A view of the kitchen from the other side this time. Units are starting to be put into place. We might even have an oven by the end of the week! No Monkee Maker, no stainless steel for me - far too clinical. Our house is over 200 years old, I really didn't want to go all modern in there. Mind you, the oven is going to be pretty modern and I don't think they had microwaves 200 years ago, nor fridges or spot lights, but I have to relinquish myself to the 21st century at some time!

No raffle prize today, but the winner from yesterday is Teri Gaudet. Just as soon as I can get to a post office, I'll put your silk in an envelope Teri. You lucky lucky person!

The blanket is coming along slowly because stupid me decided to do an i-cord border. I like doing i-cord and thought it would be a good idea at the time. Ah well, at least it will look good!

Hya. Honestly, my kitchen looked like that a few years ago and it is amazing how well it will look and work when it is finished. What is 'i-cord'? I have just bid on some 3.75mm double pointed needles on ebay as I fancied knitting the cupcakes I saw on http://ax174.blogspot.com/2006/02/my-own-pattern-iv-cupcake.html

Especially as I saw these:

How many more squares do you need? Mx

That didn't come out very well: http://littlecottonrabbits.typepad.co.uk/

I think that's better.

Oh wow, your kitchen is really coming on a pace! So I was wrong on the styling, but I'll bet there have been a few Gordon Ramseyisms going on during the works :)

Is it finished yet? Have you made any cakes yet??
