Karen’s Quirky Quiz

Karen over at Nothing But Knit posted a quiz. I love it when she posts quizzes, so I thought I would join in. If you are a blogger, join us in sharing your quirkiness.

Do you have any quirky decorative pieces that you just love? I really like quirky decorative pieces. Two of my favorites are my yellow submarine cookie jar and an antique pulley.

Do you have quirky food habits? What is the quirkiest?

I do not like vegetables that look like trees.

Everyone has a favorite shirt. Do you have a favorite quirky piece of clothing? Maybe it’s super comfortable. Maybe it’s your favorite color.

I love my Saturday Night Knitting Club shirt. I can’t wait for my washing machine to be fixed so I can wash it again. The plumber is here now, so hopefully some of the six plumbing issues we’ve found will be fixed today.

We all love to craft. Do you have quirkiness involved with your crafting?

I set arbitrary rules around my crafting. I think it is because I need the structure that work used to give me, but I really hate the work part of work.

Sock It To Me Monday

For my August cast on I decided to skip what I planned to knit and start a pair of vanilla socks instead. My brain can only handle vanilla socks at the moment. I’m knitting Knit Spin Farm socks and I am head over heels in love with this base. I’ll be stalking her updates from now on and hope to get a lot more of her yarn.

What is your go to mindless knit?

We Moved

I backed this truck up alone. It is a big truck. There is no rearview mirror. I’m awesome.

We moved on Monday. It has been a week of unpacking and trying to decide where things go. It has been a week of no relaxing. I have been able to knit a bit while I have my coffee in the morning, which has been nice. We’ve quickly adapted to having three times the space of our old house. I have not adapted to being able to sleep in the new house. I’m confounded that our new house can be so full of stuff when it all fit in our last house.

I’m hoping things will calm down a bit over the weekend and I’ll be back to knitting and blogging regularly. It’s about time I finish my Arachne, right?

Busy Week

Moving is a lot of work. There is a reason I haven’t done this in 15 years. I put a schedule on our refrigerator because John and I keep getting confused about dates and when things need to be done.

After next Wednesday we should own only one house. I’ll be busy unpacking for weeks, but I’ll be back in Blogville actively when the brunt of the move is done. I hope you are doing well and look forward to catching up soon.

Arachne Update

It’s amazing how much progress you make on your WIPs when you pack your stash. I’m slowly plugging away on my Arachne. I love this sweater. I love the yarn. I’m sick of knitting it, which means it is the last WIP I pick up, thereby making it the knit that sees the least amount of progress. This sweater will be done by October. I promise.
