Slowly…

My long 2mm DPNs arrived today and I transferred the doyley onto them and then managed a couple of rounds of knitting. 44 rows completed and 13.22% done.

The long needles are very unwieldy. They will take some getting used to.

Also in today’s post:  a large ball of size 30 white crochet cotton and 250g of merino/cashmere/silk from Colourmart. The yarn is beautifully warm and soft. It’s 2/28 NM again. Destined for a wonderful shawl I do believe, it is a very pale brownish shade, called Fossil. I can’t really liken it to anything, so shall have to refer to it as an extremely pale stone shade, or like a very weak and extremely milky coffee.

E came round to spin last night and I fitted in about 3 hours. Almost half done now on the blue roving.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

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
