It may seem far too early to be thinking about Christmas gifts, but as I am making them all this year, I'm a little worried I'm starting too late! I have been quite happily knitting in my lunch hour, or while watching Pointless before dinner or any other spare five minutes really. Unfortunately these are … Continue reading Reading lists, knitting and Christmas approaches!
Today is the second chilly day that makes me think Autumn is really approaching. And once again, I have forgotten to knit myself the big fluffy chunky knit blanket I have been promising myself since I learnt how to knit. But it's ok, I have a big snuggly jumper (shop bought alas) to snuggle down … Continue reading Blankets and books
