More blocking

My Dreaming Peacocks Fountain Hat is washed and blocking. I also seized the opportunity to wash the two mohair scarves: The Furry Snake and Aurora – so that’s me all caught up on washing and blocking, though a few ends remain to be sewn in and I still have to sew and felt my Kenaz bag/pouch project.

But I’d like to spend some time playing with paper, really – and dinner will consume a lot of creative time today. I also want to get out with the dogs. There’s a fair chance of a beach walk in a snowstorm today.

But I also want to knit up the Red Hot Sox before the end of this month… (oh, yeah?)

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
