My Pal Rocks!

Well we got everything moved over to the new house. That’s a start right?? We still have a long way to go before we are moved in though…a long way. I took yesterday off to try and get unpacked and I only got the kitchen done. At least now we can eat. It was so nice to finally spend a night in our new home. It seems sort of like a weight has been lifted off of us. Now we have accomplished something that we have been wanting for so long.

While we were trying to finish up the painting on Saturday I got my first piece of mail at the new house. I got a package from my Pal and she is the best pal ever!! That so did not help with trying to finish the painting. She so spoiled me.


I got some awesome Tofutsies yarn, 2 Knit Picks circular needles, “Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles” (perfect!), a beautiful washcloth, some yummy dark chocolate (that I had to eat right away), and a cool notebook. I don’t know how, but she just knew what to get me. Maybe it had to do with my questionnaire, maybe not. How did she know that I almost bought that exact yarn last week but decided last minute to put it back?? Maybe she spying on me…from Indiana… Thanks Pal!!! You’re the best!

I was able to fit in knitting time here and there. I definitely used all my time off yesterday for unpacking though. (yeah right…) I have realized that the hubby now pays attention to my knitting. When he got home yesterday he commented on how far I got on the sock, when I was supposed to be unpacking all day. Busted! I really didn’t think he ever looked. I am almost halfway done with the first Horcrux Sock. It is looking lovely!


I will have to knit these again soon. I love this pattern. I think that whenever I need a quick FO to bring up my spirits this will be it. Hopefully I will have this sock done in the next day or two and I will be casting on for the second right away. I have not decided if these will be a gift or if I will keep them.

Well I should get back to work now, We have a ton to do!

Congrats on getting into the new house. I just moved so I totally understand about the unpacking. Took us a while. :)

The horcrux sock looks great. I'm planning to knit it up sometime soon too.

Happy knitting and unpacking!!!

Wahoo, glad to hear the moving part is done. I'm ashamed to say we have been in our house for a couple of months and there are no pictures on the wall and yes we still have stuff in boxes. Hopefully you will be more successful at unpacking then I've been :).

That's a nice package of you got there and the Horcrux is looking awesome.
