Follow your Arrow week two


I decided to match clue 2A with my 1B, and 2B with my 1A, which would keep all the lace on one shawl and all the asymmetry on the other. Yesterday I took the train to Warrnambool and back, which gave me ample time to knit these clues. And also to take photos on the classy red train seats.
 
I found the lace for 2A really really boring - which didn't stop me stuffing it up the first time, and needing to rip, rip rip.
 
I like the idea of the garter wedges for 2B, but I'm not sure about how they actually look. I keep on telling myself to trust the process, that Ysolda knows what she's doing, that she wouldn't make us all knit Frankenstein's monster shawls, that she's not sitting there, in a castle in Scotland, rubbing her hands together and laughing evilly. Although perhaps she is... 
 
Deep breaths. The only way to find out whether these will look goods in the end is too keep knitting. And if they don't I can always gift them to someone I don't like very much, right?

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!


Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.
