. . . is that when our move date gets pushed back I can't knit anything. I am nearly finished with Baby Notre Dame Letterman sweater number 2, and eager to start on the "Golden Dome" hat I have half-designed in my head (see below for details). I was hoping to use either beige or gray yarn for the bottom; however those specific skeins are being used to pad certain fragile objects packed in boxes, stacked in my bedroom. Problem is I don't know which boxes contain which yarn. I didn't think to document which skeins were padding which boxes, because I thought I would be UNPACKING them soon!!! sigh.

So I got an interesting email yesterday:
Date: 10th June, 2010
We're putting together an exhibition celebrating Steelers fan art, homemade creations, and collections. We really enjoyed your Baby Steelers Jacket, where we found, http://www.flickr.com/photos/molliiieee/4441505751/.
Is this jacket available for inclusion in the exhibition this fall (late August 2010 through January 2011) at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University? If so, we can discuss shipment and crediting details.
Looking forward to hearing back from you.

So I'm not allowed to buy yarn at the moment. First, because my husband and I are buying an apartment and I can't justify the extra expense just because "it's so pretty!!!!" Second, I don't want to pack and carry more than I have to. We are on a trajectory to have no food in the house on move day, just so we don't have to carry any extras down to the truck. Even though yarn is light, and makes for nice padding material for fragile things (see below), I figured I should cut back.
