Hubby has made it to the landing for the next portion of the staircase. Now he gets to work on a level surface, instead of an angle. Of course, this just means that he could possibly go right over the edge of the landing instead of just tumble down the stairs themselves, should something go wrong or the cat trip him.
Upper newel posts primed/painted.
Drilling the holes for the rails.
Clamping the pieces for support while drilling.

I have actually been knitting. The Presto Chango baby Sweater has reached the back neck opening. So far I've used up one complete skein of Wool of the Andes Bulky to get to this point.
