Water Drying

Well here are fans running at my house. Why are fans running at my house you asked? Well it turns out a toilet tank leaked without us knowing while on vacation for almost 2 weeks, and it flooded the house from the upstairs down to thru the kitchen and down to the basement. Walls have had to be removed to the studs and the entire ceiling in the kitchen is gone. B is actually back in CO while R and I are staying in CA with my parents during construction. It did not hit me until I saw all the pics. My house my just remodeled house is ruined. I am so incredibly bummed out right now I cannot even explain.

If you want to see what damage a little leak can do all the pics are on my flickr account here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adoreone/sets/72157600123008550/

Those are the "best" ones.

Well guess I will not be spinning for a while. Good thing I brought all that yarn too!!!

I am crazy

I do not know why when I am on vacation I have a VERY unrealistic idea of what I can actually knit in a given timeframe...

We are on the road in Telluride today this is a photo from the hotel room. I cannot believe DH did not give me too much grief for this.

I am on the first side of the wraparound now The lacy sweater is moving VERY fast.

Tace (the blond) up there is modeling a sweater I knit her. She wants to thank Auntie C for the pretty yarn.

Also to check out our dye day go look at Jennifer/Lilac Knits blog - and tell her congratulations she has some VERY big news!!!! :)

I also had my birthday! Yup Easter Sunday was my 32nd Birthday. What did I ask for for my birthday? Yes it was a VERY grownup present. I got DOLLIES!!!! I know I am such a dork! Actually I got 3 Blythe dolls. One was from my parents, and that is still in the mail, she is coming from Japan. The other two I actually got and put away one was for Easter and one my birthday.

Here is Sol watering the flowers in our backyard. I need to take pics of the other girls and probably will today if this wind dies down a bit.

Oh and on knitting front. The Airy Lace Wrap-around from Fitted knits is flying off the needles I start the fronts tonight at SNB!

Well looking back it seems as if I have been gone forever. Really I haven't promise. I have been working on getting my new site up and going. It looks like I should have it up later today or early tommorrow.

I posted my first items on etsy. And adding that to the side bar.
