Moving on

After winding all that 2/28 yarn I disappeared into a deep hot bath with a long drink and a spouse. Then knitted on ‘is sock in bed for a while. I am about to begin the toe shaping. It makes progress but does not enthral me. This however, does. Isn’t it gorgeous?

Woken by Nell at 4am, I had to go out on the dark with a migraine. Humph! Slept it off a bit after that, but it’s hanging around in the background now. The first thing I did when I crawled from my pit was to skein my yarn. I got 340 yards in the first skein (64 gms) so am on course for 530 yards total. It’s very pretty and I am pleased with it, though my plying is nowhere near as good or as consistent as I thought it was when I was doing it! We need better lighting in the cottage. It’s a must!

The rotary cutters arrived today but there is still no sign of the needles. I am about to chase those.

Today is for feeling sorry for myself, investigating the fibrecrafts parcel from yesterday, and perhaps for beginning a Morning Surf – though I may wait for a brighter day to make my yarn selections for that as harmonising them is critical to success (I still fret about the navy blue in the Tumult of Waves version.) I might even ply the remainder of my yarn.

I have  a mass of paperwork to attend to, too (I hear you, Gill!)

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

On our way again. Not far to go and no check in until 2pm so a late and lazy start to our day. I have been watching eagles. Not sure what we are going to be doing for the next few days. We want to take Nell to a vet and the outcome of that… Continue reading October 18, 2020 at 01:22PM
