Away and Back Again....

I had no idea I hadn't updated this blog since late December; a lot has happened since then - I graduated from nursing school, went to Montana to ride my board for a week and then passed my boards, then I started on the Telemetry unit at Methodist Hospital.

So needless to say, I've been a bit busy...

But I have managed to get some knitting in. Knit yet another baby cardy for Isabelle, made out of 100% cotton, color #221 from Patagonia, used yet another wonderful Knitting Pure and Simple

pattern, #982, the Neck Down model. Didn't take any pictures of it, but it was in shades of blue and green, and just so soft.

I'm finally finishing up the Brenda's Blanket I started months ago, with Berroco Medley yarn I bought almost two years ago! It's perfect for our new couch in the den, which was a long-overdue purchase.

The other project I've been nursing along is a modified burp rag from Mason-Dixon Knitting.
I bought several skeins of cotton yarn, and so far have managed to use most of one to knit the washcloth pattern from the book. Someday, I'll finish it for real!

Finally, we've been a bit busy around the house. I'm sitting here waiting for the carpet guys to show up to install the new carpeting. I personally ripped and hauled out the old stuff yesterday, and was very glad that I spend three or four days a week at Velocity. To celebrate the Overhaulin' of our main floor, I had my toes done today in as close a match as I could to our new orange wall!

Hey! Both of my babies were born over at Methodist - hope that place is treating you right.

I like the orange wall.

Thanks Guinifer! We got the carpeting in, and for about a day the house had that 'new carpet smell'. Not quite like a new Mercedes, but that's about as close as I'm going to get to one!

New kitchen 'gathering table' (Puhleeze), chairs and a super groovy chaise lounge (for the dog, of course) arrive tomorrow!
