The DFV is done. 354 yards total. All 3 ply.

What a relief.

I think I’ll knock up that stuff that we bought in Stromness last week for my next project. Something thick and bouncy and really slubby. I might leave it as a single and get a spool of something interesting to ply it to.

No claimers for this nasty stuff yet? Oh, what a surprise! :-}

No spinning today. I am off to be the results service for today’s North Isles Sports.

(I just tried to find an informative link about the Sports – I couldn’t find anything suitable, but was much cheered to find our new baby, sanday.co.uk, came up 7th on the Google ranking – based on our news item about changes to ferry services for today. I must be doing something right on the webmastering front!)

When Mr L is back at work next week I think I may have to have a wash day. I have several skeins to be done, plus a fair bit of blocking to do as well.

I plan to complete my sock today, in between results posts, and move on to knitting this DFV up after the skeins dry. Until then… I’ll work on completing a dormant project or two.

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

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
