Socktoberfest 2008

Socktoberfest 2008 was my first Socktoberfest, but it will not be the last. I found it useful to have a supportive community available to help me through those UFOs.

A pair of Mama Janes slippers also came to fruition and the Grreen and Grrowllies made good headway, eventually finishing off just outside the Soctoberfest month, and being finally grafted on the 4th November.

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
