It's Official

We're moving. Again. Yes, this is a good thing. We're moving out of a third floor walkup into a ground level basement suite. No more lugging bags of groceries up two flights of stairs after a day of standing all day at work! The new place is a little outside of the town center, but has good bus service and is closer to the lake. We like that!

Now the packing starts! We'll be moving in to the new place (and out of here) by the end of May and we're both looking forward to getting settled in over there. As you can certainly understand, there won't be a lot of knitting time in the next few weeks.

Actually, there hasn't been a lot of knitting in the last while, other than knitting the seemingly endless garter stitch section of the Shetland Christening Dress. Last Saturday, John and I went up to the Oyama Lake Alpaca Farm to watch (and record) this year's shearing. That was fun! If you'd like to hear about it, do check out this week's podcast. Unlike last year's visit to the farm, this time all the equipment worked, thankfully. You can listen to the podcast over in the sidebar.

Here are a couple of pictures, and there are a few more over on the podcast notes page.

What's going on over there????

I'm also putting together a YouTube video; once it's ready and uploaded, I'll link to it from here. Now, back to hockey watching; it's playoff time!!

  1. I saw your video, and loved it. That table they shear on is amazing. Sure makes things a lot easier.

    I am glad you are happy about the move. I've moved several times in my life, and I hope I never have to do it again. More work than I could handle these days. LOL Best wishes for a happy life in your new home. :)
