One step beyond

Though there are folded boxes all over our apartment the whole moving thing didn't feel "real" until today. You want to know why? 'Cause we went out and bought a washer, a dryer and a fridge all at once!

These are the first appliances ever we had to buy on the north-american continent since our apartments so far came with a fridge and stove and the washer/dryer in the basement and I feel a little bit giddy. After all, it's no little amount of money one can spend on necessary items like that. Good thing VĂ©ronik made me check the consumer reports, otherwise we would have been left quite clueless in the appliance-jungle out there. We got the Whirlpool duet washer and dryer (both frontloaders), and also a Whirlpool fridge. All of them did very well in the reports, let's just hope it wasn't because they bribed the editors (that's my husband's sense of humour talking here...).

Let the felting adventures begin! I can't wait to try it and with my own washer no one will keep me from doing so.

I fear I won't have a lot of knitting news in the following weeks but will keep rambling on about moving and what's involved. Maybe that turns out to be interesting as well??

When we moved we had to buy a stove, a fridge, and a dishwasher, and we bought the first two at a used appliance place. They have been perfect. The third, we bought a very well-reviewed dishwasher brand new, and it is the only thing that has broken since we've been here--a total of no less than three times. So new is not always best...but it sounds like you got good stuff, so hopefully you will have no trouble. This is the only time I've ever said yes to an extended warrantee and I can say it was worth it.
