Are these not totally wonderful?

Wollmeise: Von Wahrsagern, der weißen Büffelfrau, Fortune Cookies und wirbelnden Teeblättern…….

I don’t know that I would ever wear them, but I so want to knit them, and maybe give them away – and I love the idea of wearing two different colours! Those red ones are fab. I’d like purple on the other hand… Sometimes I wonder if I am not just a wee bit of a Goth at heart…

I stumbled across the pattern on Ravelry when idly contemplating being completely wicked and buying some Posh Yarn this weekend. You see, I really want to own some of this, and pet it for a while, then knit it into something – but it would have to be just the one skein. Isn’t it beautiful?

Yes. I am avoiding The Book. Why do you ask? I’m brain dead with it, OK? I need light relief. And, speaking of light relief, if you haven’t read this yet, then do so now. Just don’t laugh too hard at the poor, suffering woman!

I really am a poor blogger these days, aren’t I? Sorry. The notion that I would keep a Nature Diary here soon fell by the wayside. A pity, that. Perhaps I will try again next year, The thing is, we packed ourselves up and wandered off in the van again and when we came back we were, for various reasons, at a low ebb. Energy has been lacking and especially the mental variety. I amContinue readingHot, hot, hot



Having chosen to live in France, I try hard to live French. I really do not want to be that Brit – the one that moans how they can’t get such-and such in France or that some-other from the UK is better… Certainly, in my humble Brit opinion, there is so much here that is better than back in Blighty. Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan.

    Cool pattern! And now you’ve made me want all of those posh yarns. But that’s never going to happen! You’re dangerous. 🙂

      @beautyredefined, don’t worry, you (we) are not in any danger of buying any. The feeding frenzy at 7pm Sunday will see the shelves bare by 19:00:30

      My internet connection certainly isn’t fast enough to let me swoop in and bag any. I’m content to dream.

    Oooh pretty gloves, I like that Posh to, but the red baby camel one is also gorgeous. I’m on a yarn diet thought until I get back from Skip North and Wonder Wool.
