I started a new cowl last night – it will go well with my spring jacket for those blustery spring days – which hopefully will arrive sometime soon. The white yarn has speckles like confetti angelfood cake and the other is a minim mocha long color change yarn. The pattern is Helical Stripes and is a great pattern to learn how to make stripes in the round without the usual jog that occurs when you get to the end of a round – super easy and fun to see the different colored stripes form. Very Eastery looking colors.
When I went searching for the yarn last night I discovered there had been yet another leak in the sewing room closet from the apartment above. Luckily only some cotton yarn soaked up a bit of the water so I squished it dry with a towel and left the fan on it and the closet carpet overnight. The maintenance man was able to find the problem (new maintenance guy – the old one told me lots of reasons he thought there were leaks but none of them really sounded plausible). Could have been much more of a mess like the last time tho – thank goodness it was not. And when the maintenance man came back to pick up the big fan and check on things he brought a very pretty new light to install in my kitchen as a bonus. 🙂 There was just a one bulb fixture in the ceiling – within 15 minutes a new larger 3 bulb installed and it is so nice to have that bright light there.
Spent a good part of the day putting the closet back in order after everything was dry while this lovely quiche was baking – bacon, mushroom and asparagus. I would rather have had swiss cheese in it but forgot to buy some so cheddar it is. Looks like it turned out very good – and will be good with some of that fresh pineapple along side.
After I got the sewing room back in order – I was able to put up the rest of the blocks I had finished sewing yesterday (before discovering the water problem).
Still more to make but I need to cut some more pieces. I also need to fix that one rogue block at the bottom there – need to rip off one section and flip it around.
