This is our last day of preparation, and the exercise goes hot tonight. I figure to be getting enough sleep, unless one of the controllers is completely off the wall and decides to start something stupid in the middle of the night. But my ability to get out to a computer with picture uploading ability will be restricted. From here I am making a commissary run for the group, never can have too many liquid caffeine and other legal drinkables available.
Interesting website, followed by the strange. I don’t often post such things, but there are a couple of places to visit. There is the Thread Banger site with the Top 10 Geek knitting projects. More importantly, there is Socks for Soldiers if you are looking for a way to combine knitting and support of deployed troops.
First – Rib on the Side – the first cuff is done. It doesn’t look like much when it is flat, but it is quite expandable. Now I just have to pick up on the one side for the heel and carry on. And if my brains had been in the right place, I would have calculated the length of the cuff and shorted it by 14 stitches as I don’t like really long cuffs on my socks.
And then there is the Broken Rib sock I started when it was too dark to work on the other sock. Somethings can be knit with little to no light.
I forgot the dyer of this lovely wool/mohair/nylon blend. I will post it tomorrow.
Trading in the last five audio books, I picked up six more from the Graf library today. It should take me only a couple of days to save them. This is much faster than requesting them from the Landstuhl Library, and waiting what seems a life time for the next book in a series.
Even though there is an after hours drop, the audio CD cases don’t fit through the slot in the right hand drop off.
I’ll update the reading list tomorrow.
And thanks for the comments and well wishes. Field duty for me is more fun than the rest of the team, but I am not under deployment pressure like the rest of the crew.
