I know. I know. It's been deathly quiet over here. There's been good reason, though. A big decision making process has been in the works over the past few months. The boyfriend was offered a job and we had to decide if I would be going with him. After lots of hobnobbing and wrestling (mental wrestling, wink wink, nudge nudge), the final call was affirmative.
He'll be leaving April 9 and I'll be joining him April 25.
Sadly, due to lack of allowable shipping kilos and space restraints, I can't take my entire stash. We hashed out exactly how much I could bring with me and while it is only a teensy weensy fraction of my fibery goodness, I know I'll survive. My sister came to my apartment last night to lend moral support in the Great Stash Roundup and it was welcome and oh so needed. I decided today that instead of tossing it all into storage, it can live at her place and if there is something she would like to knit from it, she is more than welcome to. After all, I'll never miss a few skeins of sock yarn and this way, if I want something, it will be easy for her to ship it to me. It is a damn good incentive to get everything loaded into Ravelry so I can easily see what is waiting for me and plan projects with my far-away-easily-mailable stash.

My boyfriend is most excited about the first pic.
You can expect the blog to become more active again after the move because I'm taking a couple months off from work to explore and play. I've been dreaming of lots of wool knits to keep us toasty warm. Lots more details to follow in the coming days!
