Post Scriptum?

I can't decide, as you may have guessed from the title.

It does seem a little odd to declare publicly that one is not going to blog any more, and then write something else.  But I am missing this in a quite unexpected way - writing, I mean  - and I am wondering whether to continue.  So I think that I shall just see how this goes.  Maybe there will be more, I don't know.

Things are very quiet here at the moment.  November is not a month that I like very much. The days get shorter so quickly, and it feels as if the year is sliding downhill towards the solstice.  But although we've had a lot of wind and rain, the weather still continues unseasonably mild.  We have not yet had a frost, and that really is unusual for late autumn.

On the knitting front, things have been fairly productive.  There was a cardigan for a friend, this was a relatively quick knit during September; and during October I finished a Thing for Rowan, about which I can say nothing at all.  As always, this is most frustrating. 

I do enjoy being one of the team of Rowan handknitters, very much, and I am actually rather proud of it.  I can't say that I'm secretly proud of it, because these words are rather public, let us not forget.  But from a blogger's point of view, it is definitely not the easiest thing.  

Anyway.  A Thing for Rowan, finished at the end of October.  I shall put that in my list as Thing O, and you may read into that what you will.

Right now I'm finishing a cardigan for my daughter.  I could post a picture, but really - a dark navy sleeve on the needles is not the most interesting of images.
