Some times the brain does function

Can I express sufficiently to you how very grateful I am that I had the good sense to send away for Addi Lace needles to knit the Laminaria on?

No, really, this piece of knitting is fun. I am loving it. I can see how different an experience it would have been with the truly pointy sticks, though. A very different story, I’ll be bound.

Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
