Decisions, decisions....the easy part of a remodel is ripping everything out. The hard part is deciding on what you want to put back in. We took a trip to the floor store to see what was what and I think we have it figured out.
I am still lobbying hard for Ikea cabinets but The Mister isn't so sure. He wanted to check out Lowes since that is where we got the ones we have. Pup had a ball. Dogs are allowed in Lowes.
Since we were in the area we decided to stop in at Micheal's where they were having a great yarn sale. The shelves were pretty much picked through but I did get some stripey yarn for two more Pup sweaters.
I was dismayed to see how few aisles of yarn they had and even more dismayed to see the embroidery section was not only hard to find but didn't even have a full row anymore. Crafts are taking a back seat to holiday decor theses days. I guess people want their stuff already done. That makes me sad.
Even worse, AC Moore's, my favorite craft store in the area was GONE. I'm still in shock.
I did get some knitting done on the way up and back. Both socks are at the heel.
Back at home, I finished Soldotna. Almost. All I have left is the bottom ribbing-if I follow the pattern but....look how much yarn I have leftover. Since it's already in the world's ugliest knit category I think I'm going to add more color work at the bottom to add length. What do I have to lose?
I also have to thank Beth for sending me this book. Since I have three bins of single handspun skeins this is exactly what I needed. Thanks Beth!!
