He Paints While She Knits.................
A hundred years ago, my husband was a painter (the house kind). He's one of those types of people that actually enjoy painting. Thank goodness!
The walls in our house were originally painted in 3 colors. The ceiling was an off white, the walls were sort of peachy and all the baseboards, doorjams, doors and window sills were bright white.
So, we decided that a darker shade might look good on some of the walls to tone it all down a bit.
The hardest part was deciding which walls to do and not going overboard. I think it turned out splendidly!
So, while my husband was busy doing all of that, I've been knitting away on these projects for a yarn company that I still can't tell you about!
But, I can show you the sock pattern that I'm still working on for our Etsy and Ravelry stores. I switched yarns and need to finish up the second green one and then type up the pattern.
It's a fancy rib pattern down the leg and foot and I really like such patterns for socks because it adds stretch and conforms to the foot so nicely.
Give me a bit longer and I'll get it up and running as quickly as I can. We'll even do a giveaway soon for the pattern.
Hope your Labor Day weekend is a great one.
