So I may have scheduled too many things for this month. We closed on our new house last Friday, moved in on Sunday and then left for Mexico on Thursday. Yikes! In the rush to get us moved over to the new place, we may have forgotten some things. On Wednesday, I went back to the house to drop off my keys to the new owners (who we had been renting from for the last month) and to take out the garbage. Remember this blog post about the clues that a knitter lives in a house? See that photo there of the knitting needle organizer hanging behind the door? yeah…I may have left that! Thank goodness that I went back to double check. I must have hundreds of dollars in knitting needles in it. Not to mention, packing for Mexico would probably have been harder without all of my needles!
So for the trip, I wanted to take some old projects that I haven’t finished and some new ones to work on. But alas, space was tight. I decided to skip the sweater projects and focus on small items that I don’t mind getting sun screen on. I packed an old sock that still needs a friend – knitted in Schaefer Nichole (available at the shop). I grabbed another hank of sock yarn from my stash (something variegated that would be best for simple ribbing). I also packed up a lot of scrap yarns and the Albers Cowl pattern (seen here). Every since Ann Weaver visited this spring, I have wanted to make it. I have such an extensive collection of sock yarn scraps that I was able to pull together some pretty cool color combos. I hope to send some photos to the blog while I am gone!
