Ta-Da! #12.... on hold.

Hey All,

Well, I'm officially on hold.  As in my life, projects, and all my things are in a state of suspension around the house.  We've almost completely packed the non-essentials and are down to the truly essential pieces now.  With 8 days to go until we load the truck.  We're down to the single digits and isn't that scary?

My poor blanket, was put on hold as it was packed with the rest of my stash:

Ah, well, it'll re-surface, hopefully in the near future and not much later as an UFO (un-finished object), as Woolythyme refers to them...

In the mean time, since I can't be without anything to work on, and even though I have virtually no time in which to knit, I've cast on the first of the 8 commissioned works that I need to complete.  It is, or will be, a very nice charcoal grey hat for a gentlemen.  The pattern is from the Dapperly Dashing Scarf & Hat combo on Ravelry...

Pictures tomorrow for WIP Wednesday, I promise...  In the meantime, feel my pain (or at least Sasha's) would you?

The bookcases are all as empty as the one for my cookbooks here (so no food comforts):

The exercise equipment has been dismantled for the move and buried in kitchen boxes (so no endorphin comforts):

and, perhaps worst of all, my neat and orderly garage has been metamorphosing into box mountain:

Sasha has never moved before and is clearly unhappy about the entire situation:

Oh well, this will all work itself out and for the better... eventually.

Happy Knitting Everyone!

Join me tomorrow for Work-In-Progress Wednesday!


  1. We just helped move my daughter and family (just across town) this weekend--still--- the boxes!!! They are slowly settling in. Crazy time of year to move. (we made our last move right after Christmas, so we still had box-living for the holidays. not fun!)
    Poor Sasha--she does looks a tad forlorn.
    Good luck with the transition. I'm amazed your still knitting through all this!

  2. Moving is hard but hopefully you will love your new place and get everything settled quickly so you can get back to the things you want to do. Good luck with the move!

  3. Your fur baby is so cute! I have a black and silver one that I adore!

  4. Aw, that last picture is so sweet!

    Good luck with the packing and moving. The picture of the empty bookshelf made me shiver ;)
