I am so ready to be done painting. Our whole house is on end because of this project. You find out how much space livingroom furniture takes up when you start shoving it into every other room of the house. I did finally settle on a faux technique for the two walls, though. After trying four or five styles that I thought might be 'elegant' and 'sophisticated', I've decided to sponge. Ya, sponge. Who'd uv thunk? I got the first color on today, and tomorrow I do the other one.
This evening I was able to sneak a little knitting (or should I say "un-knitting) time out on my patio. It was a perfect day for it. I did the goofiest thing---frogged a dishcloth that was only a few rows from being finished! "Why?", you may ask. Well, because it was too big. It was going to end up being 11-1/2 inches square, and that's kinda over-big and hard to wring out. The pattern said 8-1/2 inches, so I was way off from that. I am going to make it again, though, because I liked the way it was turning out. It was made with "bee stitch" which was fun and easy to do, and gives a nice texture. Who knows, maybe I'll even send it to my Dog Days of Summer spoilee!!!
I don't know how I happened to notice it now, but a couple of posts ago I was describing some yarn and used the word "textile" instead of "tactile" in my description. Finding that made me feel like everyone in blogdom must be saying, "Tee hee; that poor girl is as dumb as a box of rocks. She fancies herself a fiber enthusiast and doesn't even know her textile from her tactile." Well, of course I know that's not the case (is it?), but I couldn't get in there fast enough to edit that post!! :o)
