We are in the "calm before the storm" phase of things. We're planning the move- but we aren't ready to actually do anything yet. And so, I'm just sort of frantically passing the time until I move back into my space and make it mine again. In my brain I'm planning where I'll put things and where things will go in their new spaces... and I can't do much else. (Sleep included...) Until then, sadly, this blog and my knitting progress will suffer. Brace yourself, September could be a little slow on blog posts- but not to worry, I have EVERY INTENTION of coming back once we're settled back in and I can pick up my needles without the "I really should unpack that box" guilt.
There has been progress these last couple of days. 2 more pink hats have appeared. (The easiest thing to concentrate on right now- hats!)
I can safely say I've used up all of the light pink yarn, but I think I can still get in ONE MORE hat with what remains, if I wait until I can get access to my white leftover yarn at home. So there will be one more hat, bringing this year's total up to 18 hats. Not too shabby. (I'm trying to think of what I'll do next year... and I have an idea... but that's another story for another day.)
I have also made progress on the mystery mitten- getting one off the needles (a sneak peek at the palm- because that's not what we're really all curious to see here) and casting #2 on.
I also, after many agonizing emails to my poor suffering MiL, chose a yarn for the argyle blanket. I was unable to find the color I wanted in a local shop in town (I went to 3!) and so I ordered Ultra Pima from Cascade from the Loopy Ewe and will begin that project just as soon as the yarn arrives. (And my house is in a reasonably finished state...) The leaves are starting to change colors and I find myself really inspired to knit blankets again. (This is my curse.)
Wish us luck on Thursday- I'm really ready to go home!
