COAT OF MANY COLOURS

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.

Colours and textures

Coat of many colours

Sleeve detail

Full length

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!

About OneFrenchWord

I was a professional linguist and have been a life-long foodie. I am now lucky enough to be retired and free to roam the beaches around my home at the tip of the Finistère (Brittany, France). Writing is occupying a larger place in my life, with this blog and a children's book in preparation. I shall feel much happier calling myself a writer when I have published a book. And so posts on OneFrenchWord will be published first as an e-book, my ambition being to see a glossy volume on French language and cuisine in print some day. So keep reading, and snap up the book when it appears!
