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.


I think that the size could be easily adapted…

Lovely colours - and I have earrings to match!

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

We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Seeing some sensational autumn colours on this drive but finding it hard to capture what with all the bouncing, twisting and turning. Not to mention the crappy IG camera facility. #livereportingfromtheroad #france #autumn2020
