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.

Moving Up and out of the travel trailer!!

Well, I think things might maybe be looking up.... We have found a house trailer that we can rent to own with 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths. We've paid down on it and hope to move in by Hannukah. Depends on how healthy Jim and Mike are. The Fur Kids all approve. They've been running laps from one end to the other and around the island in the kitchen. It just takes $300 here to get the electric turned on. We haven't had electric in our name in 5 years or so. It's been billed to the parks, who in turn have billed us. So it's now deposit time. Let's see.... gathering change, hunting through pockets.......

Mike's SSI finally came through, it's not much but every little bit helps. Thanks to PT on his neck, he's starting to feel better and for the first time since the wreck, his legs are less swollen. He's on Lasix and potassium on top of all his other meds.

I have a new job, still a temp position, but again it may become perm. It's at the ccounty hospital in engineering. I get to answer phones, page engineers, take care of work orders and POs. Keeps me busy anyway. Folks are really nice too.

On the traveling knitting front, the SSS Sock Swap sock has gone from Ft. Sill, to home, to the SOTE clinic to home to SW Hospital Emergency Room, to home. And I finally have the heel turned and am working on the foot! I've changed pattern on my purple socks 3 times and haven't decided yet. And my shrug/wrap in purple is still on hold due to not being able to make my mind up about the pattern. And holiday knitting, right. If I can get to my stash, maybe hats for the guys and start on Mike's socks.

I can't wait to get into the house trailer! Our own bathtub and shower! On opposite sides of the trailer's bathroom. The shower and toilet are actually in a separate room from the tub and sinks. So much better than the park's shower house or the tiny bathtub in the travel trailer! Don't know if I'm more excited about that or the working kitchen! LOL
