Tales From The Road

So our move has begun. We will be road tripping across the USA to Martha’s Vineyard and then we will wiggle down the East Coast to Virginia. The whole trip should take us about 2.5 weeks. As of today we are in Nebraska. It has been so enjoyable watching the changing landscape while barreling east on I-80. 

In the car, we have been listening to an audio book called Desperation by Stephen King. I have to say it is a little creepy to listen to on this particular trip. In the story, a psychopathic cop targets people on road trips as they travel down Highway 50 in Nevada. Thankfully, we didn’t take that route 😬. 

I have also been knitting up a storm. I finished an Etsy order ( Toddler Hat made with Cascade Heritage Paints in Baltimore) and started some socks. I am knitting with Payton’s Kroy Sock yarn in Grey Brown Marl. Not my favorite yarn to knit with. I like a little more sheen and springiness to my sock yarn. I am curious to see if the softness level changes after a soak. I have two skeins to work with so I am making some pretty big socks. 


Well only 1,400 more miles to go! 

Until Next Time,

New Beginnings

Hello, lovely readers! I am sorry I have been gone for so long. Life has been super crazy and I have just recently been able to take a deep breath. What has been going on? Well, my husband and I have made the bold choice of uprooting our current lives to move to…CHINA!

4e6304ea1eeb3762da8cd47445657874For a couple of years now, my husband and I have been discussing moving internationally. We both love to travel and explore new cultures and living abroad seemed like a great way to continue to educate ourselves about the world. So earlier this year we began applying for jobs in Asia. After a few interviews, we were both hired as primary school teachers at an international school in southern China. We were happy with the job and benefits and signed a contract for 2 years. Since we got hired, I have been so busy with wrapping up my current job, applying for a visa/work permit, and moving out of my apartment that I have had little mojo to blog. As of yesterday all major work is done so I should be able to return to my regular knitting postings. 

Here is my last shot of the Bay Bridge (which I rode across daily to get to work).  I have mixed feelings about leaving San Francisco and the Bay Area as I have lived in the city for 6 years. However, I am looking forward to what lays ahead. This summer we plan on driving across America to visit with family and friends. So check back for postings from the road.

Until Next Time,
