to getting the freakin' stove in!! The electrician came this morning to
laugh at inspect the wiring in our crap shack and give us a quote on running a new line to the kitchen. We picked a range with a gas cooktop / electric oven, which is why we need a bit of a modification to the existing configuration. I love it! So pretty,... but anything would be prettier than our current frankenstove setup.
My knitting has been suffering a bit this week, but I managed to cast on for one of the fronts of the Must Have cardi. I used a twisted German cast-on for the first time. It's more time consuming than the basic long-tailed cast on I usually use, but totally worth the extra effort -- it makes such a pretty and stretchy edge!!
I also cast on for the Ribby Cardi on the knitting machine -- Monday night, I think. I hate to leave pieces half done on the machine, but hand manipulating the ribbing is taking longer than anticipated, even with using the handy dandy multi-latch tool, so I'm only about halfway up the back. If I have some time tonight, AFTER my Stitches W. homework is done, I'll try and get that finished up. Pics later!
