Progress

There are days where progress is measured in millimeters. Other times where there are large patches to prove that things are changing.

Such as in the bathroom, with the return on the mason and tile man today. The back wall has been filled in, cement on the floor to level some areas. More dirt and dust tracked in, but I have given up worry about white dust for the present.

Clear progress. The first sock is done except for a couple of threads, and the second is down to the toe.

A little bit of finishing and we will be all set. Because of going on leave at the beginning of August, plus the mailing lag to the states, I am mailing early. With the contents wrapped up and labeled – don’t open till……

Kauni

Five rows frogged and the inside facing is ready to be bound off with the sleeve. I will write it up tomorrow, along with a decent set of pictures. It is just too late tonight, and I am not getting decent lighting.

Now, If I can just identify the berries hanging out on this bush.

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!

    They look like a sort of laurel berry. I can’t remember what exactly, but we had bushes like that when I was a child and they were very poisonous.

    I adore your colour choice for your Kauni and it’s coming along so quickly too.

    You mentioned that you wanted to see photos of my Kauni so far (not nearly as far along as yours), they are up on my blog now.
