Ravelympics?

A quick look at Ravelry shows that I now have just the one WIP. The BSJ needs a few rows to see it finished – maybe half an hour’s work.

I could cast on a new project.

Or I could sign up for the WIPS wrestling event in the Ravelympics and tackle some of my officially dormant projects. I see seven six five ZZZ projects that are really WIPS-gone-cold. 17 days to WIP-em-off. Hmmm. 1 freeform project (doesn’t count – strike one), about 4.75 socks equivalent, and 2 most-of shawls (well, one isn’t even started, just swatched – strike two), and 1.25 mitts to do.

I think I’ll cast on the second Hamsa scarf, just to keep on the back burner simmering, and I’ll wake up the rainbow swallow tail shawl. Maybe I’ll even knit on Mr L’s socks…

I shan’t sign up for the Ravelympics, but will adhere to the spirit and do my own thing without external requirements being imposed.

It’s good to see the WIP and dormant piles going down – but there’s a lot of failed-start-again-stuff to work on as well, plus a huge stash of sock wool waiting for attention. Oh, and Mr L’s sweater to start on too!

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
