MovingKnitter

Why moving knitter? Because it's me. :) Not only am I in the process of moving from California to Oklahoma, but I knit on the move in all kinds of places. I'll write about the knitting I do or want to do and the places as I knit in them.

Name:
Location: Lawton, Oklahoma, United States

I'm an ample in my mid 40s with 2 kids, both grown and on their own. My favorite list is ample-knitters! I've lived in 9 states so far and hope this move to our home state is the last one.I have 3 shih tzu's that are my kids. My husband is retired (again) and very mechanical.

Rest Day

Today is a rest day. We took a car and pulled a 26 foot travel trailer from the Bay Area of California to Lawton, Oklahoma in 4 days. After getting it set up and visiting family and friends we started back to California and made it in 2 days. Talk about tired!

We'll be packing more tools, stash, knitting books, and household goods for another trip in about a week.

I started a Shapely T, from whiteliesdesigns.com (Wonderful site!) and realized I'd left the paper pattern in CA. So I have the back cast on and about 6" done. I dropped back to one of my novelty scarves that I've had as a car project for a month or so. After getting it back on the needles and staightening out the dropped stitches in the middle I really made progress. It's almost 5' long now and should be done on this next run. Turned out my youngest Shih Tzu, Run, decided that my bamboo fifteens were good to chew and the scarf was in his way. So off the scarf went to the seat and he was happily chewing on the knob end when I saw him. I raised him on a bottle and he's spoiled rotten, so I couldn't say much. Just sighed, gave him his bone and took the needles, scarf and attached yarn to fix.

I want to start something else, like I really need to! I have a red hat or a brown scarf/shawl that are talking to me along with my red socks. I'll try to get a picture of them and post it tomorrow. I have to find the digital camera first. Then you can help me decide which one to go for first.
