Wordle for January 2010 http://www.wordle.net/

The Evenstar swatches are unpinned. I had not expected that blocking would make the choices more difficult.

The Wings of the Dove throw is well under way, and I have reached the centre panel, but doesn’t look like a fast project. The yarn is like twine, and there is much toing and froing in the pattern notes. I took it to bed last night but found it impossible to handle there. Later today I plan to make my own document to knit from, to try and speed things up. In the meantime, I have much work to do and I plan to actually knuckle down to it.

Pictures of the dry swatches later, if the gloom should lift.

Now I shall leave you,  dear reader, and go tippy-toe round the house. We have a bear with a sore head in residence today. Nell is hiding behind the office cupboard. I can’t quite fit in to the remaining space but if I could, I would. Perhaps the bear will feel better once it has been fed on a haggis lunch?

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
