Lots has been going on in Sarah-Land lately.
J and I finally turned our backroom/overgrown closet into a usable space, just in time for a Memorial Day party! (That was kindof the point actually, we didn't want people to feel like they had to be stuck in the livingroom). We are really loving it now: very comfy, bright, futon, usable table, a place to hide the mountain bikes.. it's great!
Here's the tour:
*Notice yarn stash under desk*
Huge coffee table, perfect for craft parties!
I also cut all my hair off! Short hair is definitely IN this summer, all my friends are cutting their's off!
Also, we got a new snake! This is Dolores (so named because she has a frown on her head)
Adding to our collection, we are now up to 6 pythons.
Aggie (the biggest)
While she may look scary in this picture, she's actually a big sweetheart who loves to come out of her cage to play and snuggle!
Baby Leonard (Lenny)
and I can't find the pictures of Cider, but she looks a lot like a bigger version of Penny.
OK now for some knitting content...
Here's what my Tess Superwash is becoming! Another Scarf-Otis (scarf-size Clapotis). While I hated how boring the first one was to make, I love wearing it, and I really think it is one of the best patterns for showing off varigated yarn. Here she is, working up nicely on my size 7 ebony needles.
Also on the needles is the Twisted Tweed sock pattern in Trekking XXL
I've been trying to work for one hour per day on something crafty, whether it's blogging about being crafting, making stitch markers, knitting, spinning, ANYTHING. Hopefully soon I can coordinate a monthly craft night with the girl friends and get some use out of the new room!
