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.

Run and Auction Results and FOs!

Auction and run update first. We had a small turnout for the event - less than 100 people. A casino nearby gave $800 for a poker run on the same day and took most of the potential folks. They announced it after we had the fliers out, too. Oh well. We still raised almost $1200 for Rocky and Sara Dawn. That's not much against over $7000 owed, but it's a start.

Now FOs! I finished a sock in sockotta and have the second cast on. It's all cool greens blues and a bit of gold. I finished the front half of a tank top in Imagine rainbow. Twisted terribly, but it looks good. The second half is cast on for it also.

I know I count small pieces as FOs, but if I didn't I couldn't brag near so often. LOL

I did find that my cloverleaf sock has a dropped stitch in the cloverleaf pattern about 12 rows down. Don't know how I did that. I have to get good light, a crochet hook and much patience to figure out how to move it back to the current row. I put it down for now.

I can't use Mike's computer any more. He's in a mood, I guess. We just have to get out of that little trailer before it breaks up. Now Jim's staying with us also. And I thought 2 people in 28X8 was bad. Now it's 3 and our 3 fur kids. Mike did apply at OReilly's auto parts and is supposed to check on it today. Jim is working there full time as of next week.

Mike didn't go to CA. And I'm sure the $$ is gone, since he bought brake parts for Norn, and new pieces for his PC. sigh. But he is supposed to also call about some rent houses today also.
I did pick up a United Way application for prescription assistance. So that has to be turned in tomorrow. But they want to know if we filed a tax return, which we have not. And I bet we can't get help until next year, just like the Pell Grant, when all the high $ stuff from CA is gone.

I'm contacting contest winners today to get addresses. Hope to have the prizes out this next week after payday. My AKSP is going to get a combination May and June surprise, sigh. I wanted it to be 2 separate ones, and it just didn't work out.
