Why Hello There!
Well, I am happy to say, we are 90% moved in to our new house. Well, ok, maybe 85%. I hate moving. You never know how much stuff you have until you have to move it. And honestly, I’m not a hoarder or anything, but I have a lot of stuff. Yarn, books, other knitting stuff, clothes, shoes, cooking things. AHHHAHAHAAHH!!!!!! Just thinking about it give me anxiety. I think I need those experts from the Hoarders show to help me. Ok, its not THAT bad, but it feels like it. I am getting there. One day at a time. And yes, there have been a lot of bags of trash and boxes to Goodwill in between. And a few more growing piles to donate.
I am sitting in my new office writing to you. I have commandeered a bedroom and I am happy. I have been sharing my office with guest room for the past 2 years and I am happy I have room all to myself dedicated to my creative pursuits.
While, it is obvious I have not written to you in a few weeks, I have been knitting. It has been a sweet escape from the craziness of getting this house together. I finished the Thyri Pullover by Hiliary Smith Callis, and this lovely Oklahoma February weather even let me wear it to work the other day. We have had show the past 2 days which has made a great excuse for me to sit and do nothing this weekend. The only thing I don’t like about this sweater is it makes my boobs look huge. Seriously, my boobs aren’t that big.
My new project is the Feathernest Raglan by Amy Miller, also featured in the Winter 2014 edition of Interweave Knits. It was a little confusing at first with the pattern and the increases around the neck but I figured it out. I am almost done with the body. The pattern is getting easier and I am able to watch my favorite shows while knitting. I.e. Downton Abbey, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, the season finale of How to Get Away with Murder and a little binge watching of Season 3 of House of Cards. Yes, that has been my life and my escape. Good tv and knitting. But really, as long as I have my knitting, I don’t care what is on TV. Oh, I am knitting this sweater in the same yarn I used for the Thyri, I had plenty! Shelridge Farm Soft Touch DKW in the Cardinal color way.
Well, I am looking out my office window at the snow melting off the roofs. As much as love seasons and winter and the ability to wear all my hand knits. I really can’t wait for spring. I am over this cold weather.
Well, I will talk to you all soon. I promise.
