The kids are spending a lot of time with their grandparents as we pack. They think this is the best week ever.
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.
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.
The shawl has grown a little bit. I expect it to grow faster now that my home is without sock yarn. I intend to knit this until I run out of yarn. It is very cozy yan in colors that I adore, so I hope it gets lots of use.
I missed the 15th for my worsted Northeasterly progress, but I’m less than a week behind so I decided to fill you in. This blanket, like socks, is really good for stress knitting. It is slow going, but at the end of it I’m going to have a very cozy blanket to cuddle up with beside the fire at our new house.
I finished another pair of Christmas socks. This pair is knit with West Yorkshire Spinners. The contrasting red was sent to me by the fabulous Bonny after I commented on how much I liked the contrasting cuffs, heels, and toes on her matching socks.
I will not be making a new pair of socks this week. We close on our new house in two weeks, and close on our current house two days after that. I’ll be busy until then. I’ve packed my stash (including sending the good stuff home with Jess to be watched over. I didn’t trust myself to stay out of it). The only knitting I have to work on is my WIPs. Lucky for me that is 3 sweaters, 2 blankets, and a shawl.
