We've gotten some good news today!!! So, I have been contemplating the fact that I may have to drive 1500 miles by myself with my 2, I mean children. Well, Jeremy spoke with the relocation department today and HOORAY!! They will fly all of us out, ship our cars, and give us rentals until our cars get there!!! HOORAY! Oh, and they should be able to get us moved by the end of the month. Yipee!

Now, here's my dilemma...what to do with my yarn? I don't trust my yarn going on the truck, having the movers pack it (like they know what to do with wooly goodness!), so I am thinking of a.) getting a suitcase just for my yarn, or b.) putting it all in the van (in ziplock bags of course) and let it be shipped with the van.
What have other knitter's done when they've moved? I am nervous about moving my stash! Any good ideas??

I've never moved a stash and I don't know how big yours is, but I have put parts of my stash in storage in our garage. I put everything in ziploc bags then put it in those clear plastic storage boxes (letter file size) you can get at Staples, etc. If you did that and then sealed it with packing tape, I think it'd be fine. Good luck with the move!

I've moved many times w/ yarn.. I just keep my yarn in those big plastic bins w/ the snap on lids.. seal the edges w/ packing tape.. (so, they don't come undone somehow in route) and they are fine. AND.. I mean fine as in: International moves across the ocean and still not any problems.

Hope it helps.
