As promised, pictures! It may not be much, but here are the projects in progress or projects to come……..since I still have no kitchen to unpack
See my empty cabinets?

they were supposed to have doors ages ago.

Still nothing (note the pathetic take-out on the fridge).

So, instead of unpacking the kitchen while Kevin is in Japan (the original plan), I’m getting organized with the knitting.

I’m only inches away from the first sock:

The heel was a challenge, but it’s free sailing until the toe. Not bad! I think I might bail on the somewhat drab gray, black and not quite white stripes. Why? Because I found this:

The lack of flash doesn’t do justice, but beautiful rainbow yarn! Can’t wait to start those socks!
But first, the baby gift. Mackenzie Rose will get a cute little sweater and hat…I hope. Here’s the pattern:

(Sorry about the bad lighting again…the better-lit picture was rotated the wrong way and I can’t figure this picture thing out yet)

And the yarn….The edges of the sweater will be pink and the rest purple…the hat the opposite. What do you think? Good idea? I think it could work.

Once all that’s done, it’s back to the blanket (ok. I’m sure I’ll get in a row or 10 here or there when I’m feeling the urge to work another inch on the interminableness of a 6 foot blanket)….this is as far as I’ve gotten……..

Check back at Christmas. Maybe the blanket will be done. Mackenzie Rose will probably have outgrown the baby clothes, and I doubt my kitchen will look much different. Oh, how I’d love to be proven wrong!!
