For a moment I had thought once the bathroom was finished the house remodel work would be done. Really though, is work on an older house EVER really finished?

One of the last next projects is the floor in the patio room. The previous owners didn’t tile under their crap built-ins (and how could they? Cute little mice had made nests there. Sheesh!) so that leaves me to repair their atrocities.

This morning I will set the tiles
so I can grout when we return from Vegas. (Vegas baby!) I’m motivated to wrap this up quickly so I can get to my new knitting project. Are those beads? Is that Sea Silk? Could it be I have forsaken the sock and cast on for Hanami?

Oh hells yeah.

    Oh my – that’s going to be gorgeous. I hadn’t seen that pattern before – thanks for the link. Have fun in Vegas – my favorite experience there was the New York casino, with its faux Greenwich Village.

    And have a blast in Vegas!

    GORGEOUS! I can’t wait to see more of this beautiful wrap – I love the beads, they add just that “umpf”…looks like it would be good to wear in Vegas too!:)

    Mmm, Hanami. I just started one, too – with Zephyr and iridescent beads. The beaded cast-on is a thing of beauty. So lovely in black!

    That stole is going to be ASTOUNDING. My town, like DC, has a… healthy amoount of cherry blossom trees, and I might have to make that some day.

    That alone made me giggle. It’s so good to laugh and not feel pain anymore.. Thank you for that. You’ve got some pretty beads there! Do I dare to incorporate beads into a project? I should stop being so chicken and just go for it.
    As for the house, no I don’t think repairs are ever done on an old house. My aunt bought one and was so overwhelmed with it she had to give it up.
