Now Tony's talking about putting a texture on the ceiling to hide the spots that had to be patched. We'll see. If we do, we'll probably do it the weekend we resurface the floors--which will be soon!
We've also been making progress on the bedroom upstairs. We still have a wall/doorframe to build and one to tear out but we've gotten the far wall (the one that had the built-in) almost ready to paint with primer. I am going to try to tinker with it this afternoon if I can sneak away from the kids. : )
For Christmas last year I knit my friend Bethany a soft, brightly colored hat with a huge puffy ball on top. Her mother Nancy is blind and says she loves it and could I make one for her in gray and red. Her coat is gray and red is her favorite color. I got a lovely dark red/cranberry color yarn and some gray fun-fur. I am knitting the ribbing for the cuff of the hat with both yarns, then I will discontinue the fun-fur and just use the red for the body. I am planning cables and other patterns so it has a lot of texture and is "finger friendly." This way Nancy can "see" it easily by feeling it.
I am starting on the 2nd sock of the 2nd pair of socks for Dad for Christmas. I haven't finished the first yet, but have knit it from toe to heel. I am going to run out of the orange varigated yarn so I put it on different needles to hold and I'm beginning the second sock so that at least they will look the same, haha.
I have so many projects that need doing before Christmas, I'm starting to get a little overwhelmed! Need to knit:
Nancy a matching scarf
Summer a hat
Rush a hat
Lily a hat
Jeremiah a fish hat
Finish these socks for Dad
Need to make:
3 more large, pleated fabric purses
22 more flannel/batting "sandwich" squares to add to our queen sized flannel shaggy, making it king sized.
A couple more regular and funky purses like I put in my shop, by the 1st week of November, so I can take them to craft shows.
I think I need to make a pot of coffee.
