Beautiful Knitting

Piping, Knitting, and a Visual To-Do List

Posted by mtmom on July 19, 2010

It’s been a fantastic, though exhausting, 10 days of Piping School and Highland Games.  Our 10-year-old dd enrolled in the United States School of Piping, so we spent the week (8:30 to 5 most days, plus 7 to 8 most evenings, Friday the 9th to Friday the 16th) in classes and practice sessions and recitals and parades.  (I haven’t sorted through all those photos yet.  Will post some here later.)  Then we attended our local Highland Games and Celtic Festival, with competitions, vendors, and more performances and parades!

As one consequence, however, I have accumulated a potentially overwhelming backlog of personal and household tasks.

Some progress

Yet to tackle. . . .

The hall bathroom.

The laundry.

One down. . .

. . . 2 more loads . . .

. . . another 1 or 2 loads . . .

. . . and several sinks' worth of hand-laundry. . . to go!

On the knitting front:

I showed Robert my long swatch of potential yarns, he selected one (later, also a 2nd), and I have begun work on his second pair of kilt hose.

Foot #1 for Pair #2

I have also garnered some kilt hose repair work.

Work ahead!

Ah, but what lovely subjects to work on!

More on each of these pairs in future posts — stay tuned!

    I like the green kilt hose, can’t wait to see the progress on them – oh I’m so impatient!

    Caught up on the laundry yesterday, and cleared out the other part of the bathroom counter and drawers today. Hurray!

    Plus, for Robert: 1 foot to the ankle + 4.5″, and other foot to 60%
