NaBloPoMo 15

Oh dear. I have absolutely nothing to say!

The weekend is a blank. I’ve cooked a fair bit and messed around with Facebook. That’s it. Nothing of interest whatsoever.

The stove still isn’t in – but we do have an algae-free back yard.

Um.

No.

Sorry.

There just isn’t anything at all.

Is this a NaBloPoMo Fail? or does waffling on about nothing actually count as a post?

I want to watch Dr Who. Is it up on the iPlayer yet?

Oooh – just thought of something worth saying!

The Winter Twist Collective went up today. This is what I want make for myself:

Kelmscott by Carol Sunday

I’d also like to make this, but cannot see myself wearing it

Skara Brae (seems predestined!) by Stephanie van der Linden (of the Laetitia socks)

and then, there is this – I’ve been after a nice Chullo pattern but have to admit that colourwork isn’t really my “thing”. It would be a large challenge for me.

Polar Bears!
Polar Bears!

Which is your favourite pattern from this edition? Leave a comment – I’m tired of talking to myself!

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.

Van Nessa : Her Leak

Home from Melle, we set about cleaning the van in preparation for going out again. At the moment we are hoping to go out for at least one night every week in continuing efforts to break the cats in (or down!) Mr Snail was cleaning the bathroom. Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak

    Like you I love Klemscott. I also want to learn double knitting so maybe I’ll do the hat that accompanies the tutorial.

      Good luck to you!

      I have very little taste for knitting methods that slow me down – I like to romp to the end of a project while I am still enthusiastic about it – for me, double knitting would be a slow and painful death. A bit of a shame really, because a double knitted hat would be just the thing in Orkney (doesn’t mean to say I’m going to try it though!)

      The general principle means that I avoid fair isle* as well, although I have a sneaking desire to attempt some twined knitting. The one place that I will not be going is the knit-one-sock-inside-another arena – which is practically the same as double knitting, I think – except not actually (intentionally at least) joined together.

      * “One day” I shall learn Continental and the art of knitting with one colour in each hand and then I may be better disposed to colour work.

    Surely you don’t mean that? Think of all the chocolate you could eat! 🙂

      With or without beads?

      It’s an interesting construction…

    I can’t wait to learn double knitting and make the four winds hat for my husband the orienteer.

    I am glad I found your blog.
