The weather is horrible. It’s cool, overcast and lately the wind has picked up quite a bit. I was just looking out the window and there was a huge dust devil blowing down the street. It’s like we’re in Regina [shudder]!
So I’ve moved the blog over here. We’ll see if this is a permanent thing. I’m liking the interface so far. I had some pics to share:
My 7 mm long circs came in the mail the other day, so I got back on redoing Emerald. I’m up to the reverse waist shaping already. Also, in order to make the shipping fee worthwhile, I got some sock yarn that was on sale (the Meilenweit) and a ball of Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn, which even though its fibre content is 75% wool, 25% nylon (the usual) it’s incredibly scratchy and coarse. I hope it will soften up upon washing. As with all Noro yarns, great colours though!
I’ve also been working a bit on the Cozy V-Neck. I’m using some Lana Grossa Royal Tweed and I know i’m going to LOVE this sweater:
In other news, Sabrina and Apollo have been exhausted from battling the mosquitos on our walks. However, in all fairness to those bastard insects, we did manage a couple of evening walks that were for the most part enjoyable (excellent combination of temperature, offshore breezes and keeping to paved paths/sidewalks).
While it may appear that Sabrina has lost her head over fresh linen on the bed …
She’s still in one piece
And Apollo is enjoying naps on his bed:
We had a very productive and reassuring visit with our banker yesterday to nail down the details of our mortgage. Now all that is left is just waiting until the lawyer calls us in to sign everything, then once they confirm the transfer of funds to the vendor, we can take possession of our new home! The possession date was set for June 30th, but if the funds transfer a few days early, we could probably get the keys at that time. I believe the vendors take possession of their new place on the 15th, so that still gives them lots of time to finish moving their belongings out. Exciting!
