I can hardly believe my eyes

A mere 712 days after it was purchased....

...the door was installed! It looks awesome, Tommy is turning into a master carpenter. Maybe someday he will build me a house. I painted that wall "Vanilla white". I have decided to go with a creamy white and charcoal grey color in that addon room and I will try to carry that on throughout the house. Maybe a little yellow in the kitchen.

We also started painting the ceiling in the add on last night, the same color, vanilla. We are using this new Benjamin Moore paint called Aura, the primer is built right in, so you just go ahead and paint. So far it looks great, I'm pretty impressed with the coverage.

And I finally finished my socks last night! I knit the Sunday Swing pattern off knitty. It was a really nice pattern and fits just perfectly! It was my first time knitting the heel with a heel flap and gusset, it looked a little weird, but it fits really nice! Onto to my next project, and Vintage style hat, made out of dark blue alapaca....mmmm. Just knitting with it is glorious....what a lucky head this will be!

I noticed on another blog that you can put a ravelry button on your page and have you WIP bar showing. But I cannot for the life of me get this to work. If anyone out there in this world wide web can give me instructions or tips, I would greatly appreciate it!

My internet has been dropping horrendously since Friday...I was wondering if it is related to the Olympics and all the extra people on the servers? I clearly have no idea how that works, all I know is I have a dial tone, so why the !$#@ isn't my internet working!!!! Hopefully this will clear up soon! Like in about 14 days. Go Canada.
