Just a little more yarn

Nowhere else, except for the government, is this the start of a new year. Fiscally, all the money dries up on 30 Sept so that 1 Oct is normally funded through continuing resolutions and other devises to make sure that payroll is met. Only the government….

At work, it was relatively quite, most of my staff is out at meetings or otherwise engaged in completing whatever tasks are left from last year while planning this year’s priorities. The massive construction on A6 continues, costing me somewhere between 5 to 35 minutes each way.


You haven’t heard much about Kauni from me recently. The bad news is that I have not yet pulled the cardigan out of it’s bag since I returned from China. The good news is that Annette got the following in for me:


the EL has shades of dark blue, purple and forest green while the ES has shades of denim from dark to light. I have about 340 gm of each. Rather than knit against each other, I am planning on each being the contrast yarn against some hand spun. I have several choices, which I will post probably next week and ask your opinion.

Everyone is gone, but for the dog and I. She enjoyed her day visiting at work and might like a repeat 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!
