WIP Wednesday: Odds and ends

I told you I wouldn’t post another picture of the Mosaic Afghan until it was completely done with all the ends woven in. But, just so you know progress is still being made, I saved all the excess ends I’ve trimmed after weaving in sufficient length to secure the yarn. See?

I wonder how big this pile will be when I’m finally done.

I attached the third skein last night to my cabled shrug. The work is going fast. The cable pattern is easily memorized which makes this project great for television knitting. I expect to make quite a bit of progress while watching the Presidential debate this evening. That is, if I don’t end up throwing my yarn and project at the screen every time one of the candidates rattles off a platitude or falsehood. (It’s an awful thing, being a political junkie. I both love and loathe politics. It’s a sickness, I swear.)

Moving update: I’ve talked to multiple coordinators involved with our relocation this week, with more scheduled for next week. I can’t keep track of them all. Luckily, I don’t have to because the master coordinator does that for me. I have the best employer in the world.

No, I haven’t forgotten how to knit…

…nor how to type.  I've been busy.  Moving.  From California to Alabama.  Yes, that is a long way, both physically and culturally.  But I've lived in the South before and, although I'll always consider California — especially the Central Coast — to be my heart's home, I'm glad to be back in Dixie.

I'm slowly getting back into the yarn groove and should have some FOs to show off in the near future.  Unless, that is, spouse drafts me to help strip 80 years' worth of paint off windowsills again.  Yes, we bought an old house.  And I love it, despite the 80-years-thick coat of paint on every wooden surface that isn't the floor.  What this means, however, is I'll have to squeeze out time for yarn somewhere in between time spent at work and time spent on renovation projects.  And that means cutting out the hours I spend writing magazine reviews.  The fun had gone out of that anyway, so, meh.  No big deal.  I may make an exception for Rowan, though.  They only come out twice a year.
