my Visa is here! / mein Visum ist da!

This is awesome news! One huge point of concern is off my shoulders: On Saturday I received my Visa documents in the mail.

Großartige Neuigkeiten! Eine riesige Sorge ist endlich runter von meinen Schultern: Am Samstag kamen meine Visumsdokumente mit der Post.

And I wasn't even home to see it right away, I was visiting my parents and seeing my best friends from school for a last evening of girly chatter together. I checked all over my computer but couldn't find a picture of us, neither old nor recent... too many computer crashes, I guess.

Und ich war nicht einmal da, um sie gleich zu sehen, ich habe am Wochende meine Eltern und meine Schulfreundinnen besucht. Ein letzter Mädelsabend mit ordentlich Geschnatter. Ich hab überall auf meinem Rechner gesucht, aber keine Photos gefunden, weder alte noch neuere... wahrscheinlich ist mein Computer einfach zu oft böse gecrasht.

Wooden Rose Baby Cardigan

The date of our final departure from Germany seems to be way too soon. With so much left to do -> anyone looking for used furniture in the Hamburg area? Drop me a line, we have pretty much everything...

I still hope to keep posting regularly, I'll just use less words and more pictures. This is the Cardigan I finished as a gift for a new baby.

Sorry for being so lazy, but please see my Ravelry project page for details.
In case you were wondering, my other project are creeping along slowly but I need to keep crocheting to stay sane these days!

And now, head on over to these ladies:

A Classic Baby Cardigan... and some big news

You'll have to read to the end for the big news, I'm afraid...

I can't believe it: Again I'm forced to put my WIPs aside for a cute little personal handmade new baby gift! What a shame... ;-)

I was NOT going to make another hat, sooooo boring after a while. I love making baby blankets, but the little girl is already here, so I compromised for a cardigan!

(The pattern is Lisa van Klaren's Classic Baby Cardigan)
I just love the softness that ensues when using a 4mm hook on fingering weight yarn! It'll be perfect for a baby.

I'm also still working on the striped skirt. Can't wait to wear it!

AND: The knitted scarf is coming along, too. And I think I can see fewer and fewer mistakes in the more recently knitted rows...

And now for the big news: We are currently preparing for our biggest move yet. We'll be leaving the cold of Germany for Raleigh, North Carolina! So all these projects are actually just to keep me sane during the completely insane process of getting my visa...
But by now it's almost completed and my husband has finally been able to tell his boss, so it's not secret anymore as this topic used to be. What a relief!

And now, head on over to Kristine's and see what everyone else is doing!
