On the move to Mongolia

How cool is it that stuff I have knitted here in scenic (don't laugh, it IS called the Garden State) New Jersey should be starting its journey to Mongolia? BB wanted to check out all of the items in the Dulaan stash before they went into the box. Just call her Quality Control.

Above we have Delaware's contribution to the cause, four hats from The Middle Sister. She doesn't knit but is hell on wheels with her round knitting looms! Three kid-sized and one grown-up sized go in the box.
Here is BB on the front porch with my stash - two scarves, two sweaters, two pairs of mittens, and five hats. I keep thinking if I wait to send the package I will get more done, but experience has taught me that more than likely what will happen is that I will mail the package too late and miss this year's boat entirely. So I am about to finish packing it all up.

BB snoozing amidst all the wooly goodness. She will be sad to see these treasures go away, but knows in her little furry heart that they are going where they are needed (and that the way I knit there will always be more for her to play with!)

Still suffering from deadline madness, a broken down van, and the Kid's amazingly hectic dance schedule. Knitting time is sorely lacking, but I am just about to turn the heel of the second CTH sock so the next photo won't have my toes anywhere in it. It may still have the dog butt though...

Wow, so much stuff. I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated by whoever receives it.

I am getting ready to send my Dulaan package from Nova Scotia! I have a scarf to finish, plus I'd like to get two more things finished before I mail the package on Wednesday. I think I will have to send it air mail so it gets there on time!
