A postcard without pictures from Brighton...

Hello from Brighton's Jubilee Library! The move went well; I'm settled in the flat and finding my way round Brighton. It's very odd not having internet access and it's made me realise how much I depend on the net for everyday things (weather, news, shopping, blog reading) as well as for keeping in touch with friends. I can't upload photos from this computer - I've been keeping up with Project 365 and will post a couple of weeks of pics as soon as I can.


Project 365 - July 15

July 15 - neat and well-organised, eh? You should see the rest of the flat....

I won't be blogging again this week, but I'll still be taking photos every day and plan to upload a week's worth at a time over the next few months. Thanks to everyone who sent and posted encouraging emails and comments; keep in touch!


Project 365 - July 11

July 11 - I'd forgotten about this photo until I was sorting through a box of stuff that came out of an old filing cabinet. I get the costumes, but can't make out why the girls are striking rather threatening poses. Are they just about to start some complicated tap dance routine? Any other ideas?

I'm sick of packing/chucking out/more packing; but the end is almost in sight! I'm moving to Brighton next Wednesday, July 18. If any London bloggers/non-bloggers fancy joining me for a farewell knit, I'll be hanging out at Stash Yarns this Saturday.


Off and on the needles

The Colinette shawl is finished. I can't block it because I've packed both blocking wires and box of pins, but I'm very pleased with it. I worked a round of single crochet (double crochet in the UK) to stabilise the edge before working the picot edging from the pattern. It's such a nice, undemanding knit that I've cast on another one, this time using the recommended yarn, Blue Sky Alpaca's Alpaca Silk.

The colour is lovely - it's a soft, steel grey which is less blue in real life - and the yarn's very nice to knit with on Addi Lace needles.
