Essential Supplies

I am packing.  My house, that is, not firearms.  There are boxes all over the place, and the house is in disarray.  I have to sort as I pack, because I'm not only going to a smaller place but also it will only be temporary (I hope) until my house sells and I can buy a house in Invercargill.  This means that many things will stay in boxes in the garage, so it's important to work out what will be essential supplies for the next 6 months. 

As I sorted through the storage area under the stairs (which has taken me much of today -ahem!  No prizes for guessing it was rather a mess), I found a box containing yarn that I had completely forgotten about.  At the time I packed this (in 2008), I was not really knitting with this sort of yarn, though I was clearly entranced enough to buy them. 

The red/purple yarn and the blue/turquoise one on the left of the photo are silk noil.  The blue/green/purple skein at the rear is rayon boucle. I'm not sure what the balls at the front are, they just look like fine wool, but I recall that I bought them to knit with the boucle in some way, as they have the same colours.

Naturally, they shall go into a box labelled "Essential Supplies".

I have lots of boxes labelled 'essential supplies'. Too many, my husband would say ;)

Good luck with your packing! We had to move just over 2 years ago, and it was so hard. We did move into a smaller home, but I love it! Smaller is better sometimes. You can appreciate what you do have.
