Sky and Water II

Sky and Water II is on the way and I have cast on and knit the first pattern repeat. I chose a blue/grey shade this time.

I shall need to complete at least one pattern repeat a day. Judging by today’s performance, that’s aiming high. It’s funny – the first scarf caused me very few problems, but I spent the entire afternoon knitting and tinking, knitting and tinking, over and over again – and managed just the 18 rows overall.

No more for now. I have no sock knitted yet today and have remembered that I should be spinning to free up some bobbins for Wednesday.

Feel like I am wading through mud today. I had a terrible night last night and everything seems to be slightly out of phase and uncoordinated today.

On another note entirely, Copperpot has asked if she may use some of my FO photos to showcase her fibre batts. How flattering!

Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
