Kalamity

So.

There I was, just sitting here, Laeticia sock in hands, thinking that I might have bitten off a teensy bit more than I can chew in offering to complete the sock by tomorrow. With a positive turn of mind, I had just decided that it was doable. Then my mind got to wandering, and thinking that it was time to do the review of the Kollage Square Needles. Having got this far (halfway through the instep chart) without calamity, we could safely assume that the first pair were just a rogue. It was at this point exactly that I heard a faint “ting”…

as one end fell off and struck my footrest between my feet.

That review? It’s not going to be a good one, is it?

So, um, yes… we have a slight delay in Laeticia manufacture, while we wait for the superglue to set. I shall make the most of it and drink coffee.

And I think we’ll say “Wednesday” for the sock FO post, don’t you?

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

We just met our first Spanish self service fuel, there has always been an attendant whenever we have fueled up on previous visits. The machine took the card, asked which pump (!?), what fuel, and how much. It chucked the ticket out, said something in Spanish, and then failed to provide any diesel. We are… Continue reading October 21, 2020 at 11:21AM

      @Heather Cawte, Yup. I think we have to assume “design flaw” at this stage. That’s 2 pairs/3 ends over the progress of just under 2 pairs of socks. It’s not me – I’m not rough with them. I’ve been very extra specially careful since the first point dropped off.
