Yesterday everything was set in place. We have a move date set for when they’ll come pack all our things and ship them to Ohio (December 12th and 13th). I have put my notice in at work and Tuesday, December 5th is my last day and yesterday was Nick’s last day.
I’m mixed to say the least. Sad to leave a good job and nice people (not to mention friends in the area), but happy for a new start with the man I love.
The plan goes pretty much like this: Tuesday, December 5th is my last day at work, then it’s down to business. We have things to move from storage to here so it gets repacked properly because everything that is left in storage is “pick up only” and there’s a bit of stuff that isn’t boxed anymore. The time between my last day and the 12th will be used to do this. The 12th they’ll come and start packing and the 13th they’ll finish and load everything onto a truck. The 15th is our housing check out. After check out we’ll head to Endicott, NY for a few days, then it’s off to Dayton, OH and a quick visit with my family. From there it’s down to Florida for at least three weeks and we’ll be settling in Ohio mid-January. A lot of change, but also enough down time, I think. Hopefully bills won’t pile up too much before we get settled and get jobs out there.
As for knitting, Rogue only has half a sleeve left to be completed, then sewing them on, weaving in ends, and blocking. The Shetland Triangle is on it’s second ball of yarn. I’m working on socks for a friend for her birthday. Not much else going on with knitting, but I’ve been keeping myself plenty busy with the move.
Hope everyone is well.
I’m a thirty-something who lives in Cincinnati, OH.
Crafting, for me, started young - I can’t even recall a time I wasn’t crafty in some way. My first foray into yarn was doing plastic canvas embroidery and making Barbie doll furniture. Not long after that I learned to crochet from a book my grandmother gave me after asking to learn what she was doing (she crochets, afghans mostly these days). After that, I took up counted cross stitch and then came sewing when I took two fashion design classes in high school. My mom had a sewing machine from my great grandmother and I taught myself to sew from patterns on it. I still use this same sewing machine today!
I started knitting in 2004 when a co-worker was pregnant with her first child and I wanted to make something for her. I bought a “learn to knit kit” from Lion Brand for a baby hat and booties set. I did make the baby hat and booties (with very few problems) and ended up gifting them to the co-worker. I wanted to make a blanket, but I wasn’t quite able to get that done in time since it took a lot longer then I’d imagined! It wasn’t until the end of 2004/early 2005 that knitting really took a hold of me. Now I love knitting and almost always have a project with me, even if it’s just something small when I’m out and about. I like a wide range of projects depending on my mood. Sometimes I like a good challenge knit and other times I enjoy a lot of stockinette or garter stitch. I love Ravelry for keeping track of my projects and for finding new things to knit - I feel like I’m always spending time on there! It’s also a great place for getting to know other knitters, crocheters, and various fiber enthusiasts.
In the fall of 2008, I purchased a spinning wheel from someone on Craigslist. It’s a Babe Fiber Starter, single treadle wheel and after a bit of trouble getting used to it, I’ve managed to spin up some fiber. In January of 2012, I found someone local that was selling their Lendrum DT and it came to live with me! The Babe now lives with Jen (aka piddleloop) and she’s learning to spin. I’m still trying to find time to spin along with knitting, crocheting (occasionally), and whatever else is going on, but I work it in here and there.
I’m sure there’s something I might have left out here, so if there’s anything else you want to know about me, just ask :o)
