Last Tuesday, we arrived in Portland to finalize everything here and put up our house for sale.
As soon as we got off the highway and before we even arrived at the house I said to my husband: “Drop me off at the yarnshop!”
He wasn’t even surprised. He too knows that my real home in Portland was my precious yarn shop Closeknit on Alberta Street.
Still a little bit of me in the shop!
It was so good to see my friends Jenni and Sharon at the shop as soon as I walked in, and it felt so good to be surrounded by gorgeous colorful skeins of yarn! All the vibrant colors made me so happy!
I was also happy to see that some of my creations were still present at the shop and so beautifully displayed:
It was as if I had never left.
Packing and really leaving
It is funny how packing and moving out of our house, coincides with me moving from this blog to my website.
In the tangible world, I am packing our stuff into boxes and know that I will unpack and arrange everything neatly in our new house.
Moving from this blog to my new website is exactly the same. My web developer is importing all my old blog post to my new website, and once all those old blog posts arrive there, I have to rearrange and make everything tidy.
That is a lot of work, but all so worth it. Also we are fine tuning at the moment and really getting into details!
Needless to say that I am very busy at the moment… No time for knitting.
We plan to leave Portland for good coming Tuesday. I shed no tears for selling the house.
I shed tears for leaving my dear friends and yarnshop Closeknit behind…
Thanks for reading and until the next entry.
