Mama’s got new socks

Oh, the sheer excitement of it. I completed a pair of socks that have been on the needles since Dec 2007! I had half a sock at the beginning of the week and now I have a whole pair, all ready to wear. I’m doing the Happy Dance (new sock variation.)

They do not match, of course. A slight lapse in attention when I was setting up the foot means that my 4+1 rib is centred on the left foot, but not on the right one. Who cares? That part will be inside my shoe.

Strike one from the UFO-bashing list.

According to the list, the next item for bashing is the Colours Squared Shawl. So now my sock is grafted, I’m away to find out where I hid my UFO.

I did walk to spinning this morning. It wasn’t very nice but wasn’t too bad either. By the time that we finished spinning the day was really rather gorgeous, but I took a lift home.

Spotted my first daffs, all ready to burst forth – these are at How farm.

Almost there

As I walked up the drive on the way home I was jacket-less. That’s how nice it was.

Very pleased when I arrived home to find my food parcel had been delivered. It had lots of liquorice in it. Snacks for me. Yum.

Right, where is that shawl? Better knit on it while  I have some free time – I am told that we are taking floor boards up soon.

Oh, the UPS blew up while I was gone. Whatever are the cats going to do without it? Right now, Teddy is on the printer and Treacle is in a filing basket. They both seem put out about the lack of heat.

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

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
