Not Knitting? Eeeeep

I knit absolutely zero yesterday.  I haven't knit any real amount since last week..  I suppose that this should be usual when you are moving, but I always dream that I knit through it all. 

I am starting to get a little worried.  There is a bit of a deadline on the big wrap.  I am knitting it for a Knit Girllls challenge and I really would like to finish it in the time allotted. That time is done at the end of March.

We shall see.

Still, I am pretty pleased with yesterday's work.  I got the rest of the yarn settled.

In a perfect world, this room would have a wool room and would be larger, but you can't have everything.  The wool is really quite perfect for this corner.  I had my bed there the last few days, but I just had to move it. 

That corner is the cold corner.  I don't know why.  My dear Mr. Needles tried to resolve the issue a few times over the years, but it still is the cold corner.  He looked at the wall from the outside.  He looked at it from inside and everything is where it is supposed to be.  The corner remains cold.   

It sounds a little silly, but that massive volume of wool, sitting in a chilly corner makes my room feel warmer.  I doubt that is changes things at all, really.  It isn't fitting close to the wall with its sloped sided bins.  It's all bagged and binned and tidy.  That wall of wool in my field of vision makes me feel warmer and so the room is warmer. 

The other thing is, that with all the wool in its allotted place, I feel much more settled.  There are some boxes to empty, some pictures to hang, a few odds and ends to take to storage, but it's starting to feel like my own little zone again, my hidey hole from the modern world, where only wool and I exist.

I am sure that wool is providing excellent insulation. And yes, for most people I would say it's normal not to knit a stitch during a big move. But knowing your amazing output, I can see how it would feel weird to have a few days of no knitting! Very glad you are safely settled though. And selfishly glad you are back in my end of town!
