This is going to be a bit rambling.
Here’s my new yarn. I checked out the Haus of Yarn this afternoon, searching for some wooly love. Thanks to Jodi I found out about Ysolda‘s new shawlette pattern. Obviously, I needed some yarn. And by chance, I decided on the very same shade used in the pattern. It’s just so lovely. And I’m casting on right now.
It’s a kind of therapy really. See, we went with cheap movers and we should have known better. Turns out, my furniture has never left New Jersey. They packed it up August 1 … and it’s just been sitting around in some warehouse since then. Um. I don’t even want to think about what will be “lost” after all of this. The company kind of promised to have it here this week. Seriously ridiculous.
So, I went to Target (again) and bought some kitchen stuff so I can cook dinner for myself. And, you know, have a mug for my coffee. Funny thing, though, standing in Target looking for a cheap knife I randomly met up with my first grad school roommate. She’s here for the year. Weird. If I weren’t so tired by all of the running around getting stuff for a temporary kitchen (not to mention getting slightly worried about of the bills piling up as I attempt to find stop-gap stuff) I’d make it into an entertaining story. Instead, the bare fact: the academic world is really very small.
Now I’m going to knit. And then wash some dishes for dinner. Because my dishwasher is broken. Figures.
