We've reached a few milestones here. First, the interior of the Bellevue house is finally complete. The outside of the house, well, I'll let the following video speak for that. Dennis is really happy with everything he's done on the inside, and excited about the plans for the landscape.
I finally completed Dennis' Machrihanish Fair Isle vest. I'm as equally as pleased with my accomplishment as Dennis is with his. Although mine doesn't hold a candle to his project! But after a year of knitting that thing, and worrying about the size as well as cutting the steeks, I have to say, It looked and fit pretty darn good. Win!
On another crafty note, I've been turning out the needlepoint projects rather quickly. I now have 2 pieces out for finishing (cha-ching!) and several others in the works. I decided to paint a picture of Jack on a canvas, and I must say, it's a pretty good likeness! That will be a lenghty project, but a fun one.
I also cast on the Naima sweater for myself. There's only one way to describe that pattern - shit show. Wow, talk about lost in translation. If English isn't your first language, don't even try to convert a German pattern into English. Although it has been a struggle, it's turning out ok. My count is off a bit, and I have no idea why, but I'm crossing my fingers that I can do some fudging.
