First of all, thank you for all your advice. I really like the look of wood for my sewing room, but I was afraid it was going to be cold. I thought I’d like the feel of carpet better.
So what am I going to do? I’m putting in wood and I’m going to look for a runner. A carpet runner is the perfect size to put on the floor the length of my countertop workspace.
The wood is chestnut, and it’s quite a bit harder than oak. The photo isn’t quite accurate. There is less yellow in my wood. Don’t you just love my floral carpet???
It’s contest time!!! My 100th post is coming up. (And you’re still reading all about my
extremely boring scintilating life.) So, leave a comment and tell me:
1. What you like about the blog.
2. What you’d like to see or hear about in the blog.
(If you don’t like the blog, please don’t tell me. I have 5 kids that love to tell me what they don’t like. That’s enough to keep me humble, thanks!)
The prize will be yarn. Duh! I’ll tell you in the 99th post (the next one) what the prize is. I’d tell you now, but I really haven’t thought about it. You have until April 1 at 10 PM Central to leave a comment. I must be a fool to let you comment on April Fools Day.
Has there been knitting? Not much. Last night I finally sat down and knit for several hours. My legs were still so stiff, I didn’t feel like moving any more. I worked on my stealth project. I’ll show you the yarn but what it is and who it’s for is top secret.
This yarn is Tempted Glam Grrl, color Eclipse. It’s a sock yarn that’s merino, silk, nylon, and silver. Yes that’s real silver.
I’m not sure I’m loving the project, but we’ll see. You want to know where I got it. Why, at Loops, of course.
Now I have another dilemma. My first Year of Lace project showed up a couple of hours ago. Since people are complaining about spoilers, you can look right here if you want to see my yarn wound. If you don’t want to see it, don’t look!!!! The color is is little off in the photo, but I thought it was hilarious that it’s the exact color of my nail polish. Is that God telling me to start on it? That’s my dilemma. Do I start the project, or do I finish my Waves in the Square Shawl? Guess what I’m thinking?
Let me just say one more thing, and then I’m off to
start my new shawl finish my Waves in the Square Shawl. I’m sick of reality. So, therefore, I’m going to take a bunch of my UFO’s off of the sidebar and put them back to sleep. I don’t want to look at that long list every time I post. I’m fully aware of all of the crap beautiful projects that I have going. So, no, I didn’t finish a gazillion things. I’m just deleting them! I like my reality!
