I did knit yesterday, but I ripped it out three times, and still got stuck at row 9 of the test knit. I shot off an email to Alexandra, and this morning, after reading her instructions, and giving it another try, I found out that I made the same mistake 3 times. Does that tell you how TIRED I was, but I was so knitting deprived, I really wanted to knit some.
Next time I'll sleep over it, before I cry for help. So, since it's only about 15 rows in now, there's no photo of it yet. But ...
Here's the boys. Before Denny is a grown up, I wanted to show you these pictures:
I took those photos early May.
This week it looks like Happy has decided to NOT take all the crap anymore, Denny is dishing out. It's funny to see how fast Denny backs off, when Happy means business. He should have done so from the start.
Today we are taking the day off. We've got some errands to run, and later in the afternoon, we'll be picking up Hannah from the airport.
We, meaning my son, and his friend, moved the heavy furniture into the garage yesterday.
(How do you spot a true dog lover? My sons friend had a piece of my berries cake during a break, and Denny was a bad boy, jumping up and licking the piece, before the friend even took a bite. He just removed the edge, where Denny's tongue has been, and ate the rest of the cake. :o) )
Pictures are still on the walls, tennis balls, which were under the sofas, and lots of other chew toys are sprinkled all over the house. The dogs have a field day with all the indoor space to run around right now. There's no comfortable place anymore. I've still got my bed in my bedroom, it's funny how all, more or less, empty rooms have an echo now. I'll be sleeping two more nights in my bed, then I'll have to move downstairs. We've got confirmation of the construction crew arriving on Tuesday morning.
We've still got the kitchen to pack up, and little things all over the house, but we'll get that done with at least Monday to spare. I hope Hannah will help, so it will all go faster.
The air in the walk-out basement is a lot fresher now, since we've got a dehumidifier, and an air purifier running non stop for a week now. I've got to empty the dehumidifier three times a day, which is kind of disgusting.
Well, I'm off to do some errands, and hopefully get some knitting done on my test knit shawl, without making stupid mistakes!
