A Knitting Kind of Day (What Day Isn't??)

A wonderful day to knit. I am off work today, and have a nice amount of time to knit this morning! I happen to be going along pretty well on my Yarn Fairy Mystery Shawl, just about 1/3 done with the final clue. I expect to be finished within a day or two, if all goes well.

How about that pink wall paper? We bought a house in May of this year, and I love it so much. BUT, that paper has got to go. It is a throwback to the early 90's and is completely covering every wall of the master bedroom. Even on the light switches. Too much. I never thought I would say "too much PINK"!! haha! But this is really bad. I probably won't have the time or energy to get to it until after the holidays are over, but I intend to strip it off and do something with the room to make it beautiful.

Let's see...what else has been going on? I have a job now, and yes, I am the one knitting in the breakroom. It is such a  good stress reliever.

The Kitman Mystery Shawl (Koi) is over with, I downloaded every clue to my computer, but after casting on, I frogged it and put the yarn back in it's bag. I really have other shawls I'd rather be working on and think I will save that for now. I don't even feel the least bit guilty! And really, I can lay the guilt on myself like no other!

It was nice to hear from my friend, Judy, who left me a comment on one of the last posts. I'm surprised to see anyone still checking this blog, really. I had deserted it for so long! But it is nice to have everything going again. Even my camera seems to be cooperating with me this time. That is usually my biggest problem! I always think it would be a good idea to take  a Digital Photography class for beginners, but where would I find the time? And how would I take that time away from my knitting? It's a scary thought!
