He came back Wednesday and obviously I have no clue what it takes to 'replace a flange'. I thought he would take off that metal rusty piece, put on new one and viola.....nope....he started to saw into the concrete.....all around the hole
Then he filled in some dirt that had washed away from my slow leak...and resealed it all....new cement and new clean and shiny flange
Now the cleanest thing in my house is my toilet....LOL!!!!
Okay......so, that is probably more than you ever wanted to learn or see about plumbing! So, on to knitting!
I finished the Wedding Shawl!
I brought both shawls to work to give to Darlene and she took some pictures of me holding it up.
Here is Celestartium that I finished last year:
and then she noticed some loose yarn.....so I think a bead broke or something.
So I fixed it and all is right with the world again (LOL)! The new bead goes sideways instead of up and down, and you can see where I wove in ends, but it still looks great!
I also finished my March Socks....Yeah!
For April, I think I will do the exclusive colorway from last year:
Now. towards the end of last week the oak pollen really started to get to me...I went home sick from work, and stayed home Friday. On Saturday I was about the same but just stayed inside all day and knitted and hung out with Antonio....
by staying in and hanging out, I was able to knit the Decemberist Shawl and I finished on Saturday too!! I was pretty excited. Now, Darlene has already made one Decemberist (on size 13 needles) and she did all the research on it....she increased the amount of times to repeat section one and then she decided to make another one on size 17 needles....so I went with size 17 and used almost 5 skeins. This thing is HUGE!
Here it is in progress:
Here is Jacob (Jaime's oldest son) holding it up for me:
Here it is blocking (yup, almost 8 feet wide and more than 4 feet deep)!
WOW.....3 finished items in a week.....I felt pretty accomplished!
I told you last week that I got my Miss Babs Tour Destination, but the pattern just was not for me. However, I still wanted to do a knit along with Miss Babs (my way of justifying the tour) so I looked through stash and saw my fabulous Deep Sea Jellyfish in Yummy 2-ply yarn. I want to make And Then Some, so I got Pewter and Ebony to see which would go best.
I loved the pewter with it so I got busy!
I worked a little on my secret project....but not as much as I should have...so I hope to get extra knitting done on it this week before April.
That is all I have! I hope you all have a fabulous week!
Happy Happy Happy knitting!!!
