This p0st is so long overdue! So where indeed am I going and where have I been?

Well our lives the past several months have revolved mainly around transforming this:

basement bedroom1

closets before demo

demo'd closets

demo'd closets

into this:

finished bedroom with carpet

finished closets

There were some bumps in the road like this:

the culprit: unsafe stepstool

 

Which led to this:

one unhappy guy and his little buddy

I also suffered a hand injury which greatly hampered my knitting for some time!  Sadly no pictures to share.

Along the way we celebrated this:

L turns 3, B turns...uh..old

L turns 3, B turns...uh..old

I did manage a bit of Christmas knitting (tho I didn’t manage any decent photo shoots) like this:

B's 2nd striped vest

 

and this:

Corrie Fair Isle Vest (KnitPicks) for my sis

 this,

Running Stitch Skirt from Interweave Knits

 and these:

Hermione's Deathly Hallows Hat

Hermione's mitts

Both of which I designed myself and gifted to my fabulous niece for Christmas.

And here’s a spoiler for my current project in progress, which will also be gifted to my fantastic niece:

Leah's sweater

(10 points if you can guess the inspiration for this sweater!)

So as you can see it’s been a very busy 6 months here!  We still have a lot of home improvements yet to complete and the knitting basket is always overflowing, but hopefully I’ll pop in more often to let you know where I’m going.
