Upheaval

Finally the restoration people have come in this morning to start work on my sewing room. The humidifier and fans are on and he said that he will return next week.  The walls are taped to show the level of dampness in the walls.  The floor will have to come up and two outer walls repaired.  Gyproc removed and replaced.  This will take several weeks.

In the meantime, I have been thinking of how to sew with all this happening. My dh is going out of time for 10 days, I’d really like to make a dent in my sewing stash and I have a lot of clothes planned.  Every time I go up stairs, I take something more from the sewing area to my dining room.  The dining room table was extended out to 92 inches for New Years and will now have to double as a sewing table. Everytime, I go downstairs I take another Christmas thing that needs to be put away.

I went out shopping yesterday with all my little swatches of fabric to get thread, picked up the latest copies of Somerset Studio and Cloth Paper Scissors  magazines and went to the latest yarn store on the North Shore. Urban Yarns is now in Edgemont Village and I did buy some yarn. Oh my, the Hand maiden and the Fleece Artist did me in. I got a F.A. Kid Silk scarf skein in the richest mixture of Autumn colours.   I suppose you can’t tell yet that I was going to try to get solid colours this year  but it will look lovely with my new wardrobe.

On the knitting front, I have nearly finished a sock. I am working with a 2mm dpns and the density of the sock is much improved.

Two of my favorite knitters have started a joint blog. http://friendsknittogether.blogspot.com/ Congratulations to Heather and Adriana.
