Um, yeah, every day on transit is knit in public day. Today, I just could not face taking transit for more than an hour each way to hit the sort of local WWKIP event. I know all my knitting peeps (gosh, I’m so hip) were all there. Me? I was here:
I also had some company:
Then later, there was more company:
Then I was overwhelmed with company:
Turns out, I’m wicked popular with the four legged/hairy set! I think it’s because my opposable thumbs can open their bags of treats.
Oh yeah, we also built the final kitchen island the other day:
We ended up rotating that far right cabinet and made it into a drawer cabinet instead of a shelf cabinet. Now we have a place near the fridge for pop…and chips…and pretzels…and cookies…damn, I just gave away the snack drawer. Didn’t I?
Island? Um no, that’s a continent. I’m going to call it Australia. Wait, that’s not been used, hasn’t it? Hmmmm, okay, how about Beentsylvania? Right, I like it. Today we built some drawers and stuff and now it looks like this:
That’s my favourite spot to sit and read, Internet, snack, everything really. I’ve spent more time in the kitchen in the last week than I have in the last year. It’s just so much nicer than it was before and I’m deeply, madly, passionately in love with this little corner of it.
There are shelves and doors for the left hand open space and an end cover piece for that light coloured bit on the right. The entire thing is something like 6 feet by 5.5 feet. We’re prolly going to cut it down to about 5.5 by 5.5 feet. That seems somewhat more logical for a household of two people! That way we can seat 6 comfortably. ‘Cause we’re always having dinner parties for 6. ANYWAY…
We absolutely over planned and over built this entire kitchen. Story of our lives. You should see when I make chili. I could feed a football team.
Okay, I’m going back outside to spin some more. I have 8 ozs of that fibre and it is calling me and begging to be made into yarn so I can knit it up for something lovely.
