Accomplishments of the Week - July 8, 2018

Accomplishment #1

I moved house. On July 1st. In Montreal. In the middle of a heatwave. July 1st is the traditional moving day in Quebec which means that a ridiculous number of people are all trying to move house at the same time.

So far in my 10 years in Montreal I'd managed to avoid taking part in this tradition, but not this move. I've never before had to book a moving company four months in advance or move in at the same time as someone else is still moving out. At one point I think there were about 18 people in the apartment - absolute madness. But we survived, and although there's still quite a lot of unpacking to do, I'm quite enjoying exploring our new neighbourhood.

And I'm looking forward to having my loom in a nice sunny corner with all my houseplants!

Accomplishment #2

I finished my Pizzicato Pinstripe socks and Debbie and I did the photoshoot for the pattern today. The pattern is written and ready to go, so we just need to do the last layout edits and proofread and it will be ready to publish! And I have enough yarn left paired with some other leftovers to make my son a pair of socks, so he's very happy.

I love to travel. And it's been several years since I've been outside of Canada, so this year I was definitely getting itchy feet; I was ready to go on an adventure. Where to? My cousin has been living in Hong Kong for the past couple of years, so when she suggest we come to visit her, I jumped at the chance!

I finished a spinning project! You may remember from this post back in June that I had some singles ready for plying. Well, I got half a bobbin of those done, and then got distracted again by other projects, and then went away on vacation... I finally got back to it when I got home in mid-July, and it took me a couple of spinning sessions, but I've now got a nice plump skein of about 340 yds of sport-ish weight yarn - maybe closer to a light DK.

It seems a little crazy that it was almost a month ago now that my boyfriend and I set out for our summer vacation! We left by train to Halifax at the end of June and spent a very full ten days visiting friends and family, and exploring the province in our trusty little Prius borrowed from Carshare Atlantic. I'm not the best travel photographer, as my tendency is to leave the camera behind in favour of just relaxing and enjoying the moment, but I did manage to remember to snap a few photos here and there!
