So of course, having said I’d keep a weather blog, I forgot yesterday. Well it was dismal and cloudy, but not cold (when I went out late afternoon, it was 22°, and looked like we would have a thunderstorm (which we didn’t). But when I went out onto the terrace at one in the morning to see which of my neighbours was making all the noise, I got my feet wet. It was raining gently. Today it’s the same type of weather, not very bright, not very cold, but not raining yet. Oops, it just started. I think from now on, if I remember, I’ll put a line at the top of the blog entry with weather essentials.
During the summer, I used up a lot of my stash knitting myself Jane Thornley‘s “Breeze” shrug, which turned out much larger than hers, a real sort of coat/jacket size. It is extremely flashy, and I haven’t worn it yet, mainly because it has been too hot. I am a member of Jane’s Ravelry group and her Inspired Knitting Club, where she tries to, and succeeds in, getting people to knit more spontaneously, without real patterns, to make it up as you go along. The results are interesting, and certainly liberating. My latest creation was much admired by the group anyway!
