Giant Granny Squares and Maine

We have the house in Maine! Right in Portland. Let me tell you, I did a happy dance like no other yesterday. I wish I had some photos to show you, but unfortunately my husband forgot to take some. Regardless, he says it a lovely old house that is even better than we thought it would be and we're super excited.
I'll have a studio! I'm already dreaming about how I'll set it up.

The minute we get to Maine I'm eating a lobster (I've never had one before!) and going to visit the Cape Elizabeth lighthouse. I've been dreaming over that photo for a few months now. Oh and I'm going to touch the Atlantic Ocean. Despite being in NC for a few years now, I've never made it to the coast. I grew up playing in the Pacific Ocean, so finally getting to the Atlantic will be something to check off my bucket list.

I'm still trying to sell my lovely Irma (Kymco Like 50cc scooter) over on Craigslist. I'm hoping to use the money from her to get our Jeep Cherokee checked over and ready to go to Maine. I figure I'll need that a heck of a lot more than a 50cc scooter. If you know anyone who would be interested in an excellent quality scooter (In North Carolina) ca you head them over here pretty please.

And in non moving news, just so I have a fibery photo to update with (blog posts without pictures really aren't very fun are they?)  I'm still randomly working on my giant granny square blanket. It's eating up my acrylic stash at an amazing rate. The colours are just randomly placed and I'm doing 3 rows of each. I'm about to run out of large skeins of yarn though, so I think I'm going to switch to one colour per row.

No clue what I'm going to do with it lol. My husband has decided he doesn't like this sort of blanket because it catches his toes. (Yup, thats the quote) Amusing guy eh? He's cute. Anyways, most of the things I've been mindlessly working on will probably end up as Christmas gifts. It's more just busy work until we find out whats going on with the move. We have to be out of this house in NC on the 31st, and we've yet to find out our relocation package. Busy work keeps me sane.
(I'm the sort who needs to plan FAR in advance to feel comfortable and know we've got a long distance moving company set up.)

My Honey badger socks are sadly neglected by the giant granny square. I'll pick them back up soon! It's not the pattern, which is lovely, I'm just OCDing on crochet for a bit. Our central AC decided to stop today though, so the last thing I want to do is work on a blanket.

Hope all is well with everyone who reads my blog! Are there any exciting life changes going on for you?

Oh and before I forget- I've mirrored my blog over on Wordpress. I'm not sure which site I'm going to continue with- but I'll be sure to update once I've tried that site out a bit and see if I like it better than blogger.

Also if you're on Google Plus I've got a great fibery circle started and love checking out everyone's updates. This is where you can find me on Google Plus


  1. I can't wait to see photos of your house! Also, I have serious blanket envy.

  2. *HUGS* So much coolness. We'll have to do some fiber field trips once you get settled in.

  3. Love the granny square blankie! I think you might need it in Maine! I'm thrilled for all of you for the big move to come. (Anything that gets you out of the way of tornadoes is a good thing in my book!)

    Dad has a new blog to add to your list! Caboose Coffee was launched yesterday.... All those stories you heard as a kid are now going to be out there for all to read.
