And I'm back.
Just as Jen predicted, The Mister had our wireless network up and running long before the movers got all the furniture in. It wasn't until this morning, however, that I was finally able to get on my computer and got caught up on my e-mail and blog reading. (It's been a few days since I last logged in to Ravelry, however, so I'm going through some withdrawal in that respect.)
The move went relatively well. The movers did manage to lose some of our stuff and damage quite a few pieces, but they got everything in to the house in the minimum four hours and we bought extra insurance to cover those oopsies. After three days of cleaning, unpacking, reorganizing, and taking out trash and broken-down boxes, we are just about fully settled. We will need to do a little bit of furniture shopping (the one piece that the movers completely broke was our living room coffee table) and there's still "finishing" things to do like hang artwork, but the house is finally completely livable.
One room that's quite cozy is my new craft/fiber room, also known as our third floor guest room. Here is some photographic evidence that my stash arrived safely:
On the top shelf are my tools -- my scale, ball winder, and past issues of Interweave Knits. On the second shelf are my spinning supplies (though they're partially hidden by the two felted bags holding some WIPs): lazy kate with bobbins, spinning fiber, and some recent handspun. The yarn on the third shelf down had been living at my parents' since we put our old house on the market; there's enough there for at least five sweaters and a blanket as well as about three gallon bags full of leftover sock yarn (I see lots of baby socks in my future). On the bottom shelf, shoved toward the back, is a rather large bag of acrylic that's probably as old as my high school diploma that my mother thought I needed -- Jenn, are you still knitting squares for the animal shelter?
In the next section of the closet is the stash that I grabbed out of the old house at the last minute and brought with us to my parents', along with my drying racks and the plastic tub with my embroidery supplies. There's a shelf above this part of the closet, which you can't see, where I have my swift and blocking wires.
The stash and I are both very happy to be home, finally. It's been an incredibly exhausting weekend, but now that most of the work is done, I'm hoping to get back to normal with my knitting and blogging schedule. I promise I will take some other house photos just as soon as it's presentable!
