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!
