I haven’t been here in a few days because I’ve been cleaning! I’m trying to get the house ready for listing, and it’s a job and a half. Fortunately, this is the kind of cleaning I enjoy (the kind where I get to throw things away… ah, such satisfaction!) It isn’t leaving much knitting time though. I have completed the backs of both my WIPs, and the drawstring chemise is perhaps 2 good knitting days away from completion (it would be closer, but I have not knit since Saturday… insane for me!)
I did swatch for the printed silk cardigan, and determined I need to find my size 2 addis, which I think are slightly larger than the knitpicks size 2s I have (the swatch on the bottom is on 2s and is slightly too small… I would just make a larger size but I don’t have that much yarn.) The size 3s were way big.
I’m going to try and find my other size 2/3 needles, because the swatch on 3s is big, but the 2 is a bit small.
I’m trying to decide if I want to try painting the kitchen cabinets before we show the house. Currently they are covered in melamine, but it’s very old and is coming off in sheets (we have two whole drawers with no paint at all.) I’m confident I could easily remove the rest of it, but it seems like an awful lot of trouble… have I been watching too many of those “sell you house” shows? Will people reject the condo because the cabinets need painting?
Anyway, I will be back soon with real knitting content. Just as soon as I crawl out from beneath this vast pile of organizing…
