Book - Yarn - Cards


We should be celebrating!! 

We have finally heard word from our insurance company, but only after a call made to them from our lawyer. After almost three weeks in waiting and being accused of adding and building on to our home and stating that our home was under evaluated  (trust me we most certainly do not  have money for that!) the insurance company admitted to the fault being entirely theirs and they have put through our claim and will be covering everything!
I am elated yet at the same time utterly exhausted. It may be from the stress of the past two and a half weeks finally coming to an end?

The flu like symptoms, I was telling you all about at our last link-up with Ginny's Small Things Yarn Along, have seemed to improve. Well except for the exhaustion so I am pleased for that.  I'm sure as we start getting our home in order and unpack and repack when the construction work comes to an end I will start to finally catch up with myself. I cant wait!

I finished White Oleander over the weekend. What a book. If you havent read it you need to add it your list of books to read. Really!! I think I will leave it at that. 
I have started on Just Another Kid By Torey L Hayden. I am not that far into it, perhaps a few pages or a chapter at the least. I predict this one to be a goodie too. 
I will let you all know in the weeks to come *wink*.

I finally found (well actually Oumie found) a star knit pattern for the front of the hot water bottle cover. I will start working on that soon. In the meantime I have be clinking the needles together and finishing off a couple more "Dish Towels". So now I have one in natural, blue/natural and green/natural. There are still about 3 or 4 more balls of each colour. So hopefully by the time I have gone through them all the "Dish Towels" may turn into something else? I started a knit project in the beginning of the year and when I feel the need for a change from what I am working on I go and work a little on it. The needles are on the small side and the wool is a soft double knit so its best to knit when I have a sufficient amount of light. There is no rush to finish this one, when the urge arises then I will pick it up and knit up a few more rows.

Thank you for stopping by! 
I love reading all your comments and ~ well ~ just knowing that you there!

I'm glad the insurance company Is going to come through, they can be so difficult.
Don't you just love knit dish cloths? They are all I use and I really need to knit more,
mine look kind of sad.

What a relief about the insurance! I am knitting dishcloths right now - they are just great. I use them to practice stitches I want to try out.

What craziness. They should not have put you though such unnecessary stress like that. But I'm glad you are on your way to having things taken care of. I love those spring like colored dishcloths. They make me smile!

oh my gosh, I cannot believe I have had White Oleander on the book shelf for years (possibly decade), I may just have to get it out and snuggle up on the couch ... and try to forget about the snow, lol.

this is the first time making dish cloths - so I am looking forward to putting them to good use as soon as my kitchen is all fixed up.

Angie Allan said...

thank you - I thought your rainbow lap blanket is beautiful!!

Angie Allan said...

yes they are - I am finding though that this particular yarn is more hardy and a little like cord to do anything but garter stitch - I will try again though.. add a little extra!
oh and congratulations!!!

Angie Allan said...

Oh Christina - you will love it!! the whole book most certainly reads like a poem! I cried..... A lot..!!

Angie Allan said...

Thank you Donna! and I am loving the colours that sleeve for your sweater.. It makes me feel and think of Autumn - which should be appearing around these parts any time soon!

I am so glad to hear that things have worked out - nothing worse than dealing with insurance companies and they are supposed to be there when you need them!
I love knitting dishcloths - I love the colours and it's fun to finish something quickly that I can really use!
