Evenstar 2:1

The second instalment of Evenstar was released at 6pm last night. There is one chart of 34 rounds, worked over 280 stitches – so there are 4 setup rows, with the stitches first being doubled to 288, then reduced to 280. I executed the setup rows, then set the work aside until today. Am currently on the 15th round of the chart.

Clearly there is no necessary rush to complete the chart, with the next instalment being two weeks away. I plan to give it a rest now and have an early night. I think that I would like to finish this chart tomorrow, though. I don’t need to spin it out – there is plenty else for me to be doing. I’m not one for bitting and bobbing, despite appearances to the contrary! So, I’ll prioritise the completion of this chart and then either return to Jessie Lambdin, or resurrect the white project (I believe that charts will be out by tomorrow.)

Whatever I choose to do, it needs to be non-taxing as I am feeling well under par at present. Fortunately, the Evenstar chart is remarkably non-taxing! It has been an easy trot through the last 14 rounds, with minimum tinking – and that only due to husband-static 😉

That is not to say that progress has been trouble-free. There have been struggles with the needles. I do now finally appear to have those sorted, by dint of experimentation with right and left hands and changes of cables.

There will be photos soon, perhaps tomorrow but more likely on Monday.

Now, the big question is: halfway through the chart – lifeline? or leave it until the end?

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. 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

    I’m probably too late to say this – but lifeline definitely! 🙂

      Well, I would, if I thought that I could summon enough energy. It feels like just too much effort right now. I think I am in a decline 🙂

      Are you home now?
