Knitting up a storm!

Lots of knitting has been happening in Celtic land these past few days and it feels grrrrrrrrreat to have the time to just kick back and knit. As of late the only time I've had for knitting has been during my breaks at work which just isn't cutting it for me. Amazing Lace is well underway and I've still got a loooooong way to go. So yesterday, my day off was devoted to knitting and laundry from our trip :) The evening I spent knitting on Butterfly. I was getting a tad bored of that 8 row repeat by the end of it but I have now finished the border and I'm ready to rock on the body of the vest.

During the day yesterday I chugged along on the project I started on the drive home from Boston. Its Ruby one of Sauniell's gorgeous patterns! The yarn I am using is mercerized cotton in a light pink that I had in my stash. I started the front this morning and hope to have it completed in a day or so, if I didn't have to go to work I'd probably have in done by tonight :)
You are probably wondering about my One Skein Wonder???? If you aren't then WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU! I finished that on sunday afternoon. You'll have to wait for pics as Moose and I are on opposite shifts at the moment. I must teach Sockies to use the camera.Mum and I sat out on the deck knitting away in the sunshine. It was a great day out but I'm afraid I ended up with lobster arms because of it. Mum cranked out a few dish cloths with one of my giant balls of cotton. She took it home with her so she could make some more. They are simple but cute. She used two by two ribbing. I see she left me two so I'll have to get them sewn up so I can use them :)

Now in demo news, my countertop and doors are ready to be put in. YIPPPEE!! If we can get the bases vanished and ready by the weekend Dad said he'll come down and put the rest in so I'll have a finished kitchen WOOT WOOT! Oh and while I remember the dish washer is faaaaaaabulous! No more dish washing and more knitting time :)

You have been BUSY! Lucky you with the dishwasher, too. I'm not ready for the kitchen gutting and redo that's necessary for me to fit one into my condo's tiny kitchen...
