  1. Bridgewater  still stalled. Will finish tonight
  2. Ripley #2 completed; much better fit
  3. Gill seems happy with Ripley #1 and she looks v good in it
  4. Mingus: no progress

The sock yarn that I ordered from Hejhog arrived this morning. I have no idea if it is lovely or not – will let you know once we see daylight again.

At spinning today I finished plying the 2 ply silk/merino to itself. Then I failed miserably to make progress on the Bridgewater, but I did sew the second Ripley together. I brought the Knitters Loom stand out for a Show and Tell, and left it out by the fireside when the ladies left. I did a little weaving this afternoon. I am extremely pleased with the stand and believe that more weaving will be done than would otherwise have been the case.

We had a jam and cream filled chocolate sponge today 🙂

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
