Under Construction

Image
We're in our 7th week of serious house renovations. No kitchen or laundry expected for another 3 weeks, furnace intermittently conking out. I'm still wearing night braces for my ankles and I'm still walking downstairs crabwise. I am, in a word no, make that 2 words - fed up!


As if that weren't enough, I find myself knitting another pink baby blanket following Sharon Miller's Cobweb Crepe pattern as a base. Yarn? 100% vintage acryllic of course, Paton's Fairytale fingering. I estimate that it's from the early 80's.


I knit my first sweater from a Paton's acryllic yarn in 1968 or so. My daughter was still wearing it in the 90's. Good stuff. 


My concentration level is very low. I'm saving my wits to reflect on key questions like, should we run the fan or not? Why is there an electric outlet in this cupboard. What were we thinking? 



So, forgive me if my postings are spotty for a while longer. Things are a bit of a mess around here.
