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!

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

Recently, at the: Crooked House

Thanks!

Thanks!

It’s a reasonable day today and thus we have the back doors standing open. This means that Chloé can come and go as she pleases (she refuses to use the cat flaps and expects us to give her ingress and egress via the sitting room window). 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

    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.
