Checking in

Here we are into our third weekend of construction. Everything is going really well . This photo was taken yesterday morning , all the windows are in and they're working on the interior divisions . Plumbing and electricity are next . It looks like they'll be able to move in by July 1st , which is when they have to be out of their apartment . We've been so lucky with the weather, a little cool , but no rain . In between meal preparation yesterday , I took the dogs for a little walk by the river . It was just so nice . I really enjoyed the sunshine and fresh air.

Not much new on the knitting front . I'm feeling a little scattered these days . I can't seem to finish anything . I picked up some gorgeous yarn last week . I'd had to go into town to try and find a dress to wear to Casey and Chantal's wedding in January . Of course there was a pit stop at a yarn shop along the way . I treated myself to a skein of Fleece Artist sea wool , Some Colinette Jitterbug and another Fleece Artist sock yarn . No luck on the dress , but my yarn purchases made my day. I still haven't decided on the pattern for my sock pal . Keep starting a sock , not liking how it's working out , then ripping it . I think I'll try and focus on getting some of the WIP off the needles this week .

I can't belive how fast building a house goes around here! I'm guessing you'll be relieved once this is all over and you have more time for yourself! ;o)

What an amazing progress you all have been making with the house - wow, I really can't believe how quickly this went! I'm impressed indeed! And this second pic that you shared is so beautiful - certainly a place I'd love to be at right now!
