busy and tired...

wow. i haven't posted in how long? i'm lame. sorry! i have been knitting alot! let's see...

evie's pinwheel is almost done, i'm just binding off. i ended up doing a seed stitch ruffle. i just knit into the front and back of each stitch and then knit a few rows in seed stitch. it looks really cute. i'm doing a picot bind off with the picot every 5 stitches. it's pretty cute. FO pics soon!

my fetchings are finished and in use! i love them! fetching from knitty i modified the pattern a little. added some length to the thumbs and added two more cable rows to the top to add length. we're in minnesota people! i need coverage! i think i mentioned before that this was my first every foray into cables and can i say? hello! so freaking easy! and then the next day i learned how to do it without a cable needle, awesome! LOVE LOVE LOVE cables! they look so hard but are so easy!

i've been wearing them for a few weeks now. i LOVE them! yarn is rowan cashsoft. yummy! i've started another pair for my mom, rowan cashsoft but in a lighter blue. but now she tells me that she wants actual fingers, like fingerless gloves... so that pattern is kinda being modified but i'm not so sure how to do it... anyway...

completed fetchings!

sorry for the inside pics, i hate winter. no opportunities to take pictures in natural light! stupid work keeping me out until it's super dark. but cori, what about weekends? why can't you take pics on the weekend?

well on weekends... we've been soooo busy. busy doing what? we have a new townhouse!!!

it will be finished in march/april. it looks like this right now.

our townhouse this week!

check out flickr if you want to see what we chose for cabinets, carpet, countertops, flooring and all that!

Love the modifications on Fetching. I was unhappy with the length on my first one but didn't try adding length (duh!). Beautiful! I'll have to try your idea.

Your Fetchings look lovely! I agree on the cables - they are *so* easy and make people exclaim over your work like nothing else :-)

How exciting on the new home - congratulations!
