Rehoming posessions

One of the things that happens when you start to sort and clean is finding an amazing number of things that need to go and live somewhere else.

Take for example this shawl –

Hoxbro Winged Shawl

which I knit late in 2011 and managed to use up a lot of yarn (over 2000 meters) worth. I loved knitting it, the Shadow knit pattern was interesting but the colors were just not mine. So it got hauled around a bit, occasionally worn but mostly it hung out on the shelf.

On Friday, after having lunch with a friend we came back to the house. I was tossing things out of the closet and she said – that does not go out – it is beautiful. Her colors, and it went home with her.

So now I just have to go back to the garage, make a place for a few hundred books. Organize the sewing room, find another place for a couple of dozen puzzles…

Nap time sounds so much better.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
