Yarn-along - Endless arrow edtion

As I like to on a Wednesday I'm knitting and reading along with Ginny from Small Things. Pop over to her blog to see what she's up to this week.


This is my week in:



Knitting: I'm finishing my second Follow Your Arrow and doing Clue B which is the knitted on border. I have not done this kind of border before, so it's interesting to do something different. I am surprised how long its taking me. Before this each clue has taken between one and three days, this one I'm not half way through and it's day four. I keep reminding myself to enjoy the process and that, if I wasn't knitting this, I would just be knitting something else and that there is no hurry, but I do keep having to remind myself of these things.

Reading: I'm still reading, and enjoying Wool. Normally when I'm enjoying a book I can't put it down, but this one I'm reading one fairly short chapter at a time.

Listening:  I started the fourth Discworld novel, Mort. This is the last Discworld novel that I remember clearly from reading it on paper, and I'm enjoying revisiting it very much.

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.
