FO: Echoes of Eden

Pair of 4ply fingerless mittens for PIF recipient.

Knitted in a lambswool and silk blend in a fabulous turquoise shade incorporating tweedy flecks of green and violet.

I started these in February, by knitting the leaf edging, then put the project away to enable concentration on other more pressing projects. I picked them up again on April 23rd, after completing the Girasole Shawl. They began on magic loop but I was struggling along with a kinky cable and tight stitches. I swapped to two short circulars and they flew together after that. They came in just under the PS4 North wire on the evening of 30th April, bringing the PS4 project completion total up to five. Not a bad haul.

I have a confession to make. These are not a pair, and I shall have to make at least one more. Can you see how stupid I have been? If you can’t, I shan’t tell you. Why not? Because it is completely ridiculous, what I did. Truly.

It’s a nice pattern. I’ll make more of these – maybe to use up the Baby Merino…

Bare Naked

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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

    are the thumbs different, I don’t have my reading glasses on and I’m squinting so I could be wrong?

    • May 5, 2009

      The thumbs are nominally the same, though I think I managed to cast one off more loosely than the other. No, that’s not it…
