Great Copy

So here I am, back from Europe instead of on the Navigator of the Seas. I have time on my hands and a real need to keep busy. Digging through my pattern stash, I find Great Copy #830 – The New York Style Pullover.

Great Copy #830

Humm – comes in XS to XXL. Ok that about covers the world. And only six pieces (including the pocket). Its all fleece. No lining, no interfacing, nothing fancy. And off I go to JoAnns to find that there is a great sale on Polar Fleece of all kinds.

On the spot I decide that just about everyone needs one. Well, the ones with a sense of humor anyway. I find hedgehogs for me, a blue for Shana, the obvious for Maus and Dani picks something quiet for herself. Since this is oversized, I can essentially whip off four the same. Less than $18.00 later (oh, I just love discount coupons and sales I had enough fabric for five tops) and headed back out the door and home to have fun!

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!
