A quick check in today. I have been cleaning the house like a crazy person. We are having it appraised and if they come in I want it to be clean. I hate having strangers in my house. I needs a very complete cleaning as I have mostly given it a lick and a promise since I started working at my current job 2 years ago. I just wish I had more energy and less back pain. I remember in my 20's when I cleaned the baseboards with a tooth brush now I do ever clean them.
on the knitting front I am blocking my Brandywine Shawl. I am also work on the second sock for the Secret Garden but I hated the patten so much I decided to just make a ribbed cuff rather than use the written pattern. I think the pattern was just badly written it is very pretty but not for me.
I picked out my yarn for the Citron Shawl. It is a color my DD dyed for me. bright greens I think it will be a happy little shawl.
Next weekend leaving for a vacation of hiking, knitting and my first without the kids
