Two Hats Escaping

From what I can tell (since I became absolutely horrible about tracking knitting progress back about two years ago) I can count both of these hats finished as of today. Yes, I took the photos on the 27th, but failed to do the little detail work such as weaving in ends or filing on Ravelry so I will count them now.

Besides, this is a sea day on which I am doing what I am going to do on every sea day.

Knit. Nice group getting together in the morning, hanging out in the Haven pool area or lounge or our cabin in the afternoon with either knitting needles or cross-stitch in hand.

Back to the hats – both are knit from Schoppel Crazy Zauberball in the pattern called Exeter. It makes for a wonderful watch cap. Without a whole lot of complicated planning, one never knows how the patterning will turn out. As noted – I like the greys; yellow-green I can live without. Hopefully someone, somewhere, sometime will decide that it would do for jogging where you want to be seen and so not run over.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
