We Got It!

The wait is over, and it was worth it! There were two bids for our house, and the seller came back to us with a counter offer. We took it! We're hoping to close at the end of the month and move by mid-June. I'm shaking with excitement about this.

Here are some pictures for you. First, a view of the house from the backyard:


The kitchen:


The living room; check those hardwood floors:


Believe it or not, we only looked inside one house before deciding to make an offer. I'd seen homes on line in our local paper and realtor web sites. We drove by two of them and liked this one the best. One look inside told us this was the house for us.

Since this is a knitting blog, here is some knitting content! This is a photo of the little Companion Bag that husband made. I spun the yarn; he knitted and felted the bag. It's about half as tall as a can of soda.

Judy, The separate 20ft x 30ft wired and plumbed workshop (not shown in the photos)will become the weaving, spinning, and fiber prep studio. The house has a gazillion closets and Donna has already staked out a large one in the downstairs family room for the yarn stash and knitting supplies. This house is a dream come true for two fiberholics like us!
