Painting the Sky

We woke up this morning and decided we couldn't wait to complete Abigail's bedroom!
While we were at the Sherwin Williams store to buy our paint, David cleaned out all the contents of the room except for the bed and dresser!  We had to paint the bottom half of the room where the wallpaper had been so that it would be an even coat....we will be tackling the rest of the painting tomorrow!  It is going to have the look of French cottage.
We are all excited about the progress!
The sock count is up another pair of socks!
Knit in Cascade Cherub DK
Over 56 sts in the Zigzagular pattern.
Uses one skein plus a smidge of a second.
My daughter wears a size 10 1/2 so one skein would work for a pair of short socks
in size 8-9.
I think I will inflict a bit of lace knitting on myself tomorrow.  We will see....


  1. You go!!! The room is going to be lovely. Those socks are scrummy. I love those colors together.

  2. Aha! My new diabolical plan is to wear you out so much every day that you are only up to sock knitting at night, hence beefing up my sock collection! ;) :-D Really, though, thanks for being my partner in crime (AND my sock fairy).

  3. It seems everyone is knitting pretty socks. I need to search my stash for some summer sock yarn to join the club.

  4. What dedication! Love the quilt on her bed.

  5. Is her whole room going to be that pretty blue, then?


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Give it a Try

 I am trying to make a summer tank on the knitting machine; a maiden voyage!   After a few false start, it moved right along-even wit...
