Wishy Washy


Guess what we did yesterday. What we've done all week. Washing the deck has been a much bigger job than we thought. It was filthy. 

Making it harder is the fact that it is about 15 feet in the air. Getting to the outside has been tricky. Now it all has to dry so we can put a sealer on it. That's not going to be fun either.

 I did get a few minutes before dinner to finally sit down and cast on something with the Knit Picks Mighty Stitch I bought a while back. I hated it. The yarn is slick and splitty. It's got no definition at all and looks pretty awful. It's getting ripped back then I'm tossing the nasty stuff in the stash. It might have its use but I can't think of any right now.

How about something more miserable than lousy yarn? Poor Pup. Her fall allergies are kicking in and she's been chewing her legs. Her new cone of shame is working wonders as are the multicolored bandages much to her dismay. It's too bad dogs don't just sneeze like us humans. It would make things so much easier for us both. 


  1. Aww. Poor Pup. That cone of shame looks much more comfortable than the plastic ones though.
    I remember when Mandy lived in MD. The mildew and mold from the high humidity was a bear to deal with. I'm so sorry the deck has been so much work.

  2. Sometimes you've just got to walk away from a yarn. I've done it! I have no regrets.

    Poor pup. I love those puffy neck cones. I bought one for the cats but it ended up being too small. I keep meaning to get a bigger on to have on hand, just in case.

  3. Sorry for the disappointment for the yarn! Good to know at least. The deck will look when is a lot of work to keep the homestead tip top!

  4. Oh I am never very pleased with knit picks for just that reason...splitty.
    Poor pup. My friend called me two nights ago about her dogs scratching. We dosed him with benadryl and she put a t-shirt on him.

  5. I should do the back deck but no ones ever sees it but us! We never use it. But it is cedar and we just let it go natural. North side of the house so that is the pits. You will be glad when that project is done!
