Heel turned! I made it! I also got the stitches picked up! Now for the home stretch!
Ahh, Progress. Yes we now have 3 bins down there, and one at the other end of the yard that are done! 4 down - 20 to go! And the weather has been beautiful... mind you today at home it is snowing... go figure!
Hopper Cones before we put the legs on, how they come from factory, stacked on top of their skids. 3 in each stack.. there is 2 stacks not in this pick (12 cones to build yet).
We had a tight and sticky situation the one day. See how this hopper bin is behind the tractor and crane? There isn't much room to move back! And see the Semi truck parked behind? I don't know which of the 2 was asked not to park there, or if they both were.. but he isn't supposed to be there, but he is out of the way.....
See this guy? We couldn't move the tractor.... Bin behind, semi in front. He did however come and move it quite promptly after the phone call to the company was made..... (we were planning on building a roof and a bin that day but were moving a little slow.... only got a roof done, so did not end up needing the tractor, but it was the principle of it.). He must be a hell of a driver to get the truck backed in that good though! Will give him credit there.
Bin sheets for roofs. You can see the bin packages there too(the sheets are hump up on the left, there is a pallet of doors on the right for flat bottom bins and in the middle in front of the trailers is a pallet with a door and old style tube ladders.)
Better Pic of the packages, you can see the top of the roof packages there too on the left of the pic.
Then we stand the sheets up and make rings like this one. I showed you this pic before but I figure now you can see... they come in the bundle above, hubby flips them, we pull out the roof ring ( 6 sheets you see standing bellow to make the roof) and bolt them in their ring. Then we put an angle on the top of the ring so we can bolt the roof sheets to the ring. And then the roof sheets get carried around the ring like pictured below. We then put up 4 sheets to hold the peak ring up...(will try to get you pics of that yet) and then we put up the roof sheets and finish the roof. This snow had all melted while we were there.. and we trenched the water out. Mind you after the last couple days... might be a bit more snow/water around. I hope our trenching still works, and drains the water out!
Rockets. This is 6ft, rocket type air. This is how it comes from the company. We have to put legs and ducts on and put them in cones.... I hope to get you some pics of that too.... :) Just in case you wanna see it! LOL
Well, I have dishes in the sink and should run off and do them.... ttyl

I was so sick I couldn't knit. Yes, others with the same couldn't smoke, Hubby couldn't drink Pepsi.. and for those of you who know him that's big. So, anyways. After our week home resting I felt like doing something so I picked up the yarn that I was making another Market bag with. So I crocheted another Market bag. What do you think of it? I think it is kinda pretty. Not what I first thought I was going to create. As I was planning multi colour madness for stripes, but my colours didn't want to work together and they didn't seem to have the same thickness to them. But the blues I used did, as well as the white. I like how the thicker Red Heart yarn made the bag less open(as opposed to the last one I did with the sears/zeller's yarns, which seems a little more open but not terribly so).
So that is what I could bear to work on. I did look through magazines and bum out too... I got a new book through Etsy! Family Circle Easy Knits for Kids. It is a fun little book. I hope to put some of the patterns to good use one of these days..... Just have to get certain other things out of the way first! LOL I do hope the market bags go over well and that the intended recipients like them, and use them. I do suppose even if they figure they are too hideous for public and put dirty laundry in them they are still being used... and that's what matters! I am still working on those socks, the 2 at a timer's yes... they are still going.. just slow. Between work and what not you know... LOL
Ah well, I think I have rambled on long enough...... maybe... LOL and will catch you later....
