I love this inlay we did in the entryway (it's pre-grout in this pic):
We lived rather .... simply, at the beginning. Only a recliner, a sofa, and of course, the Big Screen.
I'm pleased to say that we have finally finished the tiling part, we are in the process of painting all the walls and ceilings (and by We, I mean, Hubby), and fashioning built-in bookcases where there were none before.
Some of the completed bits, the lounge and dining room. Need to hang pictures back up though.
Because of all this, my knitting time has been drastically reduced. I had to simply put away my Mystery Stole 3, a mere 26 or 27 rows away from casting off. SOB!!! But I knew better than to risk its wonderful goodness in all this mortar, grout, sawdust, and paint. I will still finish it before Christmas and have it ready to gift out to its intended.
I haven't denied myself totally though -- I've been knitting on the Queen of Cups socks in Fearless Fiber Prosperity colorway, superwash merino sock yarn. It's a lovely pattern and the yarn is dreamy.
