One of the things about building from scratch is the multitude of tiny little details that crop up at every step. Little things like needing the exact location of the waste pipe in the back of the toilet today when you haven't even bought it yet. Things like not realising until after the plumbing is done that you can't have a wall hung vanity if your drain is going through the floor. Things like how close to the wall does the bath need to be in order for the water coming out of your fancy bath spout to go into the bath and not splash everywhere.
Anyway, all these little decisions are indicative of there being progress on the job, which is exciting. And I quite like the little decisions - some people find them stressful but I quite enjoy it.
In a classic Fortunately, Unfortunately situation - my son fell badly up at scout camp on Friday night and fractured his shin straight through. Nasty! We're seeing the doctor on Monday and I'm really hoping for a quick recover but everything I read on the internet about this kind of injury fills me with dread. Poor guy, he's got a cast from groin to toe, it's going to be a long summer for all of us.
I had a bit of time to finish a little knit while I was waiting endlessly in the hospital on the weekend (now there's a system that needs to be redesigned from first principles - talk about communication barriers, inefficiency and stupid demarcation).

Yarn: Noro Sekku Colour 6
I love the way it looks like an ancient flag left to fade in the sun and be whipped by the wind into raggedy shreds. Another great design by the wonderful Heidi Kirrmaier - I love all her work.
I don't love that it takes a tiny bit more than a skein of yarn to finish - very annoying to dip into a second expensive skein for about 5g of yarn.
Take care people.
