FO: Teardrop head scarf

One less FO to share this week than I had planned, though I do think that the Twisted socks will be completed later today. This FO has already been shared this week and the full pattern details have already posted under the Teardrop Stole – so only brief details and a couple of photographs today.

Sob, sob, sobbin' FO

This project differs from the stole only in the overall size, and also the needle size used – I wanted a denser fabric for this.

  • Cast on Date: 7 August, 2010
  • Cast on: Long tail onto 2 needles
  • Needles: 3.25mm
  • Stitches: 35
  • Pattern Repeats: 3 across, 14 down
  • Blocked: Yes
  • Finished Size: Didn’t have time to measure it before posting it off
  • Cast Off: lace on 4mm needle
  • Cast Off Date:11 August, 2010
  • Ravelry Project: Sob, sob, sobbin’
A less airy fabric than the stole

It was a bit of a rush to get this done. I stopped at 14 repeats and would have wished to squeeze a couple more in, to allow for a secure double knot or a fetching bow…

Just big enough to do the job

…but I confess myself pleased  enough. It is a lovely thing and I may even make one for myself – my hair often needs anchoring  in the Orkney wind in order to stop me from chewing on it by accident.

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

Apparently Aragon has locked down travel today. Seems we made the correct decision in getting back to France quickly. Yesterday was tough but we seem to be moving on again without resting. The Aire was not very lovely and the noise incessant. Half Term effect is in full throttle. As well as children being alarming,… Continue reading October 27, 2020 at 12:32PM
