chez spidey

hello all!
i am moved in and blissfull. The lateness of this update is embarrasing really... my camera got packed somewhere and i couldnt find it :p. Lame i know, but as if you didnt know that already. i am hopeless. utterly so.

the car has sold.
i'm going back to work on friday. it's not open for business, as the roof got pulled in, but my boss is too scared to lose me so i'm going in to clean glass ware or something. whatever, i have an income again.
and on saturday the ladies and i are going to Young for cherries and yarn! huzzah!

however, due to not working i have been left to my own devices most days when sherpa is working, and after a certain amount of cleaning and unpacking... i hit the stash.
i have spun all this yarn:
produced this many squares for my blanket (there are more but they havent been seamed):
knit these socks in 4 1/2 days (online sock yarn bought at the craft and quilt fair. pattern was an interweave knits one):
this scarf in 2 days (briar rose yarn i won, Brooke's colomn of leaves scarf):
these socks so far, 2 1/2 days (Lana Grossa Cotton Fantasie, variation on Brenda Dayne's pembrokeshire pathways socks):
this baby sweater in about 8 hours including seaming (Lang Mille Colori, simple raglan sweater from Baby Knits by Debbie Bliss, with enough left over for a little hat too!):
finished little mini-shawl thing:
finished my mini clapotis:

My darling friend Taph also donated a drop spindle to my stash and i've been having fun with that too. dont know if it will ever replace the wheel for me but its fun and portable (and if i want to really annoy my stupid aunt i'll do it at christmas dinner, heh heh heh).

this is, as promised, the house:
Bedroom you have seen and i'm not making the bed to take a photo :p
Shelf a la knitting et stash! lounge is very fibre friendly

Dodgy little kitchen:
garden (front)
garden (back):

the side of the house
My vege patch (which has expanded heaps)
My little flower bed which we bordered with pavers (much work!!)
Hammock (mhuah ha ha ha haaaa)

View from said hammock!!
Well... dont quite know what else to say. dont want everyone to be so overwhelmed they cant comment!

oh and i will have some yarn on eBay again soon, my bulk white wool shipment was delayed :p

the busy
Ms Spider xo

    you happy little domestic goddess, you! My goodness. Worth the wait in posts to see your output. I'm stunned. My pick - the scarf. Just beautiful!

    Ah, to not be at work and have time for all the stash fun. I dream.....

    I can't believe you moved, unpacked, and knitted every possible garment under the sun in that amount of time. Now I know why you haven't posted in awhile! Glad you are back.
