Project Updates

It is taking me longer than I thought to rebuild my list of “blogs to read” since switching computers. So naturally I lost a fair amount of time this evening catching up on what a few of you are doing.


The second sleeves have it. I did not have the patience tonight to start which means that it is not going to happen till this weekend as I am off to another conference tomorrow evening. Doing the sleeve facing on the train is just more than I want to tackle.


As I mentioned, the first Wyvern is done.


and the detail looks like this


Since the second sock is past the toe and on the foot, the minimum I should be able to do is finish it up on the trip. I am also taking along one of the Chamelon Colorworks socks as well as the most recent BMFA I have since cuffed socks are kind of cute. Five socks in two days is out of the question, but at least I will have choices.


Just a little more accomplished on the Indigo Singles.


Audio Books

Partway through disk 7 of Fluke, heard all four of McNally’s Bluff. Finished Orchid Blues and started Orchid Blood in the studio. That leaves me with Short Straw (also Stuart Woods) on the last player I heard most of the first part and realized that I have either read it or heard it before. I really need to start archiving things better!

I am contemplating queuing a couple of JD Robbs. This only leaves me out of paperbacks for the train trip. Go figure.

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!

    I swear time must do different things in Germany. You manage to get so much done!

    Your red sock looks fantastic.

    Spinning looks lovely! I adore the way that colour spins up.

    I’m on the second sleeve of the kauni as well. I swear it is taking far longer to knit than the first sleeve.

    I hope you have a good trip.
