So I've started the Hourglass sweater. I've already frogged it and restarted. Duh, I cant count. hehehe. I'm also still working on the mr's second sock. uggg. Second socks suck. Even after 6 months from the first one. oops. I cant wait to learn how to do 2 at once. Should be interesting. Thats actually all the knitting I have on the go right now. I've got lots planned, but am keeping myself back from starting them.

So our renovations are still going on. Here's a shot of the bathroom so far.
We still need to rip out that sink and counter and put in a pedestal sink. And the place of course needs crackfill, window trim and cupboards behind the door. And paint. I have NO idea what to paint it. I think I'm the worst person in the world when it comes to choosing paint colors. I kinda want to bring the beach colors into it. But dont know how. The light and new medicine cabinet (which i LOVE - it is brushed chrome, oval and is a medicine cabinet!) are both brushed chrome and everything else white. SO....any ideas? I like dark wicker but would that look stupid? To many different textures? AGGGG!
Anyways, the rest of the windows are changed and the siding is off the house and the new insulation is on. Now we cant side the house till the weather gets warmer cause we still need to build on the front extension. SO my house will look a little different for a little bit, but i love it! Just changing the windows has made a world of difference.
And here's my BAD Bo. He is sooo full of mischief. Cracks me up. I feel like i have another toddler running around! Speaking of toddlers, my oldest is driving me crazy. She is soo bad. Wont eat anything i put in front of her and tests everything i say. Everyone says to have patience, but man...i'm starting to go crazy!! Shes only 2. How am I going to get through two terrible 2's in a row?

The reno is looking good. As for color ... I had too much trouble finding the right colour for my bathroom to give advice to someone :) but I went with toupe and sand for the walls and I did sky blue onthe ceiling so I could paint clouds on it. Looks pretty good but the clouds are not finished yet.

Bo has to be the cutest little thing ever! Talk about adorable.

Hi Michelle! Your bathroom colors sound similar to what I'm looking for. We were thinking about bringing in some wainscotting...dunno. We've got to take a trip to Fredericton and check out the paint stores.
Yes, Bo is cute but man oh man he's sooooooo bad!! LOL. I love him!

Hi! I saw your blog on the Canadian Fibre Arts web ring and wanted to stop by. I'm in NB as well and haven't come across many knitting blogs (yet) of people in NB. I'm in the Hub City, what about you...if you don't mind saying where you're from.

Wow - lots of reno work but it's coming along - I've seen Michelle's bathroom reno and the beach colors are really nice and soothing. You could do something similar for sure. That Bo - OMG he is too cute. All feet, nose and ears at that age - I could just eat him up.

Bo is so sweet. My lab is six years old and sometimes it's still like having an extra toddler running around. LOL
