It's the sweetest little 1950's unit, on one of my favourite streets in our seaside town. We have a huge parkland right opposite, as well as the town's Botanic Gardens one block away. In addition to that, both Lily and I can walk to school/work, and the beach is just a pleasant stroll away.
All in all, it's pretty perfect.
But, I hear you cry! This is a knitting blog!!
Last night, sitting tucked up on my couch in my new little apartment, I managed to complete quite possibly the oldest WIP in history.
I first cast on these socks in October, 2006! check it out here...
Technically, these are not the same socks. I was originally making knee-hi's (um, yeah. what was I thinking?!) for Socktoberfest 2006, and it was the first time I'd "splurged" on yarn from overseas.
From memory, the wool and shipping, combined with a spectacularly crappy exchange rate, saw this particular yarn costing me about AU$40? Although, even by today's standards, that's pretty pricey, I will agree.
Anyway, the knee-hi's were proving problematic with terrible pooling so I ripped them out in around, oh...2009? and promptly shoved the yarn down to Deep Stash.
In the fortnight before the move, there was precious little knitting time, but in an effort to stay sane, I thought I'd cast on some socks that could be picked up, put down, tossed around, depending on the mood of the day.
These were the socks that got me from House A to Home B and I love them for it.
