Back Again, from a Different Place

I know, it's been quite a while. During the past 3 months I have:

- Packed a house of stuff into many, many boxes
- Gotten flooded at the NH Sheep and Wool Festival
- Attended the Mass. Sheep & Wool Festival, thankfully with no rain
- Acquired a couple of wheels, one a lucky find and one an orphan that found me
- Sold a house
- Moved across the country
- Fell, broke both bones in my leg a number of times, surgically acquired a batch of steel in my leg, and have been in a cast ever since
- Unpacked a few boxes before the fall
- Cancelled out of doing a Sheep to Shawl a week after my fall
- Finished 8 pairs of socks, 2 rectangular shawls (one lace, one entrelac), 2 triangular shawls (both lace), 3 hats, 2 pairs of fingerless gloves, and a bunch of face cloths (I discovered that it's not a good idea to work on complicated knitting while taking serious pain meds)
- Watched other people unpack boxes in my house while I directed where things should go, which places they generally didn't go into, and now I have only a vague idea of where anything is around here
- Went on a knitting cruise to Alaska (more to follow in a later post)
- Re-read the Lymond books by Dorothy Dunnet

I know that none of these things constitute good excuses for not blogging, but taken together they do explain it. There was also the minor detail that for a while I could not get up the stairs to the computer, and when I could I was not able to sit there for more than a couple of minutes at a stretch.

I have pictures and more details on some of the items above, and will be uploading them soon and posting more.

For now, though, I just wanted to break the ice and get back into posting again.
