October knitting with a little of this and that

Finally, a year after the big hail storm, the house is getting its make over. Hubby has been busily working hard to get a few things done before the siding goes up. We had the house built twenty years ago and there are just a few things we wished had been done differently.

The two car over sized garage is now a three car garage.
The new garage doors and driveway will be installed in a week or two.

There is now a door in one of the bedrooms instead of a window. In the spring there will also be the addition of a Juliet balcony as well.
The front door has been painted a new shade of red...
Some wiring has been added and rearranged making a much easier installation since the siding is down - who knew twenty years ago, I'd have a TV hanging from the wall?? 

We've been going up to the Griz games in between the renovating. There was a very exciting opening game and then some very sad, mediocre games. Saturday the Griz played in Portland. It was so poorly played hubby and I turned the TV off! Only one more home game this season but I'm not sure it will be worth going to see. We're playing our third string quarterback and to top it off Saturday night three players were thrown in jail, grrrrr!

All in all I've been keeping up the year of the socks, however. Four pair of socks ad a scarf completed this month with two other pairs started...
