So, sorry for the very sporadic blog posting the past few weeks.
I've been keeping a bit of a secret. Back in the Spring, I applied for another job. During the summer, I was told I'd made the final cut. Then, while we were in England, I was given a final job offer. And then the kicker: they asked when in September I wanted to start. When we were still in England.
Did I mention the new job isn't in California?
So, when we arrived home I had less than three weeks to wrap up everything in California and move. Of course, in reality, there was no way to move everything - including 3 cats - in that amount of time. So, I've been hanging out on my own, while Partner has been back in California getting the house and cats ready. I've been starting a new job, finding a car, and finding a new place for us to live.
I flew back for our anniversary and am finally get a little bit of time to breathe.
Before I left, we spent two great days absorbing some of my favorite things about California.
Partner marked a running course...
There has been intermittent knitting, including knitting up some fast gifts for the friends that have been putting me up until I find us a place to live. Dish clothes, of course!
The always dependable, Double Bump
A new one, the Lace Curtain
And, to use up the scraps, trying my hand at a Log Cabin, with a bias
Pattern: Each is linked above
Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream, 149 yards - they all ended up being kind of small, especially after a wash
Modifications: on the log-cabin, I did more garter rows along the outside.
Knitting yardage total 2012: 1881
