I need to knit

I’m missing my needles. I hope pup settles down soon and allows me time to knit. I’ve been hankering after some Yarn Yard yarn tonight and I really want to clear my stash a bit soon… I love to knit. It soothes me and makes me happy. I miss it.

I gave my Cat’s Paw Scarf to my MiL for her birthday, so I need to knit myself a scarf before the winter bites too hard. I still have loads of the Cashsoft 4ply left – plus the grey BFL. I don’t want to do Cat’s Paw again, though. I’ll do a different Shetland lace pattern this time. But which one?

I didn’t fill my bobbin yesterday but I did finish the first bag of BFL and began the second. Getting there by degrees. I am impatient to see it plyed.

Then there is the crochet challenge to be met. One day…. one day, I’ll get to grips with this craft. For now, it drives me crazy.

I’m trying to get a daylight “true colour” lamp – in the hope that I can make progress on some projects during the darkness of winter. My cottage windows are very small indeed and we live in permanent gloom through the winter, with totally inadequate lighting. I am reliant on Mr L’s sniping abilities to snatch me an eBay bargain soon.

It’s a reasonable day today and thus we have the back doors standing open.

We were taking a coffee break in between sorting out the van, when we heard a strange Chloé-type noise. I did not like it. I wondered if she hadContinue readingThanks!

It has been a busy day, not much time for anything. We walked the dog this morning but I took no photographs until I decided to take a few potshots in the village on our way back.

Seems to me that making plans is a complete waste of time! Once again the weather gods have a different set of plans to our own but hey, ho, we are happy to go where the wind blows… or the tide drifts, or whatever. More like where the wind doesn’t blow, though. The weather gods… Continue reading Aft agley

Tonight’s view from the van is of olive groves and cloud. We have decided to spend only one night here and will move on to Olvera tomorrow. Dusty came for a walk with us this afternoon, there is a track that runs straight from the campsite into the National Park. Very nice and he walked well, until the rain started and he asked to go back into his carrier! #wp #spain #cats #Dusty
