I just found the perfect thing to do with all the Noro Kureyon that’s been sitting in my stash. A log cabin blanket. I’ve been contemplating different things to do with it and this seems like the thing that I would get the most use out of it. I’d hate to knit another scarf I won’t wear (my neck is very sensitive and I couldn’t use Noro Kureyon for a scarf for myself), or a vest that I won’t wear because it’s too hot in my office, or anything else that wouldn’t really use up all of the yarn I have anyhow and wouldn’t use.
A blanket would be just the thing!
Now I just have to get all my things from storage. They’re holding quite a bit of my yarn hostage! Speaking of which…
This past week I signed a lease to rent a 3 bedroom house!! We move in on April 15th. Now, though, we’re having problems with the moving company and getting delivery of our things. The moving company we went through is now saying that they want to charge us for having our things delivered, when we shouldn’t be. I’ll find out more about that next week – they’re supposed to cover it! See… the Navy covered all the moving expenses, being this is our final move. Originally we were going to move to Dayton, OH. Well, things changed and we’re going to be in Florence, KY now. That is an hour from Dayton, OH. Not that far. By what the Navy pays for, since Nick is retiring, we can move anywhere in the United States and they will pick up the cost (so long as we aren’t over our weight limit, of course). The bottom line is that we are not supposed to be charged anything for this move. Well, somewhere someone along the way screwed some things up and our things shouldn’t have been shipped to Dayton, OH, they should have stayed in CT until we were ready for them. The people that are handling all the move stuff are more focused on why our things didn’t stay in CT then getting things fixed and set up to come to us in Florence! *sigh* Hopefully it will all be sorted out very soon.
I started my sweater today and I’m halfway done with the first sock of a pair of ankle socks that I started yesterday. Photos soon :o)
