FO Friday

The “FO” in today’s post does not stand for “Finished Object”…

In fact, although I had a veritable plethora of FOs lined up for today’s post –  the week, our house guest and the virus have combined in overtaking me. All I want to do now is to go  back to bed, so… FO, Friday! I really cannot be bothered with you.

I am sorry but honestly, right now I could not rally the interest to even look for my camera, let alone to take beauty shots of finished objects.

I shall see you next week – – by which time I hope very much not to be coughing and that I shall have photographs of hats, shawl, buttons, skeins, pebbles and more to show.

As I failed to find any finished objects, how about having a Follow Friday instead? Go and read Kate – who is inspirational in oh-so-very-many-ways. She’s far more interesting, accomplished and beautiful than me too — so why were you here in the first place eh? Go on, shoo!

PS: Activity this week has been confined to washing and blocking (of a sort) and to knitting blanket squares. A late rally saw a Morning Surf scarf project unearthed from hibernation as a change to the “mindless knitting” scenery. (I love my blankie but too many squares at once can send a girl a bit batty.) I did manage to weave a couple of scarf inches and fill a bobbin of singles too, so not an entirely idle week – just very close to it.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
