Thorfinn sees the light of day

An entirely unexpected opportunity to go to Kirkwall today has seen me unearth my simple sock project, Thorfinn – established for just such an event.

I am all dressed up and ready to go and … resenting the time away from my Vibrotis, because I can see I am on the downward run with that now. Just 4 patten repeats to go in the body and I am into the decreases. I love it. Really love it. It looks fantastic.

Maybe I will complete the Clapotis tonight. No, I will be far too tired, I think!

I am taking my pocket camera with me. This will be my first opportunity to wander around town without pressure and I hope to find the place looking quaintly festive. I’ll check out the yarn shop, but am holding out little hope of finding temptation there, to be honest. I might get a long 2.5mm circ to try the toe-up socks with, though, as the kit needles I have have very stiff and springy cables and I didn’t like using them at all.

I’ll be home again in about nine hours…

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
