I'm Back

Thanks to everyone for your encouragement yesterday, about knitting, blogging, and home maintenance. You all wrote some very kind things. I didn't intend for the post to be an expression of insecurity about my blogging or my comment numbers or anything like that, and I'm sorry for that confusion. I'm not sorry, however, that the post caused a few of you to delurk.

Nope, I was only trying to express some frustration about my bathroom ceiling and why I had no knitting progress to share. The ceiling fix took almost no time, including the application of the stain blocker, and it remains spot free. Let's hope that (as I suspect) this was the result of something overflowing, and not a steady leak.

Now, Suzeq tells me that knitting can't solve that problem. Ha! I beg to differ. I suppose that if all else failed I could just knit myself a ceiling cover and tack it to the ceiling. Out of sight, out of mind ;-). That is until the ceiling falls on my head....

Anyway, I hope that things will not come to that, and since this isn't a life blog, let's get back to the knitting.

I worked back and respaced my cables. The knitting should be smooth going from here.

 

I didn't comment yesterday although I am pretty much a lurker. But your comment about the ceiling falling down on you reminded me of a similar thing that happened to me. I was living in one of my first apartments in the Boston area and occasionally I'd get some drips-occasionally more than drips-from the apartment above me (into my bathroom, so I assume it was their bathroom as well). One day the ceiling tile finally gave way-what a mess!

Anyway, love the cardigan, I can just imagine how beautiful that yarn must look and feel in person.

so, which respacing did you choose? :)

Can't wait to see those cables! Have a nice, dry ;-) weekend.

Yay knitting! and i ALMOST had a ceiling fall down. My second year dorm apartments at UCSD were decrepit to say the least (they were renovated the summer immediately following when I moved out...what's that say)I took a shower and then came down into the kitchen for breakfast and wondered who was so bad at doing dishes that they covered the entire floor with water. I soon realized that was not the cause (still dishes in the sink) when I noticed water running down the wall and window. Maintenence came and the guy poked a screwdriver into the ceiling and his whole hand went in! AH! no total collapse tho. so i feel you on the bathroom sitch!

The only time a ceiling fell in on me was at a restaurant where I worked. It was a scant 4 hours before the expected arrival of the franchise inspectors. At least it didn't land on my knitting!

Home maintenance bites. Takes away from knitting time.

Hehe..you're right, maybe knitting is the solution..plus knit fast enough on a big enough project and you'd have a padding to hide under if the ceiling fell in!

Since everyone else chimed in I have to say the ceiling falling in on people must be very common cause It has happened to me as well, while I was laying flat on my back from a slick spot from the leaking ceiling, and as I looked up WHOSH! down came the rain and the ceiling. Disgusting!!! Your sweater has inspired me to work on my cabled to hell sweater. Love the chat thread!!!

eurgh! Sorry to hear the ceiling woes. Looking forward to seeing the cable action.

Who knew ceilings could be so dangerous? I've got two leaks, one in the living room and one in the kitchen. Occasionally they spit small bits of plaster, but I'm still waiting for the Day of Doom. Oh, and I knit on subways too.

Well, I hate to burst your ceiling cover bubble idea, but I think that would be too heavy. I'd opt for a judicious use of granny squares as ceiling tiles... :)Martha Strewart - don't you steal my idea!
