Painting is Hard
Really, it is. The boy and I have been painting the living room for forever and a day, but we're finally done. Well, we still have to bring everything back into the room that we stashed in the front closet. It is sooo horrifying in that closet. Anyway, the paint is from Ace Hardware and the color is called Grasshopper Wing. It's a bright green and I absolutely love it! The trim is a nice bright white, much better than the hideous cream of doom that the room used to be. Now I need to get serious about buying some organizational stuff for my craft supplies. I want one of those white laminate cabinets to put some things in, well I don't WANT one, but that's about what my budget will allow. I have my yarn stored pretty well, but my paper crafting stuff and my sewing gear is pretty out of control.
With all the work going on, there hasn't been much time for making stuff. But when I was going through the new Patternworks catalog, I saw something that I just have to make:
It's from the Nashua Handknits Collection #4 and I love it! It's made in Nashua Ecologie cotton, which I've never used before. I love the natural colors it comes in, but I don't think they'd look too good on me. I tend to look washed out and oogy in the oatmealy kind of colors, so I'll have to find a substitution. I also need to get some needles. I'll be ordering my Knit Picks options needles soon and I'm very excited! I love Addi Turbos but I can't really afford to have them in every size. If anyone has any opinions on the options needles, I'd love to hear them!
