Returning to my old stomping grounds at the SanAk in München by train yesterday as I mentioned, this is the first of a two day conference.


Besides greeting old friends and looking at the posters, I realize that there is not all that much in the one morning session that I want to attend. (And this is not a knitting meeting, Germans just would not understand or get it).

Did I mention that the yarn I had picked for the eldest’s  sweater just did not look right when sampled?

No, I just told you about the books I got out of the library on a stop between the commissary and realizing that I had to get to the train station now! The train ride was lovely, listening to books and knitting.

In between the train station and the U-Bahn I made a short detour and found some lovely slate blue shetland type yarn.


which I think will look much nicer. I decided to be a little late to lunch in order to cast on.

The day ended with one of those mandatory fun evenings of dinner with several hundred of your best friends in a local restaurant.


Didn’t matter which way you looked – tables and tables of people. Not being a complete fool, I managed to get near the door and scooted out at a reasonable time.

I think it is more of the same in the morning.

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!
