Things are finally calming down around here. Whew! We moved across the country (again), finally got a house, moved in, cleaned it (so glad THAT is finally over) and are just about all unpacked. It has been a long freaking month! The whole moving thing seemed like such an impossible task at times, especially on the drive here, but we made it :) (having done this twice already I’m not sure why this time was different, but I was definitely more stressed this time) The drive was very pretty at times tho, and I rocked out to oldies most of the way ;P
There was a small crisis at one of the hotels on the way over when one of our little darling fuzzballs, Gizmo, played Houdini and crawled into the wall through a small hole under the sink to hide under the shower, causing me to panic. She wouldn’t come out for anything; not sweet talking, food, snacks, or even wet cat food. Finally the manager went into the next room and banged on the bathtub wall in there, which scared her out. I wanted to simultaneously hug and strangle her. After that every hotel room was thoroughly inspected for even the smallest escapist opportunity.
She has since adjusted well after her recapture, lol.
I love this hat! It’s cute, it’s comfy, it was pretty fast to knit. The yarn is Malabrigo Yarns Rios, color Jupiter. And the pattern is Karen Borrel’s “I heart Pom Poms hat” found on Ravelry. Love it!
My craft room has been the last to get unpacked, and I can’t wait to get it all out of boxes and organized! There are a lot of cool challenges/daily art journal prompts going on right now, and coming up soon, like Dawn Sokol’s NaNoJouMo, and her online holiday art journaling workshop that starts Dec 2nd(free), there was inktober from Jake Parker (which I completely missed being internet-less almost all of October, but there are some awesome and inspiring things all over the internet that people have made in relation to it, so I am still checking it all out), NaNoWRiMo, The Documented Life project from Art to the 5th, which will be starting anew Jan 1st (so hopefully I will be able to keep up with it this time ;P ), just to name a few. I also signed up for another Jane Davenport class, Frolicaholic, and I just bought Alena Hennessy’s new book “The Painting Workbook” which I can’t wait to get into! So I really need to get my art stuff out and accessible soon :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
