First of all, some dissapointing news : I didn't make it in time to earn my gold medal in the knitting olympics. Sad, but it was a good decission. the last 3 days of the Olympics I was quite sick and I didn't really feel like knitting. Then I wasn't at home at Sunday. I had planned to get up early to do some more knitting, but I overslept and hardly made it in time to the riding school to leave with the cavalry band. Anyway, instead of rushing this and having a shawl I didn't really like, I decided to just take it a bit longer. I had thought a few days, but I'm finishing it tonight (after writing this I have about 4 more rows to knit). I'll show pictures tomorrow.
I have been ill most of the week, not being able to recover. There are 2 good excuses for that :
The first :
Scared yet? *grin* Yes, thsi is me! With my make up on and my hair done, just before the premiere of the theater play I was in! We had rehearsals the whole week long and had our last performance today. I'm happy it's over. It was a nice experience, but I'm happy to have my time back! By the way, I played a witch. :D
Second excuse :
The painting of my living room + kitchen. I've been wanting to do this since I moved here but never came around it. We were waiting till the new kitchen was installed, this happened about a year ago. Look why I didn't like the walls :
This the living room, after the painting, before putting all the furnishings and my curtains back (the stuff on the table actually are my curtains). It's dusty pink and deep purple (a lot darker then in the picture). The kitchen actually is painted olive, but I have no pictures of that! My sisters helped me painting and I'm so happy it's finally done, though I could have done with some rest!!
100% wool, from my yarn store (on a cone), Based on FuzzyFeet from Knitty, but adapted them myself. Of course I forgot to take a picture after felting them and I took them to my LYS for the owner, so sorry, no after felting pics in the future either. They looked quite nice!
As said before I'll probably have pictures of a finished Kiri shawl tomorrow, and blocked if possible! Next on the lace knitting list is the Sampler Stole KAL (with KnitPics).
Lets see, I also got the Drillbox for the Yarn Aboard swap! It was such a nice surprise!
