Load 'em up...Move 'em out

It's 10F outside this morning and that's with the sun shining on the thermometer. Brrrr....it's COLD. Today is moving day for the college DD. Somehow she's taking back more than she brought home for winter break.

Do you see Mr. Bettis inspecting the packing?








I have no idea where the last 5 weeks went but they flew. We had a lot of fun over that break; Family game nights, cooking, knitting, baking and of course the holidays.
Her dad's famous saying when loading up the kids (when they were younger) was 'load 'em up, move 'em out'. So here we go.....








I couldn't leave without posting a WIP. I've been wanting another pair of handknit gloves so when I missplaced mine I cast on for these.
Why is it when you're desperate for a handknitted item you can whip it out in no time? The first glove was knit in a day and I plan to finish the second one in the car today.
BTW: I found the original pair of gloves so now I'll have two pair :D. One happy knitter here.

VERY cute gloves. Mr B is just worried she's taking something of his, right?

Safe travels...

Isn't that how it works? You lose something, knit up another, and then you find the lost item. Love the new gloves, though! : ) Be careful ( and warm ) taking DD back to school!

Very nice glove. Wow, she is sure taking a lot back with her! I loaded my niece up with her birthday present early since I knew she would need them. Thermal jammies and a down vest. We have to keep them warm.

Happy moving... good job Inspector B (although I think he's just making sure she's not leaving with anything that belongs to him, lol)! Love those gloves!

I'm glad you had a good time over the winter break! Your new glove is cute as can be. The striping is so fun! Glad you found your lost pair, as well. Never too many gloves!

Lovely gloves. And of course Mr. B is inspecting. It's his job.

And now that you found the first pair, my bet is somebody else claims them.....

it goes by too fast doesn't it? sigh

I'm with Chan, Mr. B was just making sure none of his belongings got in there by mistake. LOL

Love the gloves!
