The egg has hatched

You know, I just love reading all of the blogs out there. Unfortunately, that can take a lot of time out of my day! Especially bad when I am! Ah well. I have been busy with other things.

As I hinted in my last post, I've been working on a secret project. I've become a first time home owner, with my lovely guy (and Oscar too, of course)! I am so happy to have the opportunity to purchase my own place - especially in Victoria. We are now living in a wonderful 3-bedroom townhouse on a quiet little street close to downtown. There is lots of work to be done, but we are looking forward to making the place our own. Very importantly, I have my own craft room/office! Yah! Finally, place to put all of my various yarn, fabric, paper, and ribbons (and to work in peace and quiet). I have been designing the room in my head, but it will have to wait until later this year to be painted as I just don't have the time right now to tackle such a project. I'm thinking robin's egg blue for the walls ... any suggestions as to what paint/colour I should use? Oh, these look like pretty colours:

Yes, I've finished my scarf from Victorian Lace Today, but haven't had an opportunity to block it out. Actually, I haven't been knitting much at all these past few weeks. My wrists and arms have taken a beating with all of the cleaning (new place), moving, cleaning (old place), typing (thesis), and computer use (that blog reading again) I've been occupying my time with. I am itching to finish my Icarus shawl and start something new though!

Here's a pic of the unblocked VLT scarf - I'll list out the details in a later post once I get a pretty picture.
