We get the house tomorrow. I haven't heard from the super yet about getting the keys, but I'll take care of that in the morning. The movers don't come until next Saturday, but all the sudden it seems like there's a whole lot to do. And while I'm feeling a bit better, being sick is not helping things.
Me thinks there won't be much knitting done in the next week or so either. Yesterday I did make some good progress on Sophie--I finished the back and started the sleeve. And my jungle stripe sock is progressing--the back of Sophie makes a nice background.
And yes Sophie is long. The yarn is Elann Denim and like Twilleys Denim (the called for yarn), it is meant to be washed and shrunk, so the pattern is knit longer to account for the change in row gauge from 6.75 rows to the inch to 8 rows to the inch. I also remember why this project got abandoned last summer--the cotton is hard on the hands. I'm going to try alternating knit-nights with this and something nice and woollen and elastic, though I think all I'll be holding this month is a hammer and a paint brush.
That's when I get excited instead of panicky--this new place is going to be great. And just like birth, I'll probably forget the worst of the move once it's all over.
