Yarny Additions

In the post today – a package of yarn scraps from Jenny. These are, as far as she can recall, all Bonny from The Yarn Yard so it was not at all surprising that there was a large intake of breath when the contents spilled out onto the bed. Natalie is a very clever dyer and is notable IMO among indie dyers for her real understanding of colour. These scraps will provide single squares that will form highlights in my blankie.

Also in today’s post, and direct from Natalie, one skein of Toddy in the most amazing colour combination, like Tequila Sunrise. Almost too good for socks, I may have to make a lace triangle of it. There was also a skein of Firth, a 50/50 blend of Merino and Tencel in a heavy laceweight – 800 yards. It’s pink! For somebody who doesn’t care much for pink, I do seem to purchase a lot of pink yarn. They are almost always like this one though, very much on the blue end of pink. Lavender pink? Anyway, it is truly stunning.

No photos yet. It’s a grey day and I can’t get my lamp out, as my table is covered in card-making stuff just now.

I’m off to spinning shortly and am aiming to walk there today. Really feeling in need of some exercise and fresh air in my lungs. If I am going to walk then I need to get a move on, it’s getting late… (ooh, and parcel bloke just arrived! Parcels to unwrap!)

Migraine kept me at home yesterday – I’ll be making another attempt to get to town tomorrow.

The Thorfinn socks are almost finished and will be off the needles today.

Evenstar is a bit of a casualty just now and I’ll speak of that later.

Please excus eme, I want to go and look atmy new carpet tiles. Squeee!!!!

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
