Still here, still packing, still knitting. But one of these days I'm going to have to unplug the old HP Pavilion and put it in a box, too. Meanwhile, at the office, I'm almost to busy to remember to check my Yahoo and Gmail accounts ~ so no quick lunchtime blog posts either. Them's the breaks. We'll move a week from tomorrrow, we'll settle in to the other place, and I'll enjoy creating a new home. I'll be glad to see my TV & DVD player, although I don't expect to reconnect the stereo right away, as I may have some cabinetry built. Thank God (and Brotherman) for the iPod and his loan of a portable DVD player with which I've gotten my Six Feet Under fix, and Caroline, her Wiggles. And the stash! I'll get to unpack the stash maybe by Labor Day, and I hope to be so pleased that I knit from it for a good while. I did let a skein of Noro Daria distract me when we went to NC last weekend, and started a little seed-stitch belt for my carrying-around knitting:
And my other [Summer of Lace] project has been the Violets by the River shawl, on which I have finished the violets and moved on to the river. I wish I'd photographed it before picking up the river-border stitches, but if you want to get a hint of what it looks like, click here. I've promised it to my mother, but she may not want it if it blocks out on the small size, funnily enough, given her initial complaints about her gargantuan Christmas alpaca ~ which she now adores!
