Long Time No Knit


Can it really be that my last post was from March? Nope, I didn’t drop off the face of the earth, nor did I decide to stop knitting–I moved! In mid-March, B and I received notice that our rental was being sold, so we needed to vacate. The past two months have been at times frustrating, exhausting, overwhelming, expensive, and life changing. Did I mention they’ve also been wonderful? Because…

…we’re in our very own house! Yes, we bought a house and moved at the beginning of the month, and that’s why I haven’t been knitting. In fact, if anyone had suggested I knit something during early spring, I would have probably burst into tears, that’s how hard things were. But now…

…we’re in our very own house!

Oh, I mentioned that already, did I? My knitting is still safely packed away in a rather large box (I fit it into one!) in the garage, just waiting for a place to call home. I’ve scouted out a potential location to set up my very own knitting corner in our house, but I’m waiting for a good chair/sofa, yet unpurchased. I also have a great spot in a closet for all my stash and doo-dads that need storing.

But in the meantime, I need to finish unpacking, paint a room, plant a garden, continue to work, buy a chair/sofa, and sometimes even sleep.

I haven’t yet taken a picture of a great antique store find–it’s a wooden sewing stand with a handle on top. It’s really cool and will hold my WIPs. I also know after I get going again, I’d like to consider a few projects for the summer: one of these goofy looking fly masks, good for riding my horse during pesky fly season; there’s a super cool messenger bag made out of twine/string I spotted while browsing knitting books at Barnes & Noble, it’s in Erika Knight’s Classic Knits: 15 Timeless Designs to Knit and Keep Forever; and I’m also interested in socks–whether I need to purchase a loom or needles (yikes! I said needles! didn’t mean it, really!), I’m not 100% certain yet.

Someday soon I know I’ll be knitting again. Wish me luck with unpacking and finding that perfect knitting nook!

  1. Welcome back and congratulations on surviving the house buying and move!

    How are the furkids adapting to the new home?

  2. It took them all of 24 hours to settle in and start some serious playing. I think it’s unanimous–they all love the house.
