New Needles!

I am one very excited knitter. I have finaly ordered the knit picks options set! I have been dreaming of these since they came out.

While I lay in wait for the postman I am slowly making headway on the pulse cotton sweater. I think I have out grown this project. I got the yarn (Cotton classic) and started this project many months ago intending for it to be my introduction to color work. Now, I feel so confident that I want to jump into some fair isle socks! I am only one third of the way up the back of the sweater and I am bored with it. I know it has a cool stripe, a vertical stripe, bit I am still bored. I am finding that I like working with the cotton yarn although it is a little heavy. Still bored. Maybe it is the endless 2x2 rib. The whole sweater is in 2x2 rib. Maybe I should have seen this coming? I shall persevere. It is nice to have an easy project on the needles and I know the recipient will wear this sweater until it falls off of him so there is that to think of.

I have finished the baby things and sent them off in plenty of time as the new arrival is expected at the end of March.

As spring break nears and with it the middle of the semester I find myself thinking about what is next. My boyfriend is done with school here in Arkansas at the end of this term and will be going to Germany. I will be moving our house hold back to my home state of Vermont, putting it in storage and joining him at the end of August after my sister's wedding. It will be a busy summer! I have moved quite a bit in the last few years so I think I have the hang of it now. I am a little unsure about moving overseas though. I have been overseas before, but always with the Navy so I have not had to move my stuff and find a place to live. I'm sure it will all work out and I am very excited about going to Germany!
