It's a Little Einstein

Sally's right, you do feel like a genius when you get done with one of these sweaters. You knit this <-, make two folds and sew 2 seams and come up with this ->. A couple of buttons, a quick block, and another one ready for the donate pile. I've also got another pattern repeat done on the Celtic Icon, but it's not impressive enough to take pictures of.

Yesterday was shed day, and I have to say that these guys are not like the cable guy. They told me that they would be there between 8 and 10. My husband poked me at 7:45 and said, "I'm leaving and the shed guys are here." Great. I should confess that I'm not at my best first thing in the morning, especially Thursdays which are my sleep-in-a-little-then-do-mountains-of-laundry days. Luckily I didn't have to interact with them, but it's still a little weird taking a shower when you know there are strange men in the back yard. They did a good job though, from a pile of assorted shed bits to finished shed in about 4 hours. Now I just have to think of some clever way to get some of the ugly off of it. I'm thinking lots of trellises and trumpet vines. If that won't work maybe I'll smuggle in some Kudzu, cause that shed is not pretty.
