WIP, my life

Hi everyone.  I'm back for a wee bit of blogging.  We are all moved out of our house in Scotland, and everything is in storage.  Then we jumped a plane to my parents house in Arizona.  Oh how I love the sunshine and warmth.  It is very much like a Scottish summer here.  

It is official.....I got the job in Australia!  Now we wait, while the visas are processed and we can get moved.  No idea how long it will take, but I'm looking forward to having some time to relax, knit, read, play with my kids, and be warm.  I'd forgotten what it was like to be warm.  Or live in a house with heating that works.  Heating is not to be over-rated.

Just yesterday I pulled out my knitting project I've been working on, the Lintilla.  I'm in the decreases, and hopefully will finish this soon.  I did 22 repeats of the body before I started the decreases.  I also managed to knit two Christmas presents, so hopefully I can share those after the holidays.

For us it is warm here in Arizona, but not this warm....................  

These Scottish girls are braver (or crazier) than I am!  

Happy crafting everyone, and Happy Holidays!
