Knitting News!

Finally…. finally. The knitting box has been unearthed and those two socks that were waiting for heels were lifted out.

The interesting news is that one of the socks was much further on than I recalled and is actually already galloping towards the toe. It must have been waiting for Mr L to try it on for fit. My sock however was indeed awaiting a heel, which it now has. I will pick up the gusset stitches later, hopefully tomorrow, as the light here and now is dreadful (and my eyes seem to deteriorate by the day, alas).

I should be more than ready to knit my way into Spain.

Light too poor for illustrative photography at this time but i will try to take a snap tomorrow. I may use it to test out the new connection that I set up betwixt Instagram and this blog. “All” that I have to remember to do is to log into the correct account…

Made some headway on packing the van today. The bed is made up and I have started stocking the food cupboard with dried and tinned goods. Mr L has packed the boot tidily.

I have failed to find a space for my camera gear but will apply myself to that conundrum tomorrow once we return home from shopping.

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
