Fo: Moreholeythan

I knocked this scarf up last year as a test for suitability for beginning lace knitters taking part in the All Shawl Together KAL. It made a useful stash buster – well, not so much a bust as a tickle, really – just 40g used.

Almost weightless, so a good hair-coverer

Very repetitive and mindless drop stitch pattern but worth the perseverance for a very wearable accessory. It offers so  much warmth for so little weight – I found that I wore it almost constantly through Christmas and well into January to warm my ailing throat and chest.

I would certainly make another.

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

La Cavalerie. We had been going to stay the night here, there’s both a cheese France Passion (we are in Roquefort country) and a CCP Aire. It’s a lovely little town. However with last night’s warning of tonight’s address from M. Macron… we are covering more ground in expectation of imminent travel restrictions. Just called… Continue reading October 28, 2020 at 12:31PM

Seeing some sensational autumn colours on this drive but finding it hard to capture what with all the bouncing, twisting and turning. Not to mention the crappy IG camera facility. #livereportingfromtheroad #france #autumn2020

    I really love this pattern! I’ve been wanting to tackle lace this summer and I think this might be the right starting place for me. I love the weight of lace but charts are difficult for me b/c of eye problems. I think the repetition of this pattern will be just the trick! Thanks for sharing~
