D is Mt. Rutsen Studio Margarita socks. I was saving this yarn for the dark winter days but somehow it missed the rotation twice now. I could not think of it sitting till next year, and since the grass may be uncovered it still is not growing yet. This color shall amuse me in the mean time. Totally not in my normal color selections but I am adoring it so far. Now if I could just find a cable to highlight the color.

I'm going to go feed the cats then look through a few knitting books
