Farewell Solitude

Tomorrow is moving day. Tonight is our last night on our own. We will be co-habiting with my brother and his wife here for a week, then we will be off, and staying with my sister in law and her fiance in London until we find a house. Then we will be sharing with another expat couple. It's a long time (nearly ten years) since I've lived with anyone except Neil and Wormwood so I'm rather interested in how it will be.

Today I took a day off from packing, which was perhaps not the best of plans as there's still so much to do and there's an army arriving at 10:00am tomorrow to carry (preferably full) boxes. But I had had enough, mentally and physically, so I have studiously ignored all the piles of mess and empty boxes.

On Podcasts:
I listened to 'Cast-On' today for the first time - I quite liked it. I am in the process of downloading back-episodes, I have a cunning plan where six or seven episodes of Cast-On will get me through the loooong flight sans knitting THAT'S RIGHT, NO KNITTING ON THE PLANE. What a waste of 27 hours :-( The Malaysia Air guidelines are very clear, no pointy sticks.

A Finished Object Pic:
Here's my LL socks all done - I still have some left over so plan to make a hat to match the little socks :-)

I hope your journey is a safe one and if you want a place to hang out to knit whilst in London the door is always open at Stash or many of the knitting groups

Love the socks and the mini socks. Which pattern did you knit for the adult socks and which LL colour is that??

The big socks are Harebell lace and the baby ones basketweave, both from SKS. The colour is Ravenswood. I have almost finished a hat to match the baby socks and I still have some left - LL rocks!
