Green of the Day 17 March 2009

St Patrick’s Day. It had to be done, didn’t it?

Green Sweater Blue Day
A great day for the wearing of the green

This is a sweater that I love. I didn’t knit it myself. It is in fact my first-ever eBay purchase – as in, the first one I ever bought on my own account (Mr L was buying for us both before that). I looked at my account and eBay tell me that I have been a member since 28-Mar-01 (wow, almost an anniversary). So this sweater is 8 year’s old!

It was once a rich, bright emerald green. It’s a cotton aran-knit sweater and came from Ireland. Not only was it my first purchase, but it was the vendor’s first eBay sale.

Over the years, the colour has faded and the sweater has grown and sagged. It’s massively comfortable and ideal for curling up inside on the sofa, with a good book on my knee.

Another shot, with some “North” rocks included:

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

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
