Getting Stuff Done…

So, it’s been bugging me lately that I had so many things half done, or almost done…basically I’m bugged by the ‘not done’ part! I’ve managed to finish the Thermal sweater from Knitty (pictures to follow soon) and the Selbuvotter gloves are finished (last night). Ok, so that leaves me with the Frost Flowers and Leaves edging to complete. Not too bad. I feel so much more organized with fewer things on the go. My son’s gansey has yet to be ripped out and redone, but since that has to be started completely over, it isn’t *really* half done!

I have to get back outside and work on the yard today. It’s garbage day tomorrow and I ran out of those recycle bags….there is a pile of sod I dug up waiting to be shaken and put into bags. Not fun. I want it done though, if it rains on the pile, I’m scared it will become impossible or really, really, really hard!

Housework seems to be in a holding pattern, lol, hasn’t become any messier or any cleaner over the last few days….though I should likely be carpet cleaning. I swear the dogs have ‘called’ different things to wreck around here…the little one has definitely called the carpets! I had every stain out just a few weeks ago, and want to keep it that way. At this point, the Daisy dog is winning.

Good morning 🙂

I’m still working on ‘Thermal’ from Knitty. I’ve reached the point where I seperate for the placket. Almost to the armholes!

I was busy this week working on our front walkway. I built it from rock we salveged from my mom’s falling down barn. I think it looks much better. I’ll try and post some pics soon. I wish I had been thinking and done the ‘before and after’ thing. Now I have to find some plants to plant between the rocks. So far I have irish moss….a perennial I got at the local walmart. The plant place was closed….am sure they will have more selection.

I’ve got an urge to knit the Sanquhar gloves after seeing the pattern while reading at the coffeeshop. Of course my lys doesn’t carry any dpns smaller than the size 0. I printed the pattern anyways…

This is *one* of the things I currently have on the needles. It is ‘Thermal’ from knitty.com. I’m using two different colours of sock it to me ‘Harlequin’ and changing colour every four rows.

The sleeves should be a challenge as they will want to do the self striping, jaquard thing that the wool is designed to do. I think I’ll try working with lots of little balls to create a more soft and pooling look like I’ve got in the body.

I’m so excited. Can’t wait to wear it!
