Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Moving day …


Yesterday with a lot of help, H’s old and very heavy bench saw made the trip across the driveway from his shop to the new basement. It will be handy there, and there are a couple of other wood-working tools that will be joining it later.

Amber & Maggie were kind of wound up the other day – I think Amber was daring Maggie to come on down 😉

The sweater is progressing nicely—the body is mostly done, mainly sleeves and borders to go. I don’t always enjoy knitting cotton, but this yarn (Mirasol Samp’a; 100% cotton, 102 yds/50g per ball) is so nice and soft that I’m loving it!

  1. Yes, but is the kitchen completely operational?? I need facts on the important stuff;-P Love the pic of the “girlz”. And, your sweater is gonna be some kind of gorgeous. Have a great wet weekend, Joy!!

  2. Wet weekend for you, too? 😀 Moving is exciting!

    Oh, your sweater looks so lovely!

  3. Did you think you would ever see the day? Moving is so exciting! The last 10% is the most difficult but you don’t have to clear out the old place for new residents so you escape the pressure. I’m so happy THE BIG DAY is finally here.

  4. Wow, that is a huge bench saw. I’ve been living with one in our basement for 10 years, along with the rest of Jack’s workshop. I’ve gotten used to the noise; the only thing that disturbs me is hammering. Otherwise, go to it.

    Good looking sweater.
