Good morning, everyone. It's a cool early morning and, although the sun hasn't risen yet, it promises to stay fine and sunny, whatever happens later on.
Yesterday I was busy and bustling in the morning, getting everything sorted. The afternoon was slower and quieter and the evening was spent stuffing my face!
As I had decided, I had a steak which was beautifully cooked, just the way I like it, slightly pink in the middle but cooked through. Delicious. Mind you, I asked for a 'small' portion of chips and what came made me glad I didn't get a 'normal' portion. Mum had nachos and they looked so very nice, I thin that's what I will have next time.
Dad treated me to some red wine to go with the steak and that was also very good. I was horrified at the cost though. Won't be doing that again in a hurry but it was nice for a treat.
I am getting on with the knitting and about half way through the second shepherd. They're about 8 inches tall, these nativity figures, but there's a lot of knitting as it is DK yarn and size 11 needles so it's a tight and firm 'texture'. I am enjoying it and, at the moment, rather hoping someone else will ask me to make a set for them. I might feel different after seven 'people' plus three sheep and a baby in a manger but we will see.
There are a number of reasons why I'm enjoying this project. It's good to have something to do with my hands of an evening: it stops the food picking and I don't feel guilty at sitting doing 'nothing'. I'm slowly using up my over-large stash of yarn. I know this project will be used and appreciated. Finally, I love knitting and there's a purpose to it.
Today I have no idea what we're doing but, whatever we do, it will be enjoyable, I am sure. I hope you all have a good day too.
