It's been a busy week, again, and today I find myself in my last day of work here in Virginia. This week I've bought a house, sold a house, and worked on cleaning both of them. I've carted a carload of things to the new house already. I've stood in four DMV lines (and survived!). I've had last dinners and lunches with friends. The moving truck comes on Monday, and though I've still got lots of packing I want to finish before they get here (gotta keep the yarn organized you know?) I think I'll be ready when they do arrive. Would it sound too cliched for me to say that tomorrow will be the first day of the rest of my life? 'Cause that's how I feel about it.
Thanks for all the input on my next knitting project. It's like you all could read my mind! Before I had even read any of the comments, I had already started the orange Milano tank... with plans to start the other one once I get settled into my new home. As you can see, the tank has been a pretty quick knit and I'm nearly done with the back. It's been a mindless sort of thing to work on, which is the perfect project for these hectic times!
Last weekend I took a little time off from packing to go climbing again, this time down at Linville Gorge in NC. I had been there once before, but the mountain was socked into a cloud and there was no view to be seen. It probably made it easier for me since I had no way of knowing how high off the ground I was! Last weekend it was totally different with blue skies all around, and we had a good day of climbing. Inspired by my discovery of the Extreme Knitting Challenge that Teri is hosting, I tucked a sock in progress into my fanny pack and took a little knit break on one of the pitches to collect my thoughts!
