End of Teasers

Well Amanda, it looks like you were right and there is lace next to those cables! I, obviously, recycled my Frog Clasp Cable and put it straight up the middle of a tank top. Knit in silk/cashmere lace weight on size 6 needles it drapes wonderfully!

Next up is an incomplete picture of some Vine Mitts from Summer Swatch Me! I am using Adagio from Yarn Place and had a heck of a time trying to match the mitts, which are actually finished just not photo'd. In the end after many tears The Drama Queen agreed that fraternal mitts were just as good as identical ones.

We spent the holiday weekend putting in more flooring, with the exception of two pieces of trim and the stairs we have finished our big summer house-project! My bedroom was the last to be done, and truth be told, the easiest of the lot with only two uncooperative boards to put in. My Dad came over for the more complicated cuts which left me to put down the boards and hammer them into place. I am VERY pleased with the lack of carpet in my house.

Along with knitting and flooring the kids and I made our traditional July 4th doughnuts. This year they had more fun making them than eating them, looks like we will be making doughnut-bread pudding later in the week.

Now to sand down, stain and put mats on the stairs.....not to mention reclaim the garage as a home for a car rather than a home for wood! :)

What do you have planned for the week?

You have been busy! Love the tank top. It looks like it would be lovely to wear too. And the mitts look great - I'm tempted to knit them but sans the colour changes :) Oh and I'm back in the land of stable internet.
