And, thanks to my chauffeur-driven Budget Truck, there was knitting:

OhmyGawd! I'm here!

I'm really here!

I was welcomed to the city by Ms. Yarnish who, along with her husband Eric, willingly volunteered their Sunday afternoon to help Sven and me unload the moving truck. And they rocked it pretty hard. Jackie was ferrying carts up and down the freight elevator like a pro, and Eric and Sven did some kind of space-whisperer thing in my storage locker to get everything inside neatly.

The move went incredibly smoothly, thanks in a large part to Jackie and Eric's willingness to help. Seriously, I emailed that woman a week or so ago to ask if she had an hour or two to spare, and I had an enthusiastic response to that email in about an hour. How's about that for a warm welcome? I'm not sure how we would have done it without their help. Thanks guys!

So, I'm as settled as I'm going to be for the next couple of months. Do I feel like a New Yorker yet? Good question. Let me think about that while I eat my bagel. And if only that car alarm that's been going off for the past hour underneath my window would STOP, I could eat in peace...

 

Welcome!!! And I'm not tooo far away in NJ if you ever need some yarn connections out here.

How exciting! I love the new routine that moving affords one, enjoy those days of waking up in a new place and then remembering, "Oh, I live her now!"

Glad to hear you made it safely! :)

Isn't it interesting that car alarms actually don't rouse attention at all, except for people going "STFU!" No criticism meant, obviously, I just enjoy the irony. Congratulations on a smooth move. Good luck!

Wow, I haven't visited your blog for a while and what I see!! congratulations, I hope now we will eb able to meet as I really like NY and it is closer than Boston. Yupee!

Car alarm...welcome to NY;-)

Glad things went smoothly!

Welcome to NY!! You're just in time for the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn this weekend.

You really will get so you don't hear the noise, I promise. You do have to be careful that you don't start talking really loudly to be heard over the noise, even when you are in a quiet place! Happy new home.

yay you're moved! enjoy getting settled in. when do you start work?

Oh, you'll get used to the car alarms. Seriously, I don't even hear them anymore...
Congrats on a successful move!

Hi Colleen,
Glad to hear all went well! So jealous, I have always wanted to live in New York! I can't wait to start hearing about the sites!

Welcome to NYC! How great to have friends who will help you move here already!

Welcome to New York! :)

Congrats on making it safe and sound. Hope you enjoy your new home town.

Glad to read the move went smoothly and you got in some interstate knitting!

Welcome to NY! I don't live in the city, but I love to take the train down and knit on the way when I visit.

Thanks for bringing us along on your move. Just think how easy it would have been if we all could have helped carry the boxes.
I've never been to Boston or New York City so I enjoy your sharing very much.
Happy new home to you, enjoy.

*Applause* congrats on a speedy move...good luck and I'm just across the river when you're ready for new knitting buddies. When does the new job start?

This may have been noted in previous comments, but "Subway Knitter" is a much better name for a New York blog than a Boston blog. So I think your move has been foreordained for a while.

Welcome to NYC.

Welcome and congratulations! I'm so impressed that you are blogging while in the middle of moving... and knitting!

congrats on the move.
i'm very glad to hear that it went smoothly.

good luck!

What type of work do you do? Lucky you to move to the Big Apple.

welcome. good luck. congrats. you'll get used to the alarms, the summer smells, and everything else. ;)

Congrats on the move! Glad that it went so well!

Welcome to NY, where in the city do you live? I'm on Long Island.

Aww, well, we Boston Knitters have to stick together, you know? I'm glad we could help. :)
