And… relax

Colourmart Comp: over

Annual Show: been and gone

Commission: completed

Test knitting: up to date

Suddenly I feel like my underwear is missing or something. There are no requirements. My time is my own. No deadlines, self-imposed or otherwise. It feels weird. Like skinny-dipping; oddly light and free, quite enjoyable, but definitely strange.

What’s next then? Yes, I would dearly love to cast on, but I am not going to. The remainder of August is designated for UFO-bashing. And  perhaps for Things Other Than Knitting. I may spin a little, or weave some. I might play with paper and ink. I could dye some yarn, or make some felt. I would like to spend some time out on my two feet, with my camera in my hand.

In short, the creative world is my oyster for a while.

No. Wait. That is, my oyster unless we begin to cast our minds to the end of the month and the Craft Fair. B*gg*r. I had forgotten about that!

Anyway – next up for completion, the second Twisted sock, which was left at the gusset and which I have reviewed, found myself at a loss to explain the remaining number of stitches, and am frogging back to the heel flap in order to put right. Mr L never did get these socks for his April trip. Nor even for the June one. He’s going to Manc again in September – and this time I promise that he shall have cosy toes. All that I have to do is to get the correct number of stitches set first…

Wish me luck!

Nature is red in tooth and claw and nobody knows this better than a person that shares their life with cats… At 4 am today there was a thud, followed closely by another thud, and another. It sounded curiously like a rather fat cat pouncing on something. “Has Dusty brought some prey in?” The Crooked Man went to investigate. Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
