Thank y’all so much for your kind words and encouragement about our Painting Project. I have a few answers and follow-ups to share today.
First, y’all were not the only ones to notice Dissent, drying on the floor.
It’s now safely folded up in my closet, awaiting a day I put on “real clothes” (I think the last time I did that was Thanksgiving?) for a modeled shot.
Bonny asked about “before” and I do have a pretty recent photo of the play roomfrom just after I packed up all the yarn and fabric.
When we put the room back together, we switched the bookcases (and moved that middle piece to the basement) and the desk. Yesterday Marc hung the racks for me and today I unpacked the bins. This room is finished for now (one down, a bunch to go!)
Most of my single-skein stash is hanging on the wall (and single-ball stash is mostly in that fabric bin sitting by the bookcase). The rest of my stash is loose on the top two shelves. and you know, I have to say, having it on display like this is probably the best motivation to “shop my stash”. I bought every single skein up there with a plan in mind for a sweater, a shawl, mittens, something!
Also, I’m really glad I could fit all of it up there. and it’s only because the 14 balls of Léttlopi are now in my knitting bag. I am ready to cast on Great Love!I was actually ready to cast on yesterday. until I checked my Ravelry notes for Big Love (same yarn and stitch pattern – I wasn’t planning to swatch) and … oops! … I didn’t record the needle I used! I went back through my blog, my journals, and nope, couldn’t find any mention anywhere. I did, however, find a clue in this WIP photo.I am pretty sure that’s a metal tip on the Knitter’s Pride needle that’s peeking out. I’m also pretty sure I only have one needle that could be. a size 7 32″ Karbonz. I hope I’m right! and I will do a better job going forward with my project notes 🙂
Happy Wednesday, friends … just two more days til the weekend!!
