Out of sorts

Ok, since the beginning of this year I have had alot on my mind…ALOT!!! Even more than just knitting. And I think I’m starting to get a handle on it. I have decided that when my lease is up at the end of this month that I will be moving to my mothers. This will put me in a place where I can financially get back on my feet and in a year or so be able to get a house. And be able to go on my first actual vacation with my girls and afford many, many other things. Did I mention that I love my mom? She’s the greatest!

So, with this being said…it has upset a few people. But my girls come first and they will just have to deal with it. As for my girls??? They are overjoyed that we are staying at grandma’s. But what this means now is that I have to move furniture from 2 different locations into one. And find a home for my African Gray Congo (bird). Just because my mom is insistent that I down size from 2 birds to 1. So Miss Gypsy will have to go.

Now if you remember, I have shared a large half double with Miss Tonia for 2 years and she is also moving. She is moving less then 3 minutes from where our current place is and I’m moving about 5 minutes away from it. So needless to say, we won’t be that far from each other still. Yay, that means she can still help me when I need stuff done to my hair and I will always be there to help her. She’s my knitting buddy. We could sit in the living room and just knit for hours, it was great! Looking back over the past 2 years, it has been great. All the funny memories and if someone were actually recording our lives they would have some awesome out takes. The kids in the house were just down right hilarious most of the time. They always made us laugh. Kids are great!

Ok, as for actual knitting content…I have been working on an Irish Hiking Scarf. I am using Lorna’s Laces shepherd worsted weight in the colorway “watercolors”. I want it super long so it can be doubled over and I am on my third and final skein. And I have a few other things on the needles. I have taught myself the sock on 2 circs method and now want to learn the toe up method on 2 circs. I’ve never done a toe up sock and want to learn soon. That way I get the most out of a ball of yarn. I don’t like having that little ball left over. You can only imagine how many of those things I have running around in my stash.

Okay, back to work for me. C-ya, Dreem
