The Devil is in the Details...

Another busy week has flown by. Still no sewing for me, but I am making headway. Except for the tote of LightSong embroidery Sioux brought me. The work flows out...the work flows in... Tom has been sick, but felt well enough today to go to work, so once I get off the computer it's time to rock. Lots of chores to do, schedules to rearrange (someone made multiple appointments for the same time...wasn't me!!!). 
Yesterday we took a little day trip to Vernonia to check out a log home open house. Hank has been courting us because he would like us to build our retirement home with his company. The home was beautiful except it was located in a really odd location midst some really dumpy homes. Oh well, we were not there to check out the 'hood. It was great to see the flat log interior inside, I think that is how I would like to go, but I've never been inside one with the natural round long interior, so we will go check that out next. We did find a floor plan that is close to what we have in mind, so that's a start.
I'm still running with the Iknitarod. The back is finished and the first front piece is going well. It has a fairly easy 14 row cable repeat that is actually ingrained in my head now. I think maybe I need to make some socks next...something quick and easy, but Knitty did have a cute cardi that I may have to make. We'll see how I feel when the race is over!
Well, it's almost 7:30...time to get rolling. Catch you all on the flip side...

what is this Iknitarod? hmmm. I have only knit baby socks this year. And scarfs that are being turned into a housewarming blanket. And the only sewing I've done is for charity. UGH! I want to do something totally selfish and don't have the time. g

Hey Gaylen,
The Iknitarod is like the knitting Olympics...you knit a challenging project during the race and try to be finished before they award the red lantern (the award for last place). There is a group on Ravelry. I haven't knot the last 2 nights because my hands have been sore. Have you watched the latest Army Wives?

I babysat for people with a log house with the round logs inside, and it was always dark. Really dark. The logs didn't bounce the light back straight, so I think that is the cause. But they had a loft overlooking the great room, which I really liked. Good luck with your Iknitarod projects!
