The end is in sight


There are three rows left to go on the commissioned socks. I find myself filled with excitement. I can feel the weight lifting from my shoulders. What shall I do next?

After a little rest for my hands, and to do all that birthday cooking, I think I shall earmark Sunday to complete the Flukra shawl, because I cannot wait to see what that looks like when it is done -  and it has hibernated for far too long.

After that? Who knows. I may start making some hexapuffs… (somebody stop me – quickly!) or I quite fancy romping to a finish on the Pi blanket – despite the fact that I still have not decided on border and edging patterns for it! I fully accept that it may simply be the weather speaking to me on that one. It may also be something of a giveaway that I have polyfill on order – I’d say the odds are in favour of hexagon knitting

Most of all, I want to spin. To spin and spin and spin, and fully familiarise myself with Morgana. Not to mention decreasing the fleece stash a little. I need the space in my workroom back.

Mr L is taking leave from the middle of next week until the New Year. My routine will be disrupted. Who knows what I shall get up to, or be prevented from doing. It’s all a wonderful mystery just now. I am hoping for some photo weather and some long walks. We shall have to see what transpires. No plans are yet in force for picnic lunch on the 25th, other than outline ones for some seasonally-flavoured sausage rolls.

While I was knitting away on these socks, I was watching the iPlayer. I will watch almost anything while I knit, and it was thus that I staggered into that strange other-world dimension that is  the Hairy Bikers. I am so glad that I did not watch the Sweet  Tooth programme before I went shopping, or I know what Birthday Pudding would have been. Still, there is always our Wedding Anniversary dinner on New Year’s Eve… Spinning Gill: you are on leftover cleanup duties!

Sorry about the lack of FO posts – I know it is Friday but as you can see, I have been distracted. Not only that, but projects keep going to new homes before I have chance to photograph them!

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. 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
