Today

Much pain today at the base of my left thumb, from yesterday’s spinning. I shall ignore it and push on until I have three empty bobbins for Friday.

The sun has temporarily deserted us and it is a grey morning – I am worrying that I shan’t have enough light for tinking that heel. I had planned to do it in the garden for maximum illumination – the combination of tiny stitches and dark yarn is very taxing on my far-too-old glasses.

I am hoping that postie brings needles today. If I can’t tink my heel then I shall be able to cast on Rivendells on my new needles. Otherwise, I think it is going to be the Pomatomus socks today. I intend to slack on the lunch today again and we are going to have a very simple egg curry from yesterday’s fresh free range eggs. I have some kalonji rice in the freezer, so I don’t even have to steam rice. I may even (tsk!) get my curry sauce from a jar – but we  shall have to see about that.

One thing I do want to do today is to try the freeform lace knitting out. I’m just very inspired to do something with it for the PS3 “Air” ATC swap and want to firm some ideas up soon. I shall use some yarn from the cone of pale grey alpaca that I got from Colormart, and my new 2mm rosewood sox stix 🙂 I may even sort some beads out to play with…

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

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
