Bandwagon Dreams

I had a dream about this beret [Kate Gagnon's Selbu Modern] earlier this week. I blame knitblogland and flickr and ravelry. Onto the bandwagon I jump! just a start [flickr] I pondered.

With the upcoming cross-country move, DH and I are both cleaning out our stuff and splitting things into groups of storage, temporary housing, and necessary-during-the-move-itself.
