In the Mood

A triumphant final sprint saw the Ruffled Fichu completed late yesterday, and one more tick against the UFO list. Hurrah!

I immediately went in search of yarn with which to make my next Silk Road Socks – Mood. I chose Nyoni in Sea Spray. Unfortunately it turned out to be a tangled skein and I managed little more than casting on and a couple of rows before bedtime. Hence, no WIP Wednesday photographs yesterday.

The Fichu made such good progress as I took it to Spinning yesterday instead of the new weaving that I had planned to do. I warped the loom on Tuesday afternoon and was all set to get stuck in… until the car refused to start. So, the loom stayed home and me and the knitting went out… and there was no P in WIP yesterday at all, as the fichu now counts as an FO.

The new sock is now under way and there will be a WIP report next week. Hopefully there will be weaving progress to report too.

I checked the UFO list for candidates for completion today and have decided to work on the Pi Blanket in between sock knitting. For now, I am in the mood for socks and that is what I shall be knitting.

There were two programmes on the iPlayer today that I would have sat and knitted to this evening. Sadly both were lacking a download link – so I think I shall listen to some music instead.  Glenn Miller would seem to be appropriate.

Oh, I miss our player pianos!

Kirkwall tomorrow – hope the snow is gone by then. Must go and write a list… my life is ruled by lists!

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. 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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
