Field Duty – calm before the storm — 5 Comments

  1. Oh, the memories you are bringing back! I found your blog via the SAM KAL. It’s been a long time, but I spent one summer in Graf in the 90s. Several of us had come up from Vicenza to help the Graf unit with some tasks.

    I wish I had knit back then, it would have make the open bay more tolerable. I was the only female in our bay, and the guys were not refined roommates, of course. I spent a lot of time sitting outside with a book, leading to that particular nasal condition of “GrafenSnot” from all the dust the tanks would kick up.

    I hope your field duty & deployment goes well and you stay fully stocked with nice yarn! Your socks look great.

  2. Thanks everyone for the positive feed back on the socks!

    For better or worse, all the billeting at Graf is now divided by rank & gender. No dealing with the guys for the women. Crude comments have been replaced by overhearing even stupidier private cell phone conversations.

    My group is really tolerant. And being with a HQ, we are going to stay clean and bored.


  3. Hallo HOlly,

    die Fire on the mountain socks sind wunderwunderschön. Es ist eine so tolle Färbung, die bei Dir genauso fantastisch mustert.

    lieben Gruß an Dich
