WhirlwindHopefully, this time next week S and I will be snuggled up with all the fuzzles (and doubtless many MANY cardboard boxes) in our new home. We've spent the last few weekends trying to get everything ready - painting, changing outlets, cleaning and putting in shelf-liners (THANKS, MOM!), raking the leftover leaves, addding another foot or so of insulation in the attic... but I think it's as ready as it's going to be. If all goes as planned, the next time we open the door of our new place will be with the movers!
So between all of the new-house activities and the fact that I've been spending every spare moment reading escapist novels (Steph - you know what you've done!), I haven't been making too much knitting progress. I'm pretty much just working on the Union Square Market Pullover - I've finished two sleeves and the back, and am biting my nails that I'll have enough yarn to finish the front. I have more yarn - but it's undyed... I guess the worst case scenario is that I run out, dye some more, and re-knit the front to hide the new skein(s).
Adding to the stress is the news on the health front - S' brother continues to progress, but it's been very difficult for everyone to be patient as we all wait to see whether he'll continue to improve. I guess with brain injuries it can be very difficult to gauge what damage is temporary and what is permanent, so it's hard to know what the future holds.
On a lighter note, even though my schedule currently makes Late Night almost impossible, I'm going to make an effort to be more proactive about meeting my knitting people at Knit Happens periodically - or having them over to the new digs! I'm kicking it off with a lunch date on the 26th... hopefully I can re-connect with the knitters, even without making it on Wednesday nights!
