You have to see this...it`s very well done.
(I can crochet too, btw...it`s just that I prefer knitting.)
As to the building work? It is going okay. The mess and chaos is incredible and will carry on being so to the end of next week, but the windows they have finished so far look great. And the difference in the attic is incredible...it`s gone from being a stuffy, enclosed storage space to a light-filled room. Even though we can`t call officially a room (fire regulations, ceiling height, no permenant stair) it`s still a huge (45 feet x 15 feet, with sloping ceiling) space. And it has added significant value to this house...there`s not many places around here that can boast an attic like that.
