Wipping, wipping, wipping

Things to see!

1 – Mood Socks in progress, 50% done – which means one whole sock to see.

I’m pleased with this and looking forward to having a pair done but I have something else that I need to be doing for the next few days.

2 – One Ruffled Shawl, a WIP in name only, as I have some final finishing to do. Here it is on the blocking mats

Far more pleased with this than I ever expected to be. More details on Friday.

3 – a new project. I’m allowed this one as it is a test knit and a prior committment. Oh, yes – I know an escape clause when I see one.

This is Romi’s Asterope shawl. I am testing the written instructions for the large size. Yarn is from 100Purewool.com and is a Merino laceweight. Looks more subtle than in this photo. Charts A, B and C completed. D and E to go, plus a crochet cast off.

4 – some weaving I was working on at Spinning Group this morning

Just a scarf – using Sirdar YoYo as warp and weft.

That’s your lot for today — I need to get back to my Asterope.

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
