Going Loopy

Ever had one of those days when you are just certain that your marbles are well and truly lost?

I need some knitting for the ferry tomorrow. Something very simple that I can work on while chatting, and it needs to be very portable. I decided a little while ago that I would make another Mobius Cowl. I made one back at the beginning of 2010 and I love it.

The pattern requires a long circular needle with 8.0mm points.

Now, here’s the thing – I don’t seem to own such an item. Well, if I do, I cannot find it.  I do have 8mm points in an interchangeable kit that I do not use – the cables are short and very stiff indeed.  I am 100% certain that I would not have knit a mobius on those. Sadly the tips do not fit my KnitPro cables…

Yet I made that scarf already.


What with?

and where the heck is the needle now?

Hang on… Googlemail might come to the rescue.



Yes! I do own a set of 8mm tips!

I bought them from Alison at the end of 2009.

Where are they? I have no projects in the UFO pile on such fat needles and all my interchangeables are now logically and neatly stored in my new cabinet…

ARGH! This is driving me MAD

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
