New projects are exciting!

I have started the back of Honey, and so far it’s love at first sight.  I still can’t believe how great the stitch definition is with All Seasons Cotton, and the stitch pattern is fun and easy.  The best part? The WS rows are knitted rather than purled, making this a quick knit in spite of all the cables!  It looks like it’s going to fit with 0″ ease either direction, which is fine with me.

It’s a good distraction from my house discovery of the week.  Sometime in the 70s the plaster was removed from the house, and drywall was installed.  They didn’t do a great job, but it’s liveable.  Around the fireplace in the foyer though (the green one) they tried to fill the gap between the fireplace and the wall with drywall mud and newspapers.  When we removed the wallpaper all that came crumbling out of the crack, and now I have to repair the damage.  Ah well… I have instructions from my Dad, and I’m sure I can follow them well enough!

After the foyer is finished I will either move to the kitchen or the living room.  I’m trying to postpone a kitchen remodel for awhile, and I suspect if it were painted a less awful color (currently: butter yellow) I might like it better.   We will see…
