WIP WEDNESDAY: 22nd June

Time to get back into the swing, I think.

Glad to say that things are happening and productivity is up. I’m sadly lacking on the UFO Reduction Plan, but let us simply gloss over that… and we’ll get back to it before too long.

Blue Blob

Currently active on the needles:

  • Super Secret Socks. 1 done, the other is in the early leg stage, but I plan to have it finished by the weekend.
  • Joshaqan socks – my June effort for the Silk Road Socks KAL. 2 of 3 leg repeats done on the first sock
  • Flambe shawl in Machair 400 in Making Mischief. 5 of 9 body repeats completed

I confess that I am knitting all three in a fairly disorganised concurrency. I simply pick up what I feel like working on, and I knit a bit until I require a change of scenery.

No so active:

  • The whirly red thing. This is driving me demented. I’ll return to it when the Blue Blob is complete

Currently active on the wheels

  • Zwartbles on the Trad. Active? Maybe not.
  • Merino pencil roving on the Traveller. Made heaps of progress on this today at Spinning and really surprised myself by that.

I am spinning it too fine. May have to make a 3 ply yarn.

Nothing on the looms at present.

Will have to return to Kirkwall this week. Tomorrow would be best but I expect that I shall go on Friday instead. I’ll take the Super Secret Socks with me this time.

So, what are you up to this WIP Wednesday? Show us what  you’ve got.

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

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

On our way again. Not far to go and no check in until 2pm so a late and lazy start to our day. I have been watching eagles. Not sure what we are going to be doing for the next few days. We want to take Nell to a vet and the outcome of that… Continue reading October 18, 2020 at 01:22PM
