Who knew that a simple bookcase would turn the living room inside out? When we bought the new TV stand, we also purchased a matching bookcase to go with it. Hubby had this week off so we dismantled the old bookcase and while the furniture was out, I had the brilliant idea to rearrange a few things. After 2 days, the only thing that hasn't moved is the TV/stand & the big sofa. Everything else in the living room is switched around. Not totally sure that I'm done but I think it's an improvement.

I am still working on Vicki's socks. I've made a few mods to the original pattern that I hope are improvements. I've just finished the heel turn. I hate p2togtbl's.

I finished the first Lorna's Laces sock.

I don't know why but I'm completely enchanted with the solid heel & toe.

I've also been working on the Lace Ribbon Scarf.

I started this ages ago and put it down but when I don't feel like working on a sock, this is getting some attention.

Ricky sez, "Look into my eyes... I want to go for walkies NOW!!!"

He has been such a pest. It was raining Tues & Wed and he wanted to go outside so badly. Ricky would walk up to the back door, roll around, and paw at the edge. I finally gave in and put the harness on him. We walked out onto the back stoop, he hopped down to the lower step, got his paws wet, and stopped. He finally clued in that it was raining. We stayed outside for 5 mins while he tried to find somewhere dry to walk then I picked him up and took him inside. After I unclipped him from his harness, he wandered off to snooze - content that I'd done his bidding.

Having done a similar thing earlier this year with a new tv stand and bookcases, I know how something that seems simple can get way out of hand!

Too funny, Ricky! Reminds me of the first few pages of Robert Heinlein's book The Door into Summer.

Sock looks good!!!

I need to rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and figure out a better organization/storage system for my yarn.

I love your lace ribbon scarf. So pretty!

Oh Ricky, Ricky, Ricky, why don't you like the wet? For some reason our dogs don't like it either.

Your lace ribbon scarf is great! Thanks for the hint about the interchangeable buttons, I may just do that.
