I never usually post if I don’t have an image of some sort, but I think I’ll have to make an exception this time around – I’m just much too tired to find an image or to take one, but there’s no catching up to emails under these circumstances so I’m hoping a few of you will see this post and understand.

In short, the renovations are still in full swing. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, but there’s so much left to be done that it’s hard to tell when it’ll be over. I know a lot of you are waiting for issue 3 of the magazine and I promise you will love it – my friends have really outdone themselves – but it will have to wait a little while longer. I mean it… only a little while longer.

Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, I’ll take any support I can get – yes, renovations are that hard.

Watched this documentary last night – if you get a chance, make sure to watch it as well. We really enjoyed it.

I thought about beginning this post with a statement to the effect that ‘times flies’  but I quickly came to my senses – no, time definitely does not fly in the midst of renovations or as part of a move, for that matter. More like, time crawls and crawls…

Nothing seems to be easy anymore – I had some orders to fill this week and it must have taken 8 hours to get 6 little boxes prepared. Why so long? Well, one of the renovations projects is the basement. It was a bare unfinished space when we bought the house, and its intended use is for it to be my office and main stock room. In the meantime, all my yarn resides on pallets in the garage. But! The kitchen also needed work – it didn’t have any ventilation for the range and we had to go through the living room to get to the garden – and we figured we’d be better off getting everything done at once. So, not only is the garage filled with yarn and everything that belongs in my office but all the cabinets that are being recycled are also in there. Oh, and the usual garage stuff. Finding a specific bag of yarn in there is an adventure.

I could go on, but I won’t – suffice it to say that there are fun obstacles for every task at hand. It’ll be great once it’s done, I know… when it’s done!
