Disappointment and Ecstatic Excitement!!! | Celtic Cast On

Holy crap WHERE DO I START??????

Well lets start with…..

The Disappointment: The house we were all set to buy failed the water test miserably so we have decided to go no further with it. We now have on month to find a place to live

The Estatic Excitement : Upon finding out that the house was a no go, Moose hopped back on MLS to see if there was anything new on the market that we hadn’t yet looked at. Welllllllllllll there just so happened to be a house with 30 acres in the area we had orginally been looking for land in. The pictures didn’t really do it for us but we thought hey 30 acres of land is a nice little chunkie we may as well go have a look. I got home from work and off we went straight away to see it.  It’s set in a pretty secluded area *obviously when its on 30 acres huh*, back off the road, fantastic view of the valley, its 1000 ft elevation up there, its just altogether EXACTLY what we were looking for. The house was surprisingly VERY nice inside compared to what the pictures show. We of course will want to make it ours and put our own touches to it but right now its perfect to move into. Soooo before we left our agent we had put an offer in. It was weird cause we both walked in and BOTH said WOW I love it! We got walking around and I swear I could have moved in right then and there, all my ties to the house we just sold had been cut instantly, I’M IN LOVE!!!! I don’t want to get my hopes up just in case but HECK MY HOPES ARE ALREADY UP!!! I couldn’t even sit down to read blogs last night OR knit I was too wound up! Prayers and finger crossing and whatever else you do would REALLY be appreciated on this one, I don’t even want to think what i’ll be like if we don’t get it.

I’m sure you were wondering how Heidi got along with all that sock yarn huh!


Here she is with her favourite of the bunch, and if it wasn’t MY favourite too I probably would have given it to her but I LOVE THAT YARN! I’m waiting for a special pattern to pop up to knit it into. Although Heidi and I have only had three knitting dates so far, it is VERY safe to say that we like the EXACT same things lol Very weird but I think its good. We buy the same patterns and then find out after the fact that we both have then, we both love tweedy green yarn, and green yarn in general hahah I have no problems knitting the same patterns and picking the same yarns that just means we both have seriously good taste We joked about having to call each other before church to make sure we are not wearing the same thing. You can see in the picture Heidi’s first sweater, its the cabled cardi from Knit 1 spring mag 2007, when she told me she found a pattern for her first sweater I laughed and said I bought that mag for the same pattern! GO FIGURE!

Our summer time visitors are back:


I love these little guys soooo much, even though they do tear apart our garbage and leave it all over the deck. Sock seems to not mind them, she’ll sit and watch them, then paw at the window as if she wants to go out and play with them. I think really she is saying *Geez, you guys sure do look like me but from the looks of those black circles around your eyes, I think you need to get more sleep* I hope the new owners are nice to the little guys!


As you can all see, Sock has no problems catching up on her sleep. She’s found a nice mix of wool and alpaca to bed down on while I try to find out what the heck I did with my spray bottle so I can block that sucker!

I have been working on a secret knitting project, I’m about half way through and I’m loving every minute. Maybe you’ll get a sneak peak next post. I’m off to bouce around the house, hopefully I’ll hear something before I go to work!
