Oh My Aching Back

For those of you who were concerned let me just say, yes Kris lived through yesterday. I may have woken him up at every possible opportunity, but I did not inflict any physical injury. After much consideration I decided to use my time yesterday morning working on the Celtic Icon sweater. I am 3/8ths of the way through the second sleeve. I haven't done the fronts or back yet because I use the sleeve as my gauge swatch. So far things are looking good. The wool is a little stiff, but I'm hoping that will be fixed during the blocking process.

Since Kris is now a man of leisure (although his leisure is going to be done before 4:00 from this point on) we all decided that he should move from his old bedroom to the larger guest room in the basement. Alas, this means that the amount of space available for me and my wool/crafting suppiles is smaller as well. It also means that the last 3 days have been a continual process of hauling heavy boxes and furniture either up or down the basement stairs. It has been a very tiring process but this is the result:

Yes, that is a closet. The rest of the room still has to function as a guest room leaving me with a small, but cutely organized space. I can't help but noticing that I don't appear to like either orange or yellow, but I'm all over green and white. Must be my Irish Catholic coming through somehow.

I like the organzinger thingy. You have all the yarn in. The sleve your knitting looks good also. Keep it up.
