July Projects:

I never used to make a list, just started on whatever felt right. Then bumped things on the needles for something more fun or interesting. As a result, I had a lot of orphan socks and UFOs.

Since spending more time being organized has resulted in completed and useful things, and belonging to a number of KALs – I now have a list every month

1. Kauni Cardigan. This is my number one project. I have the yarn as of 2 July.
2. Sockapalooza4 – finish up so that I can mail them off prior to leaving for China
3. Firebird – June BMFA SOM. I love the colorway and the pattern is the most interesting yet for me.
4. Sockmania – Serpentine July Sock
5. Drops sock – March Madness for July
6. SKL – Florenz – Juli Muster
7. Chameleon SOM – July Pattern
8. (doesn’t really count since doing any of the socks means I have met the goal in the Sock-a-Month KAL)


The Chain Links are done. 60 stitches on 2,5 mm needles. Yarn is Monarch from Angora Valley.

The yarn is wound. Now on to gauge swatches. Since it is light grey on the one, and burgundy on the other, that is where I am starting.

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!

    Do you realise how weird your slugs are? Well, compared to Aussie slugs anyway! I will have to try and get a picture of one for you to compare.
