The porch is now more than half sided; we were able to get all but a small section on the bottom wall done this weekend. The peak is next.
I whacked my thumb pretty good (three times), but the siding is going up faster than we expected, even without a pneumatic nail gun.
For human protection from the weather, I’ve got a new hat on the needles (surprise!) – this is “Botanic“, and it’s knit inside out. Well, inside out if you want the slipped stitches on the outside (which I do). The pattern says it’s reversible, but the other side is just skinny stripes and not as striking as the slip-stitch side.
