More Mail!

Look what my tea knitter pal sent me! First, last Friday, I got this pretty postcard.

Then today, I got this card and tea sample. Isn't that a beautiful cottage? I wnat to live there. I am going to drink the rooibus tomorrow. Yum!

Sadly, I didn't do a lot of knitting this weekend. But I did do a lot of moving! G and I moved the first wave of stuff into his apartment. Next Saturday we'll move the second wave (which means I'll be packing a lot this week. But after little knitting last week, I made myself a deal: I'll go to Curves, then work on packing in one room a night and then knit/blog for the rest of the evening). We're going to do the final wave of moving on June 3. And of course this all means that I'll have more time in the very near future for knitting! In three weeks I'll be moved. That is a trick I used on myself in college before exams. Because, of course BEFORE exams, life sucks. All the studying and paper writing (and researching, if, like me, you procrastinated until the bitter end) stretched out in front of you, seemingly endless. So, I would say, "In two weeks, it will be over and I'll be on break." And it reminds me that the time will pass. So I have my little schedule and I think it will work out. Plus, it's not like it is all work and no play until June. I have my 30th birthday/bachelorette weekend over Memorial Day to look forward to.

So, I don't have any good knitting updates today. However, I remembered that I never put a picture of my green scarf up. I finished this in April. It is a 2x2 rib in Blue Sky Cotton. It is so soft. I love it. And love the color. And it only took one skein, about 150 yards. I have a whole second ball of it that I think will be going to my tea swap pal.

Glad you liked the little cards.

Good luck with all the moving and packing. I hate the UNPACKING even more.

That is what I should make with the Blue Skys Cotton yarn I just made a sweater out of since I am going to have to frog it. A nice scarf.
