Acting Posh

Now, there’s nowt much posh about us, as we all know. I’m common as muck, really. ((Which reminds me of a funny tale about a hairy-arsed firefighter of my acquaintance… who thought that I was a posh bird until he found out I had rellies in Ryehill and Havercroft.))  ((What is even funnier is that I grew up believing that they were posh rellies because they lived in semi-detached houses with green fields around and we had a 2 up 2 down back to back in a slum district of a Grim Northern City))

All the same, there has been a little bit of posh in my life recently: The Posh Cowl is finally finished, washed and dried…. and also photographed! No modelled shots, yet – I need a willing victim. (Gill?)

Up close and personal

I’ll write up the pattern, test knit it, and then make it available if anyone is interested.

This cowl used just under one skein of Posh Yarn‘s “Sophia” 4ply cashmere sock yarn – 200 yards, but could be knit shorter, mine is quite a tall cowl. I used 4mm needles.

Lovely colours - and I have earrings to match!

Requires: knitting in the round, knit, purl, k2tog, ssk, lifted increases, sewn cast off.

The Cold Light of Day

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
