moving is stressful. And expensive.
It also turns out that I have a lot of yarn & a lot of books. The thing is though, most of the yarn is coming to Vancouver and most of the books are going into storage. I decided to wear my big girl panties though and did thin out my stash for Vancouver. And by thin out, I mean I put some yarn into storage with my books. It just means I can go to Vancouver and decide that only two suitcases full of yarn isn't enough and buy more.
Anyhoo- packing is a nightmare. My boxes are old and broken from too many moves and I've completely run out of light stuff to pack in amongst my books. I still have about 8 giant art books and all my comics & my cartoon books and about two shelves worth of books to put into storage. I haven't touched my clothing yet- I can't even think about it. I'm giving away whatever I don't bring to Vancouver and even though there are shirts I haven't worn for, oh, years- I still want to keep them. Sigh. And oh yeah- it's 11:45 at night and this is what my bed looks like-It's not good people, not good. So I'm spending a lot of time playing Sims and Boomshine (damn you Lisa!) to avoid doing actual work. The thing about procrastination is that it lends itself to non-productive work. My knitting has been suffering. The diligent may have noticed that I've been working on the same two items since March now: the Sari Shawl and the RPM knee socks. The Sari shawl is in the final chart pattern but it has so many stitches- it's a pretty quick knit shawl but still & the socks? Oh good god I finished one and I forced myself to start the other because it took forever! Knee socks on 2mm needles? Seriously, somebody just kick me. So anyhoo I went downtown and bought some nice chunky yarn (my only chunky yarn is destined for a sweater so it was a legit purchase) and brought out my lovely birch needles and started this scarf from Twinkle Big City. I started that last night so it's a nice easy knit. I'll save it for Xmas I think.
And that is all.
