Speeding Along

      No Comments on Speeding Along

I had a really good night of knitting and chatting last night, and a bit of knitting today, and suddenly my first sock is almost five inches long. I checked my leg length on my last pair of socks, and it was all of 4.5 inches. I should probably move on to the heel flap soon before it gets too… Read more »

Not Exactly My Forte

First things first — I finished my socks last night, as I thought I would. I think I am going to debut them tomorrow, as they would look grand over a pair of black leggings. Secondly, as my cool-down project, I decided I would finish the poor mouse that has been languishing on my desk for… well, quite some time… Read more »

Nearly, but Not Quite!

Looking at the ball of wool, and looking at the first sock, I think I can safely say that they’re not going to end up near identical. I’m fine with that though, more than fine with it. I’m pretty sure I’ve said it any number of times, but one of the joys of variegated wools (to me) is the little… Read more »

Другой День, Другой Доллар

Or, in English — ‘Another day, another dollar’. That is never more true than on the first working day of the month. A new month means doing year end accounts for anything ending the previous month, and those need to be done as fast as possible. There’s only three from May, and I’ve got two of them pretty much turned… Read more »

Let’s Go All the Way

I continue to feel optimistic that I am going to end up with mainly matching socks somehow. I’m not fussed if I do, but I feel like it earns me ninja points or something, ha ha. If I were truly fussed about that sort of thing, I could have acquired two 50g skeins and tried to match starting points… but… Read more »

Natural Light!

Eurovision time, just about! Smallhausen and I went to the train station to pick up our friend Jezebelle. I was oddly nervous about making the trip as I had never driven that way on my own, but it was fine. I had a laugh ’cause I second-guessed which way I was going and went the wrong way at one point,… Read more »

Progress in Motion

Today, the glorious racket outside continued as the BT Openreach team continued to get the cabinet on our street installed and upgraded. I’m not exactly sure what they were doing, but it required them digging up part of the road (again). They were repaving it when I went to get Littler from school, and on the way back. I smiled… Read more »

A Cavalcade of Colour

I have been most grateful today that I have not had to go anywhere or do much of anything. I got Littler to take a nap, I got some work done that the office needed doing, and basically managed to not catch on fire, ha ha. I feel mainly human-shaped for going out tonight, so yay for that as well…. Read more »

Lunar

The pattern I am working for this pair of socks is called Solar. The socks shown on the pattern are a gorgeous bright variegated orange. So of course, my Chroma starts off purple and blue, looking more like the night rather than the day. It’s currently working towards light blue, green, and then springy greens and yellows, so. It should… Read more »

A Lovely Evening

      No Comments on A Lovely Evening

It could have been a drama-filled one, but instead it was nice. Someone was being especially dramatic about everything, but as they fecked off to another part of the pub altogether, it didn’t bother me none. It did bother some of the other members, who were only just having to raise that said person was a bit of a fussy… Read more »
