Still Dusty with a Side of Paint!

 So, I have had lots of dust (that I am still cleaning) but the floors are on to painting.  Paige is doing most of the painting but Antonio helps and I did a little too.

There is so much dust, but it is getting better.  On October 1st, I went to a fitness event that one of the gyms I go to puts on at hemisfair was lots of fun.....doing yoga is Paige, Me, Sam, Biz (with one of her dogs, Nova).......Paige and Bizz both won metals!

My sister and mother are in Germany and my sister has been sending lots of great pics!

Then I met a lady online that has several CSM machines and she invited me over to crank at her house.....She cranked one while I watched and took notes and then I cranked the other.....

Dust, Dust and more Dust

 Well, it has been almost 3 weeks since my last post and my floors are still not done....but a big part is finding other things that need to be done.  They found 2 water leaks (thankfully not major damage) and some of my foundation needs to be resurfaced/leveled.

Look at this haze of dust in the house.....all of my furniture and stuff is covered, but the dust still gets on everything even with the covering on it.

I got some new yarn from Elizabeth.....unfortunately one of her knitting friends from Michigan passed away, so she is sharing some of the yarn she got from her.

Elizabeth also finished my cranked socks....I love them!  Thank you Elizabeth for the socks and yarn!

Antonio picked the wildcard yarn (the picture right before the socks) for a sockhead hat.....and I already started it.

Then I started a new hat with the worsted weight yarn

Plus I started the 3rd triangle on the monthly blanket

and lastly I am working on the test knit

Here are my progress pics on the floors

That is all I have.....Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
