I have taken to wearing tights under my jeans and extra socks too! The only time I venture out is the school run, although Paul and I did sneak out yesterday morning for a hearty cooked breakfast at our favourite American diner!
This feeling is not helping with my aims for 2013 of taking more photos and crafting more, this week especially my mojo seems to have gone into hibernation too.
I have been enjoying reading all your blogs, seeing what you have been making and where in the country has the most snow, I think we have been a bit cheated here in Essex, although I for one am not complaining, as they promised us lots of snow yesterday but it just hasn't arrived. First they said 9am, then 11am, then 3pm but other than a very light dusting there hasn't been any snow to speak of!
I did manage to start on my knitting practice at the beginning of the week with the help of my giveaway win book
I thought I would go right back to basics and find out if I was knitting left handed or right handed and it turns out that I knit right handed, so no more leftie excuses!
I just used a bright chunky yarn to make sure I could see any mistakes, my end stitches seem a bit loose so if any of you knitters out there have any tips then please let me know
I'm looking forward to trying some more of the stitches in the book as it seems to describe well each different technique and I would love to make something with cable stitch. I think I may have found the perfect project, as I didn't want to make something too big like a jumper. I picked up this fab book in the charity shop the other day for £2.50 (before this cold spell) and it has some lovely projects including a bag using cable stitch!
So I have the book, I probably also have some yarn somewhere in my stash I now just need the umph to start knitting!!!
