An Update

I’m working hard to wrap up projects that are keeping me from my knitting time… I’ve got some good posts that are awaiting these project completions but I just can’t seem to find enough time in the day to wrap them up.

The house buying is going really well.  We’ve got a purchase contract nailed out and the house has passed inspection and the (all minor) repair negotiations so the last hurdle to jump is the appraisal before we can revel in a big sigh of relief.  It’s a beautiful house and I cannot wait to take it over and yarn it up!  I’ll include a few photos of the inside at the bottom of the post…

I got these first two pictures this evening.  I made this hat for this little guy months ago, but he’s just grown into it.  Don’t you just love it when the things you make and send out into the world are truly appreciated?  I know this little guy just loves the hat on his head 😉

What a happy and inquisitive looking guy this is…  Love it!

As promised, here are a couple pictures from the inside of *our* house (note: these shots were taken during the seller’s possession of the home — we really considered writing this woman’s services as an interior decorator into our purchase contract — she’s just that good.):

Anyway, things are looking up and we are making progress towards a calmer, slower pace of life.  

I hope that you are enjoying a happy and healthy 2012 and that it bring as much excitement and joy to your life as it has so far to ours!

Knit Happy Everyone!


A photo…

It’s no Fiber Fever Friday, it’s just a single photo that (although not from this season) has been in my sights all week long….

… we got it.


Hi All! 

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks… We kicked our house hunting up into high gear and spent all of our free time looking at houses on the interweb or in person… 

Tuesday we found ‘our’ house!  We walked in and it just felt like home.  It’s the right size, the right price, and in the right location.  Plus, it’s just generally all around beautiful!



                … we put our first offer in to the current owners today.   They’ve had it since 10:30 (so four hours now) and we’re just generally going completely crazy waiting.  I feel like one of those cartoon characters staring at the evil clock and sweating and biting its nails!  C-R-A-Z-Y!

Anyway, wish us luck!  We’re praying for a quick and easy negotiation and for an accepted contract by the weekend.

Lots of things to post about, I’m so behind!  There’s the trip to Atlanta and the new wheel!  It was bare wood and currently in pieces in our apartment while I finish it with a bit of Danish Oil.  But as soon as it’s done it’ll be on the blog!

I hope you are all doing exceptionally well and are enjoying the peace of mind that a Thursday afternoon brings!

Knit Happy Everyone!
