Things are crazy over at the Avocado House right now. We are getting our final inspection of the renovations tomorrow, and if everything is approved we can finally move in!
Of course, we had plenty of last-minute work to do before the place was inspection-ready, including installing the toilet and sink/vanity in the bathroom…which still isn’t done yet…but it will be before tomorrow!
Anyway, about knitting. I’m getting close to finishing my Haruni shawl for my mom’s birthday, which is Friday. I’m not sure if I’ll finish exactly on time, but I don’t think she’ll mind. I love watching the leaves as they grow, row by row.
Overall it’s been a very fun knit, and surprisingly easy. It looks complex, but really it is a matter of counting and patterns. I would recommend the pattern, as it also has very good instructions and clear charts.
I’m also still chugging away at the ol’ sweatpants. It’s slow progress since I mostly have only been knitting them at home, as they are now very big and bulky. I’m hoping to finish sometime this year…
I’ve been thinking about what my next projects are going to be (other than the baby knits!) and I’ve been browsing lots of different yarn possibilities. I’m really attracted to the idea of using 100% American-sourced fiber. Do any of you know of good companies that do this?
