So, what's next?

A bit of lace knitting I suspect!

There are absolutely horrendous problems associated with moving into our new school building and stress levels are the highest we've seen since, oh let's see, since we packed up our old school! I don't want to say too much about it because folk can get into the muck neck-deep by going into such details on their blogs but this too will pass. Hopefully sooner rather than later, pleeeaaaase!

So, I'm taking my mind off it by shopping the stash for some unlabelled hand-painted mohair yarn. I'm not sure of the exact composition, but it feels very like the Colinette mohair, which is 78% mohair, 13% wool, 9% nylon. A little bit of balling and simple lace do a buddy good.

If you know me in real life and know where I work, please don't comment, "ah yes, that East Utopia Council are always like that" etc. :-)

I could've sworn you worked for West Utopia Council!
Anyway, hope things settle down soon.
The colours in your yarn look lovely.

Hope school gets organized quickly and that stress is gone!

I love that yarn, it's a giant furball! The colors are gorgeous, too

Lovely shades in the mohair - it looks great knitted up. In Dr Who, Utopia turns out to be a bleak desolate place at the end of the universe (am I close? lol)

Oh nightmare Kathleen - being at the HQ end of supporting people like you struggling with new schools you have my deepest and fullest sympathies. In the words of the "late" Tony - things can only get better !

The knitting's lovely despite the stress :0)

Hope the move is going more smoothly for you now and that it will all be worth it because you are moving in to a spiffy newly fitted out school with all the mod cons. If not - well I can only commiserate.
