Field Duty – calm before the storm

June 1st, 2007


We are in our last days of doing paperwork before switching to 24 hour operations. What is my role? Whatever the unit needs me to do. I am perfectly capable of taking over night shift and knitting all night, but probably will be on days.


 Since this was the first of the month, I pulled the new pattern for 6 Socks Knit along – called Victorian Lace. I have already picked out some Sea Socks yarn from Fleece Artist and will start them hopefully later today once the Fire on the Mountain are finished.
This is Fleece Artist in color way Angel. The pattern is going to be Victorian Lace by Lorri Ann Romesberg.

    I definately could not live in such conditions. My own bunk bed or no!

    Those socks are a great colour.

    Oh, the memories you are bringing back! I found your blog via the SAM KAL. It’s been a long time, but I spent one summer in Graf in the 90s. Several of us had come up from Vicenza to help the Graf unit with some tasks.

    I wish I had knit back then, it would have make the open bay more tolerable. I was the only female in our bay, and the guys were not refined roommates, of course. I spent a lot of time sitting outside with a book, leading to that particular nasal condition of “GrafenSnot” from all the dust the tanks would kick up.

    I hope your field duty & deployment goes well and you stay fully stocked with nice yarn! Your socks look great.

    Thanks everyone for the positive feed back on the socks!

    For better or worse, all the billeting at Graf is now divided by rank & gender. No dealing with the guys for the women. Crude comments have been replaced by overhearing even stupidier private cell phone conversations.

    My group is really tolerant. And being with a HQ, we are going to stay clean and bored.

    Hallo HOlly,

    die Fire on the mountain socks sind wunderwunderschön. Es ist eine so tolle Färbung, die bei Dir genauso fantastisch mustert.

    lieben Gruß an Dich
