I've been bad at blogging. Sorry!
This past weekend we went sailing with some good sailing friends. It was a great time, even when it started raining. We stayed at Eagle Harbor; I visited Churchmouse yarns and resisted buying anything since my projects are all in slo-mo right now. While there, I saw a nice sweater and have been inspired to design my own sweater very soon.
I did manage to finish my Anemoi mitten after ripping back so it wouldn't be so long. Last Wednesday while at my knitting group, I came to realize that the hat will be way too huge, so it has been re-assigned to be lengthened and felted into a bag. I have a feeling that my washing machine is going to have strong felting action, so I'll have to really keep an eye on it so it doesn't turn into a tiny purse. It wou;d be nice to whip up another pair of fuzzy feet for myself at home to felt at the same time.
The kitchen is up and running and all the kitchen boxes are unpacked and the plumbing is fully functioning thanks to AMAZING JESPER. I am pretty happy the the strategy of the food/tool locations in the work area. Like the tea in the cupboard right next to the stove. And the baking stuff the the drawers directly below the work space where a cake would be mixed up. The place that is the hardest to stowe items is the lazy susan base cabinet. Maybe that will be canned goods. The main limitation of the cabinets is a lack of shallow drawers. I think I might be able to fit a few more in our tall pantry. I haven't seen my last IKEA trip yet!
