Just a quick heads up: I'm starting a really busy two week period, so I may not have a lot to show you. But for today, let's look at my progress on Powder!
I've done the first of four repeats of the three-section pattern (got that?) and I think it looks good. I'm really glad I decided to do it in off white--it gives it that Aran feel. The yarn is Cascade 220 that has been in the stash forever, so I'm happy to be able to use that up (quite honestly, if I hadn't moved my stash out here, I would have never know I had it).
So we're coming up on the end of the term. Tomorrow I have back-to-back doctoral dissertations (I'm already tired) and a late afternoon thing. Friday I drive back to Eugene for a 3pm meeting and a 5pm gathering of my colleagues IN PERSON! Tim comes to Eugene Friday evening and then Saturday morning we meet with a realtor. Then Memorial Day weekend will be spent cleaning and packing, cleaning and packing. Tim is taking next week off to clear out the house. I have my last few class things, grading, and cleaning out my work office next week to do. We'll spend the following weekend in Eugene too, then Monday June 7 and Tuesday June 8 are the final presentations for the masters program I run. And I'm getting crown prep on June 7.
I'm exhausted just thinking about it, but I think we will be able to clear out most if not all of the house (honestly, a huge amount is done so if we can get a good clean out of the garage, we'll be all set).
Like everywhere else, houses are selling like hotcakes and we expect ours will be no exception--it is in a good school district and is close to the University.
I have to tell you, I'm kind of filled with anxiety about all this---I'm a girl that really likes her down time, so I'll just have to make sure I give myself nice breaks through all of this.
Thanks for reading!
