NaBloPoMo 15

Oh dear. I have absolutely nothing to say!

The weekend is a blank. I’ve cooked a fair bit and messed around with Facebook. That’s it. Nothing of interest whatsoever.

The stove still isn’t in – but we do have an algae-free back yard.

Um.

No.

Sorry.

There just isn’t anything at all.

Is this a NaBloPoMo Fail? or does waffling on about nothing actually count as a post?

I want to watch Dr Who. Is it up on the iPlayer yet?

Oooh – just thought of something worth saying!

The Winter Twist Collective went up today. This is what I want make for myself:

Kelmscott by Carol Sunday

I’d also like to make this, but cannot see myself wearing it

Skara Brae (seems predestined!) by Stephanie van der Linden (of the Laetitia socks)

and then, there is this – I’ve been after a nice Chullo pattern but have to admit that colourwork isn’t really my “thing”. It would be a large challenge for me.

Polar Bears!
Polar Bears!

Which is your favourite pattern from this edition? Leave a comment – I’m tired of talking to myself!

December Reflections 4: Red

Nature is red in tooth and claw and nobody knows this better than a person that shares their life with cats… At 4 am today there was a thud, followed closely by another thud, and another. It sounded curiously like a rather fat cat pouncing on something. “Has Dusty brought some prey in?” The Crooked Man went to investigate. Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle

    Like you I love Klemscott. I also want to learn double knitting so maybe I’ll do the hat that accompanies the tutorial.

      Good luck to you!

      I have very little taste for knitting methods that slow me down – I like to romp to the end of a project while I am still enthusiastic about it – for me, double knitting would be a slow and painful death. A bit of a shame really, because a double knitted hat would be just the thing in Orkney (doesn’t mean to say I’m going to try it though!)

      The general principle means that I avoid fair isle* as well, although I have a sneaking desire to attempt some twined knitting. The one place that I will not be going is the knit-one-sock-inside-another arena – which is practically the same as double knitting, I think – except not actually (intentionally at least) joined together.

      * “One day” I shall learn Continental and the art of knitting with one colour in each hand and then I may be better disposed to colour work.

    Surely you don’t mean that? Think of all the chocolate you could eat! 🙂

      With or without beads?

      It’s an interesting construction…

    I can’t wait to learn double knitting and make the four winds hat for my husband the orienteer.

    I am glad I found your blog.

      Hello, Susan. You are most welcome. Sorry I haven’t been around for a while to give you a warmer greeting
