Grey and rain.
The start of this farming season is horrid. There was snow everywhere still in early May and now that the snow is gone and the fields are just starting to get ready to plant...this happens. Uff.
We are SO late. But the farmers are holding it together. And we desperately need the rain. It was so dry last year. If only it had held off for a few weeks and given everyone a chance... /sigh
On a brighter note...well, maybe...I'll let you be the judge of that...
It's CMMDI Mega May. I didn't think I'd have time, patience or the right attitude for knitting but as it turns out I really need that time in the evenings.
But to find the pattern to go with this yarn, (Malabrigo Lace), turned into a "Mega May Effort".
This is the list of patterns I have tried.
And the pattern that the yarn finally said "Ok, this is the one." is Citron. It's the only one that has Malabrigo Lace as the suggested yarn. Duh. I should have looked for that first.
It's looking pretty good and is just what is needed. Simple knitting with a little counting thrown in for good measure. The hardest parts are the M1s and that is because of the slippery needles.
News about the house building is good. The siding is going up and is looking good. The hardwood floor is beautiful with the 1st coat of finish. The woodwork is mostly up everywhere.
The only thing that made me freak out was the sticker shock from the price of cabinet pulls. But I pulled myself together, got my p**p in a group, my ducks in a row, my head on straight and lived with it.
Have a great weekend!
