It’s been an interesting 2023 so far and I’m beyond thankful to say I have finally found a new allergy treatment for Spring with tolerable side effects! Riding the high wave of increased energy, curtailed nasal symptoms, and mostly clear thinking (a weird side effect is neurological, but one that impacts my speech not my thought process), and celebrating the crossing of 41 yesterday, today I pulled the Meanwhile in Maine design out of the sin bin to resume writing and knitting!
A few dedicated hours later, the pattern is in much more comprehensible shape from the shoulders to the arm openings. With 2 rows of set up still in question, the rewrite on the upper back went smoothly – hurrah!
In addition to picking up the Meanwhile in Maine design, I’ve been busy with 3 other patterns. I’ll be posting 3 test knits / review knits next week. A gorgeous secret collaboration sweater (with both long and sleeveless options), an easy brioche shawl, and a special design for Mother’s Day. Keep your eye out for the calls (and make sure you’re signed up to receive test knit emails).
Now the for the exciting news… Meanwhile in Maine:
Camera dad arrived back in Maine in March and contracted with the cabinet makers and a dry wall guy (who is also a painter)! The biggest news… a roofer is almost ready to start!!! Our original roofing product came in 3 times the price from last year so we had several weeks of testing out new options that are closer to what was budgeted. After much debate, Charcoal is the winner. The electricians who were scheduled for rough in over March were hit by the big C, but as they come out the other side, they’ve rescheduled restarting April 17th. Progress!! I’m so exited!!!
Happy Easter, knitters!!
I’m so happy for your progress on the Maine house! 🥰
thank you, Cindy!!
