There have been goings-on here at our house! We have been visited by the Fed-Ex and UPS fairies :) We got our order from Interweave Press, and SWTC with such beautifully tempting books and yarn! We love books at our house anyway, and to see so many shiny, brand new ones all at once is a rare treasure! We are finding ourselves inspired over and over again no matter where we go in our house! So many projects just waiting to be born out of all this, I can't wait to see what happens! We still have an awe and reverence for the room with all the yarn in it...it's like a cathedral, lol.
We are still working on the shop, albeit not as speedily as when Uncle Paul was here :) We are planning on spraying texture onto the walls this weekend, so keep your fingers crossed and hope with us that this is the last time you will see all this wood! The seams have all been taped and mudded (that is a word, right?) and now it's just waiting for the weekend and lots of elbow grease. We know we have that with so many elbows around here! ;)
I am almost done with my Maylie pattern. It's so fun to work with new yarn and all new patterns! Of course, I am knitting the smallest size since it's a display (and doesn't have to fit anyone in particular) and it's moving along very quickly. I love this little sweater! Those diamonds will have embroidered flowers in them and there will be matching ones on the sleeves. I am knitting it in the round, and you can see more details at my ravelry project page here.
