Works in (something approaching) Progress

I was determined to do a WIP Wednesday post today, having been so disorganised and neglectful of late. Unfortunately, there was a back-twanging incident this morning and I am now a little hobbled. We are left with but a cursory post again, sad to say.

  1. The commission knitting continues to trouble me. It makes but slow progress and I am convinced that I shall be short of yarn for the pink scarf. The most intelligent move would be to frog it and knit a narrower one, but I keep on going in the hope that my yarn will magically extend itself to the necessary length.
  2. There is still a second scarf to knit, in time to be posted for Christmas. Help!
  3. Spinning of the extra Ashford sliver is all but complete. Despite the twang, I managed to sit on an upright chair this morning and spin, most of the remaining fibre. Plying will be a little more difficult.
  4. The Simmer Dim is not technically a WIP today. I completed the knitting. It was much admired at Spinning this morning. Blocking is not going to happen any time soon now. We shall have to wait for my back to unknit itself.

I promise to try harder next week.

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
