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!

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

Oh, deer

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

    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.
