Skein not yet washed.


I really am not at all keen on this stuff. I liked it in the batt. But not on the bobbin and certainly not in the skein. The lovely green that I liked so much has all but vanished, and the rich glowing tan has flattened and gone dusty and uninteresting. And I just loathe the sickly banana shade that the yellow but has turned out to be. Worst of all, is the way that the nasty yellow dominates the skein…

So far today I have been unable to find the will to finish the spin. I should do so – then I can be rid of it and on to something more attractive.

But whatever shall I do with it? Give it away? Over-dye it? Bin it? Make a scarf?

The Cash and Burn socks are faring better and the second gusset is completed. I just have to rocket along the foot now, and shape the toe and I am done with them. I am in the mood for a rash of finishing-off efforts. Next? Um. Maybe those damn Grrreen and Grrrowllies. Maybe not.

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

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
