What a happy day! I finally made it and gave the finishing touches to the barn doors this afternoon. And it’s not just the one I showed you a picture of the other day – no, all of them are done! Finally! :)
Okay, they don’t look exactly as good as new as I said they would, but they do look as good as doors that are more than 50 years old can look. No idea how old they really are, because they were already there and weathered and worn when I was a kid. Anyway, happy I’m done with that job.
My knitting time was limited thanks to the doors, but I did finish something nevertheless and it’s actually something I was about to frog. When I was searching for a 2.25 mm needle the other day I remembered that there’s one in use for the doily, one of my ‘I can’t remember when I started this’ WIPs and I was just about to pull it out when Ulli said: You want to rip that out? Really? The colour is pretty. And well, he’s right. So I put the project on our kitchen table for an occasional round with my morning coffee and funnily enough I even enjoyed it. The crochet cast off not so much and we won’t talk about blocking the thing… but it’s done. And looks quite nice. Love the feeling of accomplishment.
And now to cast on lots of projects that were spinning around in my head while busy with the boring painting job. And I better do it right away, since there’s another renovation job we’ve got on our list for this summer…
