All settled.... almost

I'm all moved in and it only took three weeks! The actual move took two days, but the settling in has taken quite a bit longer. Everything is pretty much where I want it to be now. I'm almost totally settled in. There are a few things here and there that I'm missing, but I'm sure, with time, I'll take care of it. The important thing is that I start making it my home.

For one thing, I think I need larger wall coverings... my tiny Monet poster is almost comical on my huge empty wall.

My knitting room is only missing a small side table that I think would be perfect next to the chair.After all, notions need to be placed somewhere while you're working. Come to think of it, so does a cup of tea!

As surprising as it may seem, I've actually done some knitting through all this. For one thing, I've finished more dishcloth's than I can possibly count. I made myself some, and then my old roommate wanted some, so I made her about a bazillion.

I also finished up a pair of socks that have been on the needles for an eternity. Ok, not an eternity...only since last October, but for me, that's a long time.

I made them toe-up so that I could have knee socks. I absolutely love them. They're out of Lorna's Laces sock yarn and they're divine!

I also started some boot socks out of some yarn I picked up at Rhinebeck last year. They're the Spiral Boot Socks out of Interweave Knits.The true color of these socks is much less washed out looking than this picture. I really can't begin to tell you how in love with this pattern I am. I just want to go out and buy a mini skirt just so I can show them off when they're done!

Decorating is so much fun, I'm sure you're going to have a blast making your new place a home :)

Love the socks, by the way. If I didn't have a gazillion things on my knitting to do, I'd knit a pair of those boot socks right up!

Do you use a particular pattern for your dish clothes?

Glad you hear you are getting settled into your new place. Love the finished knee high socks and your new socks too!

It's the little things that take the most time to find. Enjoy it. :-)

Love the socks...only wish it was cold weather so I didn't sweat just looking at them. LOL!!

The new apt and the knitting look great - have fun settling in.

I reserved Affluenza from the library based on your recommendation. It should be here soon!

A new place is fun and stressful! Glad to hear you are almost settled in!
We are waiting for Affluenza to show up too - we've been reading our way through What to Eat and In Defense of Food (along with a whole lotta light and fluffy cos life is not meant to be Doom and Gloom!).
One of my fave tv shows talks about the Jones wannabes in suburbia as being "effluent." LOL!
