The Tuesday Poem was rudely interrupted...

Mademoiselle Rouge departed for Spain last night. It's her first solo trip overseas. The first trip was a school exchange visit to Japan - very different from going to Spain by yourself and planning to walk 100 kilometres of the Camino de Santiago, not to mention couch surfing. It was all too stressful to think of poetry - although that might have calmed me down! But I was busy completing these:

Fingerless mitts to keep her hands warm. A good pattern from Ravelry - sized so you can make it for most gauges and for most sized hands. I shall be making more of these!  The yarn is Colinette Jitterbug sock  yarn. I bought a grab bag of odd yardages from the Colinette mill shop - not enough for socks, but plenty long enough for mitts.

When you've admired these and before you whisk out your double-sided needles to make your own, hop on over to the Tuesday Poem blog where you can read three intriguing poems from a debut verse novel, Bird Murder,  by Stephanie Lash, brought to you this week by Helen Rickerby. When you've put your order in for your own copy of Bird Murder, check out the sidebar for other Tuesday poems.

Walking the Camino de Santiago...ah, it's on my ever-expanding bucket list.
