Home Sweet Home

 We are slowly getting our new place in some kind of order. This was the hardest move I've ever taken part in. We moved from a home which had been in my husband's family since 1947. There was so much JUNK there; stuff that I would consider junk but which others of course would consider treasure. It all came with us. I haven't had a chance to knit or crochet, and I've been missing it. Yesterday I picked up my crochet hook for the first time during this whole move and worked up a little swatch.

I had purchased this yarn to knit up a Chalkney Cardigan, but I may in fact make a Habitat Cardigan instead. The two main reasons for the switch are that 1) it seems a lot easier and I haven't had a lot of time for complex work and 2) I have quite a few knit sweaters and only 1 crocheted

My gauge swatch is worked on 19 sts but I can't actually measure it because I'm in the middle of moving and everything is everywhere... I'd say it's probably about 6". It might be time to make a trip to Walmart and pick up a tape measure. (To add to my giant collection, once I find it)
