As with everything else in life, knitting goes best with what my old mother called a “little application“. Application is a relative of elbow grease, I think. Anyway, it was counted a virtue when I was a child… and application did not come easily to a flighty an interested mind.

Well, times have changed – the meaning of the term application has shifted somewhat and I also now have an Android smartphone, a Nexus. I am slowly being persuaded of its utility, via the Apps. Now I want to be utterly convinced – by installing the killer knitting app.

May I have your recommendations, please, for both Knitting and Spinning apps for the Android o/s. I’m thinking nothing too complex – let’s not reinvent Ravelry – but one stable place in which to record progress on all my projects and in particular on pattern progress through charts. Just a funky Row and Stitch Counter, I’d guess – but I know nothing at this stage and want very much to hear what you have to offer.

In fact, don’t confine yourselves to fibre apps – I’d love to know what I really need to install on my phone, other than Candy Crush Saga.

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

We just met our first Spanish self service fuel, there has always been an attendant whenever we have fueled up on previous visits. The machine took the card, asked which pump (!?), what fuel, and how much. It chucked the ticket out, said something in Spanish, and then failed to provide any diesel. We are… Continue reading October 21, 2020 at 11:21AM
