What’s the big news? We’re moving to London!
So. It’s out now. I had to wait until DB told his boss that he’s quitting his job and moving to London before I could write about it here. He thinks at least one of his colleagues reads this blog. Hmmmm, I only know 6 people who read it, but I can’t really know, can I?
Anyway, we are moving because I have a new job and it’s in London. It’s a great job, otherwise I wouldn’t put us both through this turmoil. We’ve decided to sell our house. DB is quitting his job. It’s a lot to ask. It better be a damned AMAZING job.
Also as a consequence I’m closing down Yarns Apart. I have a big sale going on now, so if you are looking for some special yarn, go check it out now before it’s all gone. The prices listed are the sale prices and include 19% Dutch VAT. If you live outside the EU, the 19% will be taken off your shopping cart amount when you enter your ship to address.
Also as a consequence I probably won’t be posting here so often. We are super busy getting our house ready to put on the market and just getting everything ready for this big event. I start my new job in October but will commute for 3 months. In January we need to be living in London.
I do have a few photos for you. I quickly knit up this baby cardigan and hat. My new boss just had a baby. Well, his wife did. No, this is not brown nosing.
The above photo is the most accurate for color. The yarn is Pigeonroof Studios Sport weight in 80% merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon. The pattern is Sunnyside Baby Sweater (the cable version). The pattern calls for fingering weight yarn, but I had sport weight, so I made the smallest size and ended up with the middle size when finished. I improvised the hat to match the cable and garter pattern of the sweater. I think it is just adorable!
And what’s on my needles now? I’m still working on the first part of a lace shawl, which is taking forever. I’m still working on a second sock (of my own design). And I’ve just cast on a brioche vest, of my own design, that will be fabulous! I hope. I promise to at least keep up the blog with knitting photos. And running news. And moving news. And that’s all that’s happening in my life anyway!
