Hi everyone!  I’ve been busy winding skeins of yarn into balls.  This is Fleece Artist’s Canada’s 150th Birthday National Parks yarn in DK weight.  Great for hats, neck warmers, and fingerless mitts.  I plan to make more hats from Anne Budd’s book “The Handy Book of Knitting Patterns” and the DROPS neck warmer and wrist warmers pattern on Ravelry.  We have a nice little setup in the basement now.  I was able to clamp the ball winder to the table we moved down here.  I don’t own a swift.  Instead I used the back of a chair.  Worked well.  Next up is to find the right sized needles and cast on!

This is a bit more challenging than usual.  We have no sofa down here.  Instead we have three lawn chairs with cushions on them for a bit of padding.  My knitting is in bags underneath the lawn chairs.  I’m going to have to sort through the various bags to see where I managed to put my knit needles.  I don’t think they made it back to their proper place after the last project.

Meanwhile…painters are busy painting the upstairs or second floor of the house.  Hopefully they’ll be done soon and onto the main floor.  I think it’s going to be a tight schedule to finish before the floor refinishers come later this month!  Must check in with the floor refinishers soon.

As for my health, recent tests show I am improving.  However I’ve been told I’m on this medication for the rest of my life.  Sigh.  What a pain.  Still, it’s better than the alternative!!!

Take care everyone, wherever you are.  Talk at you later.  Have a great week!
