It is freezing here today but the sun is beautiful. Didn't think it was too bad until I took Josh to preschool but the wind is really bitter. And it doesn't look as if it is going to get any better - the forecast is for snow over the weekend. I hate snow it stops you doing so many things and then freezes and becomes very dangerous. Sorry moan over.
Well the cold also has it's ups, it does mean I get lots of knitting done and don't feel that I should be doing something else such as something in the garden. Mind you knitting has not been terribly productive over the past week. Josh was ill last week and so had to miss two days of preschool which mean't knitting was just done in the evenings. Oh well it happens. Thankfully no one else came down with whatever Josh had and he has happily gone back to preschool today. So this is just a snapshot of what I/we have been doing since I last blogged.
Josh's new jumper which was finished just in time for my dad's birthday on sunday.
A friend asked if I could make a scarf for a friend of her's as a wedding present. So I made an Ishbel shawl by Ysolda Teague in blue (as in the saying 'something borrowed, something blue') .
Both of these were fairly quick makes and easy to do in the evenings.
Hope you are all well and surviving the cold weather. Have a good day.
