Getting on

The wind died down today and the sun made a valiant effort to show its face. Mr L took Nell outside and inflated the last of her footballs. They had fun while I tried to grab some decent FO shots of the Bitterroot.

What shots I got were not very good but I put them on the Haiti draw post anyway.

Today was a relaxed affair. Dinner came from the depths of the freezer (home made spicy lamb burgers – we had them with cous cous and a tomato sauce) so I have done little other than knit.

The Haruni has worked its way up to 485 stitches now. I’m still on straight needles but may have to transfer to a circular soon. 22 rows to go.

I’ve cast on for a Gail as well. My hands were cramping on the Haruni – the Gail is on fatter needles and with sock yarn. A respite project. I have 2 of 7 repeats done on that one.

That is all. It’s a long way past my bed time.

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
