Yummy yarn from Natalie. This  is Pentland, a blend of baby camel and silk in laceweight (800m/100g). The colour is named September.

I have cast on with this yarn for The Shetland Trader’s new triangle, Flukra. Flukra is constructed in the same way as the Aestlight (of which I have made a good several so far.) The yarn is behaving impeccably and is going to have a fabulous drape.

I shall not be rushing Flukra, even though there is a KAL for it. I am mindful that my other current Shetland Trader project is in need of finishing.

Anyway… you know what this means, do you not? Yes – the red swirly thing is finis. What a relief! I’m in no hurry to block it and frankly doubt that I could find the time, even if I wanted to. I shall stuff it in the bag with the orange thing that is also waiting to be blocked.

It was Art Class again today and we got messy, with charcoal landscapes. It was rather good fun… I need to practise but it is SUMS Puzzle Hunt week this week. So much to do, so little time.

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

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

Apparently Aragon has locked down travel today. Seems we made the correct decision in getting back to France quickly. Yesterday was tough but we seem to be moving on again without resting. The Aire was not very lovely and the noise incessant. Half Term effect is in full throttle. As well as children being alarming,… Continue reading October 27, 2020 at 12:32PM
