just a few purrs

the couple of hours spent at Avenue Yarns for the Sunday morning open knitting was lovely. I had to re-cast on Strider (a Martina Beam pattern I have already knit a couple of times but falls into the lovely category of mindless garter stitch)

then there was the cat check.

obviously, you need another picture of a cat –

getting his well earned (!) scratches. In reality, I am not sure that Boo was being all that sociable. Rather, he was trying to lure me into feeding him Greenies. Failing that, it is his thing to try and sucker an unsuspecting person into belly rubs. Not a good idea, and I am not that stupid. Teeth and claws are so not my idea of a good time.

After getting home, I finished the latest portion of LolaCrow’s Greenhouse of Oddities – the green roots and the flower being new additions.

and Part 3 of TemptingTangles Dream is now underway.

when I finish this segment, I will head back to the beginning and complete the backstitching and flourishes…

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!

    One well-cared-for cat. Scritch his chin hello for me.
