Thorfinn sees the light of day

An entirely unexpected opportunity to go to Kirkwall today has seen me unearth my simple sock project, Thorfinn – established for just such an event.

I am all dressed up and ready to go and … resenting the time away from my Vibrotis, because I can see I am on the downward run with that now. Just 4 patten repeats to go in the body and I am into the decreases. I love it. Really love it. It looks fantastic.

Maybe I will complete the Clapotis tonight. No, I will be far too tired, I think!

I am taking my pocket camera with me. This will be my first opportunity to wander around town without pressure and I hope to find the place looking quaintly festive. I’ll check out the yarn shop, but am holding out little hope of finding temptation there, to be honest. I might get a long 2.5mm circ to try the toe-up socks with, though, as the kit needles I have have very stiff and springy cables and I didn’t like using them at all.

I’ll be home again in about nine hours…

Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak

Deeply disappointed by our early return from the Dordogne and buoyed up by slightly cooler weather we effected our plan to go out “little and often” in an attempt to train the cats for living in the new van.
