My PC died today, while I was sitting in front of it, knitting. Just upped and died!

Mingus is making some progress and I now have half of one leg done, a whole pattern repeat. I’m not sure that my handiwork is very good, though I can’t actually see any stitch errors – but as this is the first repeat how would I know what it is meant to look like?

One of the reasons that Mingus hasn’t got very far is that I have been engaged in doily manufacture. Me – a doily! and I foresee an addiction[1], against all expectation. I have needle challenges however so I must put my doily aside now.

Fafner made no progress today, what with one thing and another. And I didn’t get any spinning cake made either, so must get up early tomorrow to get one baked. Spinning is at F’s and we have a couple of guests this week. I cannot decide whether to take knitting or my wheel, or both. No doubt it will be a last minute panic.

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
