There never seems to be any rhyme or reason why I slip out of the blogging habit. It's not intentional, it just the way life happens sometimes. Other things creep in and take the place of blogging and computer time. Ironically, I've been busy on the creative front, so I should have plenty to show you, but I've rarely picked up my camera to document the process.
I've finished my jumper and I absolutely love it. It fits! It's keeping me warm and snug on these icy days, and I've already cast on for the next one. There won't be pictures of me wearing it - I loathe having my photograph taken, and have no desire for photos of myself here on my blog. On chatting to my sister Gill, she wryly commented: "Well, you could always put a paper bag over your head!"
Other knitting is in progress, mainly for Christmas...slouchy hats, scarves, and so on. I can't give too much away here... just some simple, fast projects. Some of these patterns are perfect, and knit up quickly.
I'm loving this cold icy weather, and the miracle of snow in the far south west in November. It's virtually unheard of...and I'm a sucker for the white stuff. I've been out walking with my boy, who rolls endlessly in the frost. It seems to give him an extra zest for being out and about.
So what else to share? I've just finished this book, and found it hard to put down. I had a couple of late nights reading into the wee small hours. I enjoyed the latest Mike Leigh film, Another Year - more gentle, funny and sad observations on life. I'm listening to this album on repeat. I've loved his music for over twenty five years, and this doesn't disappoint.
