The house looks pretty amazing:
Another thing I believe I failed to mention is that I received a yarn bowl at the retreat. It's wonderful, and the perfect gift as I would have never purchased one myself, even though I think it's fantastic and I can't wait to have it on my coffee table.
This is the hat and swatch - products of the retreat. I'm knitting gifts right now, and then I want to make something fast and fun. Since the double knitting is very, very slow for me, I'm thinking it will be languishing for another month or so. I love the colors, so hopefully that will draw me in and get me back on track eventually.
In other news, Auntie will be starting a new round of chemo this week. Fingers crossed. I went to the condo today to take measurements, and also to make sure they're getting their (massive amounts of) stuff out of there. Progress is being made. I got a shower curtain. And I bought myself a computer. It's the first time I've had my very own :-) As I organize my photos I may post (or maybe repost) some old ones. It's a fun project, if a bit overwhelming.
