Boredom threshold achieved

Sometimes I marvel at my immaturity. Can I really be bored with this project already? Perhaps it is just because I am over tired but, whatever it is, I want this scarf finished now and to move on to something else. It seems to be moving really slowly all of a sudden. 11.5 pattern repeats done and somewhere between 65% and 70% complete. I think I’d like to have a final push and see this off today.

What’s next? First things first – I need to complete the Cash and Burn socks, which have stalled since the discovery of a dropped stitch… three and a half inches ago. I need to rescue that stitch and then polish the toe off before I allow myself another cast on. That will take discipline, with all this cashmere sitting looking at me.

And that last sentence tells me that I shall be moving on to another cashmere project, which probably means some kind of scarf or wrap again – as there is insufficient of any one colour for anything larger than that. I’d quite like to pick up a pair of fancy socks, though. Have I time to complete a pair in time for the Show?

How large a wrap can I make from 100 grams of cashmere? That’s about 1,400 yards if I use it single – though I think I’d opt for doubling it.

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
