Two Days

That's how long it took me to find a skein of yarn! In my own house. Embarrassing. It's a skein of black Merino Oro and I intend to use it for the Mystery Shawl 3. I found the other two skeins I had (the chocolate and the pale blue) but not the black. After two days, I found it. Sad, really.

My inlaws have sold their house in Tucson and will be moving out here the weekend of the 19th.

They will be staying in our basement bedroom until they find a place to live that they can agree on. Agree on. It'll take awhile.

95% of my stash is in the basement closet and basement laundry room. My mission over the next week is to photograph all of it. Ravelry here I come!

Here's a pic of my tiny sock toe....

Pattern: Baudelaire
Yarn: Claudia Handpainted; color: Butter Pecan
Needle: Addi Turbo 2.5mm
Purpose: Tour De France KAL (TDF KAL)

Since I had the camera out, Davis asked me to take some pictures of him making funny faces...

Love that little guy!

Off to some serious shutterbuggery, Ruth!

He cracks me up. So cute! At least you found your yarn! I'm still searching for the rogue helmet liner.

Oh, boy. I hope you like your in-laws. One of the greatest gifts my husband ever gave me was no in-laws. Well, one brother. But he's cool. I did not return the favor. I have a huge family, many of whom regularly stop by to visit our guest room for a week. Or twelve. Hang in there!

i once lost a ball of trekking xxl while knitting a pair of socks. I had just finished one and in my infinite intelligence, i pull the ball in a "safe place" until i could co the next sock. Yeah, i lost it for 2 weeks. which does not beat my record of loosing my sheepy measuring tape and my chibi needle holder.
