Spring (or an early summer to be more accurate) is here!
The weather is sunny and hot and all I want is to spend more time outdoors.
We have started preparing the garden and hopefully we will plant our tomatoes, eggplants, zucchini etc during the weekend.
Meanwhile, our turtles are enjoying our salad leftovers….
Our house is slowly starting to look more like a house.
There are now some bricks but nothing special to show you yet.
When I casted on my stripy socks, the ceiling of the main floor/floor of the attic had just been built and we had to wait for 28 days for the cement to dry. But cement gets stronger if it is wet all the time. So, we had a schedule to water the floor 6 times a day!
While F was watering, I was in charge of the faucet.
And knitting my socks 😛
If they look different to you than their WIP post, it is because I ripped the first one off because I got a little obsessed with the stripes on the heel.
I feel much better with this result (after 4 attempts) and with having matching socks (after a mild breakdown).
So, now that one critical chapter of our HIP is done, another one begins.
Walls. Brick walls.
I thought it will be great if my knitting is accompanying our house in a way.
And I dream of a drawer full of hand knitted socks in our new house.
And I enjoy knitting socks so much!
I decided to knit a pair in every big part of the construction, while I am at the construction.
This pattern seems to be on everyone’s needles lately, and I admit to be a Harry Potter enthusiast as well, so it was a perfect match.
These will be my Walls-up socks and I have about 3 weeks to finish them.
Also I’m waiting for F to get some free time to make me wooden sock blockers, as he promised me!
How lucky am I???
How amazing is he?!
