We LOVE watching the Olympics around here and the winter games are my favorite! It’s also great knitting time. This afternoon I worked on my 2nd square for Jay – I had to go up to a size 8 needle (from a 7) to get the right size block but I’m hoping I can block the first one into the correct size..
The purple one was finished while they were still here installing … 5+ hours today when they should have been done by Thursday at the latest. I wish I could say they were done but there were 3 damaged screens and they ordered the wrong doors for the back – they were able to install the doors and when the correct insert comes in, they can just remove the glass section and replace it with the correct one. ( That’s the front door you can see behind it and that one was correct)
It should have the individual panes like the old one.
I’m so disgusted with this sales rep – he tried to say that the “rain” glass didn’t come in the individual panes but we specifically told he we wanted the same style doors as we had and he showed us a door with the rain glass and the smaller panes. I have a bad feeling that he showed us non impact glass … again, his mistake … and then we’ll have to make a decision about whether to go ahead and switch them out and have to use a Kevlar type fabric over them if a hurricane threatens or keep the ones they installed. At this point, I’d definitely choose the smaller panes and hanging the Kevlar if needed. I just don’t like the look of the single pane of glass. I guess we’ll find out Monday.
This evening after they finally left, we had happy hour on the porch … happy to have them gone after a week and then I knit this evening while watching the Olympics … this is square #3. I guess my blanket is going to wait a while but there’s no deadline on that while there is one these squares.
