Painting and knitting

Late Monday posting…

I disconnected my computer Friday and just got it back up and running this afternoon.  I painted the living room (where my computer lives) and finally got things put back together…almost.

Friday and Saturday nights I knitted on a seamless slipper (see pattern over there to the right) and got one finished.  I started the second one last night.  The previous ones I knit were purple.  These are orange.  Free yarn.

My knitting mojo seems to be on vacation.  Ms Ida is giving me fits.  (Sorry, Jude.)

The new chandelier is up in the dining room.  I didn’t exactly do it but I helped.

I’m not 100% in love with the paint color in the living room.  (You were right, Leah, I should have gone with the darker color.)  It’s blue and I’m a green person.  What was I thinking?  For the next couple of months I’m going to see if the color will work and if it doesn’t, I’ll repaint.

We plan to get crown molding in the dining and living rooms by next March so I have until that happens to decide on repainting the room.

Free beer tomorrow

Mr. Aitch’s brother commissioned this sign for his personal bar last year and I finally delivered it to him this past weekend.  It’s 3 1/2 inches by 24 inches.  I used to paint these types of signs but never one like this.  I probably would have sold more of these than the ones I used to make.

I also finished the second eyelet sweater last night around 10:00!  Yay!  It’s being blocked as I write this and I will post pictures of both sweaters and the dresses they will be wearing to the wedding.
