Modelled picture of me wearing Green Gable:
and another one, just for good measure:
Looking at this picture of me reminds me I either a: need to get bangs or b: botox. I understand bangs are cheaper. But boxtox lasts longer.

FO: Green Gable, Long Sleeved
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease
Needles: 4.5mm Knitpicks Options
Gauge: 4 stitches to the inch. Pattern calls for 5 stitches to the inch
Verdict: LOVE IT!
Mods: Waist decreases and hip increases. Knit long sleeves (pretty obvious!)
Very easy project indeed! I was inspired by Brenda's black inky
(ravelry link)- what a copy cat eh?
Want more knitting? I am knitting three pairs of socks for my girlfriend who gave me the lovely table and sideboard. Here is the first sock of the first pair, I am using Austerman Step and what a lovely yarn it is:
I am about to start the heel of the 2nd sock soon. Of course, I forgot my knitting at home, so the heel will have to wait until later. I NEVER leave home without my knitting. NEVER people. First time for everything.
Below are the two skeins I am going to use for her other two pair:
Some Lion Brand Sockease:
and some Arequipa:
Thankfully my girlfriend's feet size are very small, so I can whip these out in no time. When I look at the picture of the sock I can't believe these will fit her, but I had her try it on and it does. Wow. Thankfully she doesn't have giant feet. Whew.

Holy geez - did you anyone watch the Pittsburgh/Detroit game last night? Maddie and I only made it till 10:30pm, and Chris and Julianna watched the whole game - till
1am! Jay is only 9 years old - I couldn't believe she stayed up so late to watch this amazing game. Even more surprisingly, Chris allowed her to. Must have been one hell of a game.
I have finished one sleeve of my Green Gable and started the 2nd one today. Shouldn't take me too long to finish because the sleeve is only 91 rows long.
Have a good one.

I am in the home stretch to finish my long sleeved Green Gable:
In other grand news, my friends GAVE me this wonderful table:
and this wonderful sideboard:
I promptly put it in the sitting room in my bedroom, and now this little corner is my craft area!! YEAH!! I am one lucky girl. I haven't moved all my yarn over yet, or organized the book shelf (that was in Chris' office) yet, but that will come.
Time is something I rarely have, so it will get done, when it gets done.
I must be in a nesting/organizing/feel like spending mood. Here is my new bedset:
It matches my couch and furniture perfectly. I have been having great sleeps in my new sheets and blanket.
My neighbourhood was having our annual garage sale day on Saturday so the girls and I went and poked around. They bought a bit of this and that and I bought a beautiful piece of artwork to hang in my new craft room. Once it is up, I'll take a picture to show you.
