Bits and pieces....

Bits of knitting progress and pieces of my sweater.

I didn't get much farther on the 2nd front of my sweater. I just finished the gusset decreases on the 2nd lace sock. And finally, I just had to cast on another pair of socks. I have a long car ride and some waiting times tomorrow, so I needed a "just pick up and knit" project. I chose a ball of Regia Silk #186 and a simple modified garter rib pattern. My daughter Lauren has state solo and ensemble for voice tomorrow, so that's where we're going.

Office update......the painter is finished. YAY! I'm so excited. We had a little mishap this morning when I realized the color he was putting on the walls was NOT THE COLOR I PICKED! Thankfully there was one coat to go, so now we have the right color. Wanna see?

It's a really nice brown. I may still do a wool wash on it with some blue/green and soft white to match this fabric I picked out for the valances.

Isn't it cute?!! It's from the Waverly Urban Attitude collection. I LOVE IT! Now to find the furniture I want......I think I see a trip to IKEA in the near future.

Great color on the walls! The fabric is going to look great with it!

I am enjoying watching your progress on the sweater. It looks really nice so far.
