Pictures for L & L

What's the point of having technology if you're not gonna exploit it.
Unless you're L & L, this post will make no sense to you, sorry.

Here's what I took pictures of:
First flight of stairs...not too bad.
These are the second flight of stairs up to your place.

So I forgot to take a picture of the actual front door, but imagine after your grueling flights of stairs, you go to the right.

Front door with closet for rain stuff.
At the closet, turning right again you're at the bedroom-side of the place.

From the door of the tiny room. That is a HUGE table in there.

Tiny room's closet:
This is the other view of the tiny room--I'm standing at the window. (The view is of the garages.)
Left of the tiny room is the master bedroom:

Huge bed in a good sized room.

Master bedroom's closet:
The MB has a door to the bathroom (facing the bedroom door, it's on the left side), so that's next:
So there's a shower stall to the right, I think...I missed it as it's behind the door.
Washer/dryer are in the ginormous bathroom. They face the bathtub. The toi-toi is to the left, adjacent the W-D closet.
Toi-toi, washer and dryer are to the left.
I hadn't noticed the storage up top. Good thing you're both short...
His and Hers sinks! Oh, you can kinda see me in the mirror. I'm standing in the master bedroom. There's another door to the left into the hallway.
Out the other door and to the right again (notice a trend here?)
Living've probably seen this picture. I decided I'd not include a picture of the Franklin stove as you've probably already seen that too.
The HUGE patio :). There is storage there too...I'm glad Andy was with me, duh, I can't believe I took a picture of that door and didn't notice it....
So then changing drastically TO THE LEFT: Dining area:
Dining area:
Dining room to kitchen
View of Kitchen from patio door:
Meh, stove, but it's clean.
Fridge--small counter space between fridge and stove.
Dishwasher, meh:
The kitchen is "L" shaped, so the dishwasher/sink is on one side of the L, stove fridge on the other.

Then you're back at the little hallway that leads to the front door. "G" was standing right there so I opted not to take a'd have loved his little mustache...hoo baby.

Yours is the second garage in, from this angle it's the closer one to you.

Bus stop.

Let me know when to delete this post...or I can leave it up for posterity's sake, up to you :)

Awfully Remiss

But I'm planning on updating, honest. Do you ever wonder how long Blogger waits to delete a blog from lack of postings? Obviously, I do. Though I'm not wishing to find out.

Cascade Hats

I guess I was waiting until I did all three, I could have sworn I posted about the others here too! Oh well. These are a family of hats in Cascade 220. The two little ones in front I made using my own pattern, now posted here. The big one in back was a flub of big proportions when I tried to follow the pattern for the Needle-Felted Hat in Knit Hats! It was just too big for the person intended.

Socks Only a Mother Could Love

Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit Fun & Stripes

Needles: US 2 for the start of the ribbing, then US 1 for the rest

Pattern: Umm, cuff, heel, and toe from "Classy Slip Up" in Knit Socks. The body of the socks are plain ole' stockinette.

Striped yarn is good for striping. Not good for a pattern as it tends to get lost.

Panta Take 2

Noro Panta:
Views of both sides:


I gushed endlessly here so I'll just repost the pics for the Gallery's sake :).

My first Socks

From Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits For Beginners, her 2-Needle Socks. As I had both the time and the patience, I did both the 3 & 6th month sizes. I used Debbie Bliss Wool/Cotton but don't ask me the colors if they're not grey and purple because the tags seem to have floated away somewhere.

Hey Look, Panta Take 1

Panta: A "Brazilian" Headband from a Finnish Pattern:

Here we have my lovely metal mixing bowl to model the headband that, unfortunately DID NOT FIT...(sigh). Made from Cascade 220 on US 5s (as the pattern recommended). But yes, Cascade 220 was not the correct yarn for the needle size, I am chastened, worry not. I've long ago lost the color lot info, and keep telling everyone it's a Burgundy/black combination, I apologize, next time I promise I'll be better with those pesky tags. Here's a view of the back:
A close-up for the detail-seekers:

A fun and fast knit. I have purchased some Noro for my US 5s to try again. Not to mention I'm going to follow Deceptively Packaged's advice and cut some inches from the total circumference to take into effect the whole stretching ability that wool has.

Pattern was from you kinda have to search it. I think I may have ended up Googling it for a clear, English "interpretation" rather than straight translation.
