I can't believe March is half over already. We've officially been house hunting for 4 months. It's a long and arduous process of rushing through a house, going home to think about it some, then calling or emailing the realtor for next steps. Most often we're not interested. 40-odd houses in 4 months. Today, we went back to a house for the 2nd time. The only other time we did this was in December when we put an offer out. And lost it. Today, right before our trip to potential-house-candidate #2, I found out that the house we didn't get sold for $5k LESS than we offered...WHY??? Just when I was beginning to understand the market, I get thrown this wrench. What does this mean??? I shouldn't care - move forward. Not back. Don't think about what you can't have only what you can. So...keep you posted if we offer on house #2.
For now - KNITTING! Yesterday, I came home to 2 packages and a postcard!
It's for the Project Spectrum Postcard Swap! Thank you my darling Postcard Pal! it's beautiful! Yours will be out later in the week...it's been tre busy at chez Peony this week!
I also got my Silk Garden from Hot Designer Yarns at ebay! So excited to start Lady E, but that won't happen for a Y-L. A LOOOONG Y-L. Hmmmm. Pink and Red. I think this qualifies for Project Spectrum, whadda ya think?
I also got the first half of my knitpicks order...
The petal (pink) merino style is 1/2 of the necessary yarn for Eunny's Deep V Argyle Vest. The other 1/2 is asparagus green, and is on backorder until 4/7. Boo! Hiss! I am excited though, because Kathy Ruth and Eunny have both used these colors...and they look FABOO together, and so spring-y! Now...to start swatching in (2 handed?) fair isle...but not just yet.
Must. Finish. Grumpecue. Due for the shower on 3/26. I don't have a whole lot of time! AAAAHHHH! Only 33% done. I don't even want to figure out how long it will take me at this speed...I'm further than the photo now, but not much. Any advice on how to knit faster? PLEEEASE??? Sorry for the cryptic photo...babymama may be peeking :)
