It was either when I was at Graf that I made a major miscalculation, or perhaps it was today. But I went into our bathroom, took a look, then measured. When I was finished, the rest of the family at first thought I was completely out of my mind. Now, I am not sure what I thought before, but where fixtures look to be right now is not where I agreed they would be.
And the attempted rational discussion from my DH in DC and Boston Airports did little to placate me. There were major assumptions made on both parts that are just not working. These have to do with swinging doors on showers and on location of toilets. The job of the people in plumbing and fixture stores is to sell things. And those items are normally the ones that they stock. I understand his point about having to make decisions and I was not there.
But when one size or shape of an item does not work, the first thing that occurs to me is to try another size or shape, not to change the location. We are still at the point where changes are possible, at least as far as fixtures that were not going to be available for 6-10 more weeks. It will take more tile with my new plan, and he will get a bigger shower. It is not all bad.
And yes, I am at that point where I am wondering why ever wanted to start this project in the first place.
Now, I am trying to figure out of this Le Tour de Fleece is the same as the other. In any case, a day later with a clear head, it still sounds like fun.
The american flag coloured socks are almost complete. If I don’t finish up the second toe tonight while listening to the last of a JD Robb cassette, it certainly will be completed first thing in the morning.
Next up will be the May SOM – Jacaranda from Chameleon Colorworks. The eldest put in her claim for this lovely lilac merino/tencil yarn.
By the time fall arrives, I want to have this cardigan knitted. As is common with popular projects, the Kauni Cardigan has a KAL.
My yarn is coming from Astrid’s Shop in the Netherlands. I have chosen EC and EM as my two colorways.
My exercises are a bit easier today, the kids walked and bathed the dog, and Lean Mean 13 was a real hoot.
