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.

Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
