Truly Scrumptious

Tigerlilith/Old Maiden Aunt was destashing yarn in order to help Ysolda destash her boots. I saw this on Twitter, and wondered if there was anything that I might assist her with.

There was.

And it is Scrumptious.

Truly Scrumptious.

Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace

It arrived last Wednesday and I am thrilled with it, as I have long wanted to try this yarn – 45% silk/55% merino and 1000 metres to 100g. Now I have two skeins, in one of my favourite colour combinations, and at a price saving. How lucky am I?

The colour is a little bleached by the flash – in reality it is a sightly deeper combination of amethysts-to-lavendar-grey. I have the perfect beads to go with this…

Earmarked for a lace shawl project that I have lined up.

It is all that I can do not to wind this off and cast on right now.

I do hope that Lilith likes her new boots as much as I like my yarn.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

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

Apparently Aragon has locked down travel today. Seems we made the correct decision in getting back to France quickly. Yesterday was tough but we seem to be moving on again without resting. The Aire was not very lovely and the noise incessant. Half Term effect is in full throttle. As well as children being alarming,… Continue reading October 27, 2020 at 12:32PM
