I finally finished my Mystic Lights shawl. It's upstairs blocking as I type. Unfortunately, I think my yarn, while it does very much resemble fire, is too busy for the pattern. I kept on trucking anyway. I'll try to get photos up soon. Now that that's off the needles, I can finish my second Anastasia sock (my first pair of toe-ups!) and also the topsecretproject of which I cannot disclose until mid-May.
We put in an offer on a house that we LOVE! The sucky part is that it's a short sale, which happens prior to the house going into foreclosure. The seller has a lawyer to help expedite the process, which could normally take more than a month!! Apparently this guy got greedy and bought up a bunch of properties. He has two mortgages on this house and obviously got in over his head. So ultimately it's not up to him to take the offer, but those banks he owes. Our realtor put in the contract that we'd like to hear back by May 2, TODAY, but that would be unlikely. So, she also put in a 20 day period. She called the other day to let us know she hadn't heard anything yet that if she didn't get any calls she would call the other realtor today to find out what's going on. Keep Your Fingers Crossed!!!
