i sent the flyer for the lys tour
off to the printer last week (if you click on the map link you can see a bit of my handywork). i also completed some work on a family friend's wedding invitation so i no longer have any deadlines!
so this lack of deadlines was supposed to lead to some completed knitting. but it hasn't. i am in a tiny funk, just trying to complete a couple socks and find my latest inspiration.
and wouldn't you know it but i had to cast on for another chevron scarf (this is my 6th color combo attempt!). i was lucky enough to win some str (peaseblossom) from wanda
. it is now paired up with watermelon tourmaline.
the colors are working really well together. it is still a bit too purple for me, but as soon as i got going i realized that this would be perfect for a friend of mine's birthday. she would love these colors. so on i go! i will however keep working on a combo for myself (currently i am in love with this combo
by larissa over at stitch marker).
in other non-knitting randomness, i found an awning solution for my deck (i think). i discovered offset patio umbrellas this week and hope to get one ordered if i can't find them locally this weekend. i also managed to move my concrete hearth, which was not flush with my fireplace, but in doing so dropped it on a finger that is now very numb and very sore. 2 ginormous trees were taken down in my condo complex yesterday and the kit kats enjoyed watching the (loud) process. i am hoping this will allow a little more sun in the morning, but won't know until we actually get sun.
i also purchased a matching teapot and mugs for my existing french press from my lys
which also happens to be a tea shop. my payment for the wedding invitation work was in the form of a gift certificate to the shop so it didn't cost me much. i just love the chartreuse color.
i also wanted to mention that canidae was the food of choice when it came to my kit kats. they are currently on the felidae dry and wet (although the wet is getting mixed reviews). their website states that all ingredients are US grown and these foods do not contain the bad ingredients involved in the recall. i can finally sleep at night people! thanks for the help in finding this company! currently they are snuggled up together but earlier cooper was doing his usual routine of carrying his yarn ball around the toilet numerous times getting it all tangled up. he just LOVES yarn. he will carry any ball, any size around if he can get to it. one day i'll catch him in the act and share with you.
ok, happy friday all. i am going to get back to sending out some spreadsheets for work. oh joy.
