Well, the fleeces have arrived at Spinderella's. Completely by coincidence, Spinderella has lowered their processing prices a bit and expanded their volume discount to cover the entire order, rather than just individual lots over a certain size. While none of my individual lots exceeded the minimum for the discount, the whole order certainly did. That was quite a nice surprise.
The stash is now living in a series of cardboard boxes. Tomorrow it gets loaded on a truck and sent off to my new home in Washington state. The drive to join my stash will take about five days of drive-time, plus I'll spend a day or two in Chicago visiting family before I go. I have two socks, a scarf and my Kiri shawl (which has another hole in it) as my travel knitting. I expect that I might get some knitting done while I watch the movers load the truck too. I really wish I had someone to drive me across the country just so that I could knit all day each of those five days. Oh well.... I do have a nice supply of books on tape to keep me company and that will just have to suffice.
