Ferry Blankie update

There has been little mention of the ferry blankie project recently – most likely because there has been little progress. There have however been plenty of generous donations! I am hoping that I have kept track of them all and said my thank you’s where they are due.

I added one square to the blankie at Spinning today; made with some yarn that arrived from “Muoriska” in Finland just this very morning, the clear turquoise colour was just exactly what was needed at that point.

There are now ten squares in the blankie itself and six foundation squares waiting to be joined in. I have begun an Excel map of the squares, in which to keep notes of what yarn formed which square – and this should be a useful aide memoire when I come to do the full documentation. It seems a little early for another photograph – very litle has changed.

Casey has been busy coding over at Ravelry and I can now share the blankie project with non-Ravelers.

It is the socks that have robbed the blankie of progress time. I have been sock-knitting with a vengeance. I have one Twisted and one Tribute completed and the second Twisted is about halfway down the leg. Yes. This is a very perverted way of acquiring further blanket squares.

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

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
