Ta-Da! Tuesday #10 and Big/Busy/Scary News

Whew! the last week has been ridiculously busy.  There's no other way to describe it.  I feel like I've been running ever since I got home from SEMKR.  This past weekend, SuperWife and I cleaned like devils because we were having our Thanksgiving on Saturday (it was wonderful), because we are moving to Memphis around December 16th and our property manager was coming by on Sat. to inspect the house (he arrived, as property managers do, at the exact time we were scheduled to sit down and eat), and because we had to clean before we could start making piles of stuff that we refuse to move 900 miles (whether to throw away, donate, or sell).

I can already tell this whole moving thing is going to suck the life out of my knitting for the next month. :-( but there's not much that I can do about that.  SuperWife was offered a job at the Naval Air Station in Millington, TN and it's only 5 hours away from our home and families as opposed to the 22-24 hour drive we have from Virginia Beach.  It's the right thing to do, but it couldn't possibly come at a more stressful time.

So, my life is all boxes boxes boxes!  But back to the yarn -- does anyone have any suggestion for how to pack my stash so as to not invite any kind of bug into it?  I'm assuming I have to put everything in 2Gallon ziploc bags and then pack them in boxes...  Any better ideas out there?

My Ta-Da! today is small but beautiful.  I really love how this turned out:

It's a washcloth in a Lily Sugar and Creme Cotton in Denim...

If anyone knows any really great LYSs in the Memphis area, please share them!

Happy Knitting Everyone!

  1. i didn't pack my stash in anything real special. gallon storage bins. it sat in storage for 3 months and i had 0 problems with bugs.

  2. I'm sure you'll find Yarniverse in Memphis! I've never been but my business partner (did I tell you I used to own a yarn shop??) went there several times when she was visiting family--and loved it. Lucky you@!!!!
    My daughter and her family are in the throws of a move--just across town, but you know, once you have to pack everything, it doesn't matter if it's across town or across country. Bummer. At least we're here to help (cheer lead!)
