Ya--we're still chugging away at the kitchen. We were supposed to seal the walls with primer last night, but some of the wall joint compound was not dry yet, so tonight after we go to a party where I will be a minority among Swedes, we will prime the walls. This weekend will be VERY exciting. We will move the IKEA cabinets I've been building in! It's going to be so rewarding filling up our kitchen. We are on a deadline here to have them in place for the countertops to be measured Monday.
I've only been able to knit a little this week, when I went to my knitting group. I really need to get a mindless project going, I can't work very efficiently on color-knitting when it's such a social setting. I had to check my work 6 times before moving on. I'm kicking myself for making my color choices the opposite of the chart. Black dots = white and White squares = red. NOT INTUITIVE!
I'm thinking of doing this hat from Knitty
next. I was turned off by the colors, but after seeing it knit in a different set of colors, I'm more interested. I think I'll be able to get at my Cascade 220 stash on this one too.
Also! I got my first laptop last night. I've actually never even bought a computer before, they've all been hand-me-downs. I was able to sneak on a weak wireless signal last night and do the Windows update, but otherwise, an empty PC is pretty boring. I just need to track down our external hard drive and get a wireless router.
Thanks for the compliments on my tiles! We are going to put down the grout Monday I think. Then we can't walk on them. We'll have to go out on the deck, down the yard stairs and into the basement door to get downstairs for a day or two.
