A Finish!

The move is over -- I'm mostly settled -- still have lots and lots of boxes in the garage and basement to go through.  My new sewing room in the basement won't be started til after the first of the year, and I've contracted to have my driveway redone and I have no idea when that will be accomplished, but I've successfully left behind my huge house and moved into one a third of the size!  There will be more downsizing being done as I unpack.  I still haven't uncovered all my sewing things, but I have set up one of my machines in the bedroom and can work on piecing when the mood strikes.

Until then, I've been knitting -- I just finished this hat last night -- I am definitely not a fast knitter, but I do enjoy the process.  This pattern is called "Hurricane" by Andrea Goutier.  I downloaded it from Ravelry and I will be donating this first one for our hat and mitten tree at church to be given to a needy child.  I hope to make many more during the next year for the same purpose.

I'm glad I moved to town....I'm minutes away from everything!  And a half an hour closer to my daughter and her family.  I miss the view of the woods and wildlife from my  kitchen window though.  I don't miss the work involved in keeping a huge house and taking care of the acreage.  I have a small yard now, and it takes the landscape man to mow it in about 10 minutes - and not on a riding mower! 

Until next time, Blessings.

Glad to hear that the move went well and that for the most part you are happy about it! Have missed your posts, and look forward to many more.
