I actually have been doing some knitting thru all this with the house and financial worries. It’s helped keep me sane. The knitting has been slow going because I hadn’t been able to concentrate for longer than a few minutes at a time. But I can show you what little I do have done.
First it a pair of Thuja socks for my mom for christmas. I had orginally thought about doing braided cable soks from More Sensational Knitted Socks. But the yarn is just too dark to show the cable work. I figured I would just go with something simple and this pattern works great with the yarn.
Next up is a 4 corners dishcloth. Pattern can be found on Abigals blog- 1870 Pearl.(Link on the right.)It is for a swap I am in I won’t say which one incase my pal should happen upon my blog. I am using the Cascade cotton I got from the DDS contest I won last month.
And I am excited I got my conformation yesterday and I am in SP11. Yeah! Also I am waiting for the Knit 1 Tea 2 swap to open up. I just love swaps especially when they involve tea and yarn.
But there is still more to go.Well today the appraiser came to look over the house for the refinance process. I worked my butt off for hours to get things looking decent. It took him all of 20 minutes to look things over and then say we’ll get the paper work done and you should here from the bank sometime next week. Say what!? That just means more waiting. Let me tell I am getting tired of playing the waiting game. It’s been 2 weeks now since we started this whole process and I am so ready for it to be over. But I know it takes time to get these things done so I must be patient even if I don’t wanna be.The wheels of progress sure can move slowly sometimes.
My package from the DDS Swap arrived on Tuesday but I just didn’t have time to post it til now.
My swap partner was Jennifer. She sent me a wonderful package. The dishcloth she sent were her very first ones. I am honored to be the receipient of such lovely dishcloths and two matching coasters and in nice bright colors too. She sent me two skeins of Tahki Cotton Classic 100% mercerised cotton.Also she included the patterns for them so I can make more if I want. And she is a girl after my own heart in my package was English breakfast tea, which I have already sampled and Hershey’s chocolate sticks, sampled of course. Then I got the cute little birdie pen, a jar which I will be putting candle in and using on my patio, some cute charms which I think I will make into magnets for the fridge, a handy post it note pad , some yummy smelling soap and lotion which is aldreay in my purse. But the bestet and favoritest thing she sent me was these wonderful stitch markers. My very own set of Buffalo Sticth markers that is. I LOVE them. Thank you Jennifer for a great package!!!
