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.

Temp Position Ending, Finished New Harry Potter, Shawl

The last week of my temp job is next week. The lady who had surgery will be back next week, at least part time. I'm hoping she'll still try to get me on at the home office so I can cover for her when she goes on trips etc. So far as I know, I've not made any major mistakes or anything. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

When we were consolidating storage from 2 rooms to 1 for a cheaper cost, I found some worsted weight wool bordering on chunky that a friend from APAC gave me earlier in the summer. I don't think there's enough to do anything great with, but It should make a winter weight shawl or two. Very useful, since all my winter stuff got put in the top back right corner of the new storage. One of our firends was helping and....
At least it doesn't get that cold here. Usually a tee shirt, sweatshirt and sweater will do the trick. Just enough to make this ample look like she weighs about 30 lbs more than she does. sigh. oh well.

I finished the newest Harry Potter this morning. And I cried and cried. Think I could have given Hagrid a run for his money. And that was my favorite character in the books. I do hope Ginny can talk sense into Harry, though. :)

I have a grey tweed that the lady said won't show a pattern, several balls of purple, a bit of brown, 1 ball of grey and one of white. I just tired the vest or sweater back she made on and it fits without blocking. I may just finshis a couple of fronts and use it as is..... The backs a lace and bobble pattern. The YOs show up but not the bobbles. Maybe I'll just use some basic faggoting stitch....or other simple YO pattern. Anyone have any suggestions? The purple will make a small sweater or a nice large shawl. Either way, I think I'll use some kind Aran type patterning. ..... If no one has suggestions, I'll ask the AK list. :


The dark is just poised again. I hate this feeling. I can get my other meds at the SOTE clinic, but have to take a 1/2 day off work to do so. But my Serzone is off the list of things they can get free for me. Because it's now generic. That doesn't lessen the cost to affordable though, sigh. So i have to take 1/2 day off of my last week of certain work to go down there and see if they can find some combination that will let me sleep, work for my depression and stop the anxiety attacks. It was such a releif when I found 1 med that did it all.
