This week has been busy. Productive, yes; interesting, yes; fun, a bit; but mainly busy. The fun definitely arrived with the new cassette player and I can see this becoming one of my favourite Etsy purchases. The Joan Baez cassette was so familiar on first listening that I’m convinced it must have been in my original collection, though I can’t specifically recall owning it.
I’m up to three pens inked as I filled the Diplomat Traveller midweek with Graf von Faber-Castell Moss Green in preparation for December. I expected to run out of Burgundy Royale in the Lamy LX during the week, but it’s still going strong. Once I’ve used it up and flushed out the pen ready to fill with Honey Blaze, I’ll decide which other pen I will pop Burgundy Royale into for the rest of the month.
And now, knitting content! Wonders will never cease – Pamalisonknits has been knitting! I think I’ve raised my prevarication game to new heights over this Christmas gift knit, lurching back and forth over the knife-edge between carrying on and abandoning it, but I’ve finally accepted that I won’t know if I’m confident about the size unless I finish it. Of course, as soon as I thought that and actually re-started the front, I remembered how quickly it knits up. If I apply myself, it shouldn’t take more than another couple of weekends to finish the project, which just leaves the size to worry about.
Now I reckon there’s time to put in a few more rows before I have to seriously think about the mess in the kitchen.
