The "big" move

It's not really a big move, either in distance or in quantity of stuff that's going with me. After all, we have a furnished apartment, so most of the big stuff is staying in the house until it sells. We just fit one load into Stephen's car for him to take back tonight, and I'll pack the Jeep to the gills tomorrow or Tuesday, and then there will just be a few things left to come get, I think.

Of course, we still did most of those usual pre-move things...the purging of old stuff, the sorting and boxing, the cleaning. The house is officially on the market now, and there will probably be an agent's open house on Wednesday, so it needs to be left in good shape! Plus there was the insane amount of time spent on transferring all our telecom services to the new place. Stephen and I have collectively spent at least 6 hours on the phone dealing with that...and I'm not confident that it will be done right, despite all that.

Needless to say, this hasn't left much room for fiber arts! I did finish a sock this week, but I had dreamed of finishing the whole pair by Thursday and that's not looking likely now! However, at the beginning of break I took photos of a few fibery projects, so I can share those here now.

Plain-weave scarf from handspun. The warp is Spunky Eclectic BFL in "Thermograph" and the weft is Spunky Corriepaca in "Tahiti." There are some decorative floats every few inches, this photo has a close-up of one:

In-progress shot of a honeycomb scarf. Green sock yarn for warp, the weft is mostly Spunky Lame Duck Mallard with some KnitPicks Wool of the Andes as the contrast. This is finished now, but the camera is already packed up, and the scarf needs to be ironed, I think--wet finishing left it a bit raggedy.

Currently on my wheel: Spunky merino/bamboo in Sangria. Finished the first bobbin ages ago, and the wheel has been sitting idle since...umm, I don't want to think about how long. Maybe I'll take it out for an hour of relaxing tonight to prepare for the madness of tomorrow!

OK, next post may not be for a while...immediately after the move I'll go see my mother for a week, and then will begin putting together this new life! Wish me luck.


Your weaving AND spinning is out of this world! I should have had you give me lessons before you left all of us for good! I know, I know - you won't be that far. Here's to a smooth move. Cheers!

Hope the move goes well. <3

Also, both weaving and spinning is gorgeous. Love that stripey pinkorange scarf.
