Half time show...

Granny square afghan is about half done. This may be the last pic until it's finished. I'm very much hoping to finish it within the next 7 weeks so it will be done before I move at the end of April. It will be getting kind of busy though, what with packing and all, so I'm not sure I can meet that goal.

Had to order more yarn this week: the pumpkin and heathered brown.


Yarns for the woven afghan should arrive from Harrisville tomorrow. I cleaned up the 8-dent reed this afternoon and I might, just might, re-sley at 16 ends per inch instead of the 12 that it is currently. I can do that without having to re-thread the heddles. In fact it will be easier to re-sley 2-to-a-dent now that the heddles are threaded. I think I'll be happier with the pattern a little more square. I will also loosen up just a tiny bit on the beating.

In other news...

I passed my driving road test Thusday with a perfect score! Who'd have thought it!? Three of us from the driving school went over to take our test and all three of us passed so it was a happy event. Now I can seriously look for a car.

I found a slew of excellent looking boxes in the recycling bins out front this afternoon. (I saw someone moving in next door yesterday.) They appear to have been used only once so I snatched them up! Not enough for all my stuff, but it's a start. Plus it motivated me to go online and order a lot of book boxes (1.5 cu. ft.). For an estimate I had to give the movers an idea of how many books I'd be moving. It came up to about 200 linear feet. I'm glad I won't have to be lugging them to the truck and back myself! Estimate was higher than I wanted but I will have to live with it.

When I realize this will be the last month teaching my current students I get a little sad. That's one of the hard things to let go of. One of my students was especially sad when she heard the news a few months back. Luckily and happily for her and her brother, their parents have decided to move too! So they are all very excited now--which I find a bit of a relief. They are moving in the opposite direction of me though.
