Loopy Takes Over

Two days. Five moving guys. The biggest moving van available (plus overflow into another van – oops!). 14+ tons of yarn and shelves.


Daydreaming about the mountains. And red socks. Always red socks.


Making sure everything is getting stacked in the van just right.


Checking to see if I can hijack the truck myself.


Taking the truck and the yarn and heading off to the mountains – wheeeeeee!!!!

  1. I love your blog today, Sheri! It was fun watching the web cam the last couple of days, too! Wishing you and both your moving vans full of all of your yarny goodness and shelves and furniture, etc, have a great trip, with good weather all the way! Be safe, all of you! Have a good flight! πŸ™‚ Take care!

  2. God speed, Loopy! May you and the yarn arrive safely in CO. Sheri, I’m so excited for you and this new chapter in your life. πŸ™‚

  3. Safe Travels Loopy……….You have a lot to watch over in the next few days and lots of soft smooshy yarn to rest in…………Look forward to seeing you in your new home. Hopefully you will be able to breathe in a few days Sheri…….Happy weekend to you and your home family as well as your MO family and new Loopy family……

  4. Safe travels, Loopy! Glad you have your red socks on to keep your toesies warm as you guard that 14 tons (wowza!) of yarn! See you when you get there!!!!

  5. Loopy is traveling on yarn fumes while the elves & movers do all the work … moving is NOT fun, but it has been fun to “vibe’ you through the process.

  6. Rocky Mountain High!!!! lol I know you must be glad this part of the move is behind you. Can’t wait to come visit Loopy in Fort Collins. πŸ™‚

  7. This says it all:
    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

  8. Argggh! There be yarn pirates on the highways. Best to be on the lookout mate-y!

    ‘Loopy’ the sheep resembles a prized childhood toy my Mum gave me. It has a lamb that snaps to the ewe’s belly!

    Nice yellow truck(s)!

  9. 14+ tons of yarn? I’m going to save this post for when my husband asks, “Don’t you have ENOUGH yarn yet?”

  10. Wow! When you move, you MOVE. Hope Loopy and the yarn have a safe trip to their new home. : )

    Home for the holidays! Let the fun begin!!!

  11. one more time:

    14+ tons of yarn- heckuva lot of yarn involved!

    Hope the move goes well!

    Farewell to the St. Louis Elves- thank you for all you’ve done!

    Just got back from London- bulky knit cowls that wrap 2-3x times around the neck are in, as are knit scarves that do the same with ends that hang to the waist or there abouts. Also- short sleeved sweater dresses worn over tights and long-sleeved tops, with boots- hot, hot, hot! Finally- berets, esp. with cables, and slightly slouchy hats.

  12. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Off to new adventures in the mountains of Colorado! Enjoy the ride and the snow! I am excited and will have to wait to see the new pictures of the Loopy Ewe in the mountains. I am so looking forward to the Monday update December 12!!!! I gotta see whatcha got that is new!

  13. Thanks for the smile this morning! I love those photos! I love the Loopy sheep hanging out checking on everything! I am going to Hawaii next summer but am now thinking I should have stuck with my first plan of going to Colorado!

    I will settle down shortly but I just had to get that part out. lol
    I believe another commenter mentioned their husband asking about how much is enough yarn – mine thought a corner in our living room was enough – so I’ll have to share this post with him also. πŸ™‚
    Best of luck with the move – with Loopy at the helm, you can’t go wrong!
    πŸ™‚ Be safe – enjoy the views – and we’ll catch you on the other side.

  15. OMG it really is happening!!! A tear for the past, a squee for the future!!!!!
    Best of luck, hope to see you in the fall!

  16. Wow. I know you guys have a ton of yarn, but that just puts in a fantasy perspective… like I wish I had 14 tons of yarn in my house… (we’ll ignore that there probably wouldn’t be space for people in that case).

  17. Dear Sheri
    Do the truck drivers knit???? IF THEY DO, IT WILL TAKE A LONG TIME FOR YOU TO GET TO COLORADO. When are you coming to Canada???? This is where the knitters are.
    The very best to you.
    your favorite Canadian customer
    Mary Ann

  18. Sheri:
    You left us without an address !!!
    Much luck in your new digs. I’m sure you’ll love Colorado.
    Best wishes,
