I've been gone again recently. I flew out to help my in-laws pack up all their treasures in order to move in with my brother and sister-in-law. They have a lot of treasures. I could've taken pictures of the beautiful antiques that she has, but I was on a mission. Had a job to get done. Well, at least try and make a dent. I think it's going to take awhile. I didn't take the time to blog or even read blogs! I know! Crazy!
There was no sightseeing or fun shopping adventures. Not that I didn't shop. Did you know that Home Depot has pretty cheap boxes? Much cheaper than U-Haul and not to mention the exorbitant amounts that Budget charges for boxes. Geez! Highway robbery. If I lived closer I could've come up with free boxes. But, I didn't have time for that. No monkey business, just packing, and lots of it.
But, you see here that I did accomplish something creative on the plane rides. I knew my current projects wouldn't pass muster. Little tiny metal knitting needles are just asking for problems. So, I did some last minute Ravelry searches. I found a scarf that would use up the one and only skein I had of Zanziba. The pattern is here. Haley's turned totally different than mine. It made a light and airy scarf with pretty bubble gum colors. I used size 19 needles that I had, thank you very much. A heavy wool scarf is just not usable in my neck of the woods, or should I say city. The stitch is called the Purse Stitch. It did the trick.
