I was here first – just remember that!

Oh, dear – The Yarn Harlot has started her Catkin. Now it will go viral, and when I knit mine everybody will think that I am leaping on the passing bandwagon. Ah, well… should have spun faster!

I confess, the spinning has not been happening since I acknowledged that it could not be done in time for the Show. Skipping spinning group is not helping the situation — though I have to say that my spirit and my energy are both much improved for taking this radical step. Perhaps this weekend’s Open Studio will give me an opportunity to get some more singles made. I do  hope so.

Anyway – just remember that, for once, WOOL | gathered was there first and that I had the project queued on the day that the pattern was released.

Watch this space – we spot the cool trends first. Oh, yes. Super-cool and trendy, that’s us. LOL

PS was hunting for buttons for the Catkin while I was in town today. Not an easy thing to do when one hasn’t even spun the yarn yet and one has no inkling of what the finished shawl will look like.  Shows I haven’t lost commitment to the project, though!

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

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
