Shopping, shopping, shopping

Bumper post today:

  • 2 swap postcards from Swap-Bot swap
  • 2 separate packages of cotton fabric remnants via eBay
  • Package from Get Knitted including
  • Glove pattern
  • 2 balls Opal Uni for Mr L’s fingerless gloves
  • suede soles for my Mama Janes
  • an extra ball of Opal, because it is gorgeous colours and because I am weak and greedy.

The organisers tells us that tonight will be easier than last night. Oh, yes?

I need to do some knitting today. I’m getting behind on my targets and I need to free up my 2.5mm circular for Mr L’s glubs.

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
