All I want to do is to knit.

I don't have any knitting to show off.

Marty and I moved into a new apartment last week. Not surprisingly, the first thing I packed was my yarn stash, and the first thing I unpacked (and put in a nice display cabinet) was my yarn stash too. Surprisingly however, I didn't get to knit all weekend when we were moving and all week since my knitting BOOKS and PATTERNS were still in the garage. (We got too tired of moving boxes up 3 flights of stairs so we started just stacking them in the garage, to be unpacked "later")

So Thank GOD for PDF patterns on my computer. :D And my beautiful yarn stash... And I cast on like 3 new projects. Ohhh... It's gonna be a while until I post a FO picture of any of these.

Recently, I've been just buying more and more patterns so I have tons of things I want to start but not enough time to knit. Work is getting busier and by the time I come home, I eat and pass out on the couch.

This weekend is the first weekend in the new apartment. The couch still has the plastic on, and the TV is still on the floor but all I want to do is knit on my Rosebud Socks or Auburn Sweater. Or Cocoon shawl. And I have about 20 million things to fix and tweak on the projects I finished knitting on.

Moving really sucks.
