When we decided to move, Lori and I began feverishly packing. Initially I thought I would leave my hand work project, the New York Beauty, available in the event I got a chance to work on it. After relocating the blocks several times, trying to keep them out of the way as we worked to pack the non-essential items, I finally gave up and packed it.
Now we're into what I refer to as the "dog days" of the move. We've packed most of the non-essential items, but with twelve days still to live in this house, it's too early to pack the items we need for our daily existence. Lori and I are finding we have a lot of nervous energy and little to do. We were both lamenting having packed our hand work.
A trip to Wal-mart for yarn and needles became warranted. Lori is now crocheting, and I am knitting a scarf. Besides being an outlet for my need to keep busy, the scarf will come in handy during the Kansas winter. A win-win!
