Two Fine Gentlemen

I took my new camera to town with me on Friday. The plan was to capture some FO shots of my Brandywine Shawl in the sunshine on the ferry. We were blessed with the most fabulous weather, but the photo shoot just didn’t work out.

These two fine gentlemen live over the door of the Town Hall. I had never noticed them before as I usually walk on the other side of the road, right beneath them. As I had the camera with me, I thought I’d put it to use and take a snap of them.

Smartly turned out!

Shopping was as fraught as it ever is, but we did find time to sit down for some lunch. The ferry was extremely busy in both directions РI stuck my ears on and knitted happily on my purple Citron while listening to (variously) JS Bach, Clapton, and Lakm̩.

The Citron is ideal for ferry knitting – those long rows of stocking stitch take minimal attention. The shawl is in its final segment now, and  the final ruched band is almost complete. Somewhere between 60% and 65% done. I am planning a little lace edging at the foot of the extended final frill, and maybe a picot cast off.

Oh, the Brandywine Shawl? I wore it all day and I loved it. It is eminently wearable and that bright pink is so very cheerful – it cuts quite a dash when worn on top of my deep peacock green sweater. Well, let’s just say that you couldn’t miss me in a crowd – Large Colourful Lady comin’ through! 🙂 I am sure FO shots will turn up at some point.

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
