Good morning, everyone.  Wasn't it cold yesterday?  I gather some places further north (which isn't difficult, to be honest) had some snow.  We had frost here and the garden path was like a skating rink for the first part of the day.  Quite treacherous, in fact.  Nasty.
At the moment it's still cold but it's expected to warm up a bit at some point.  We will see.

Yesterday was a quiet, nothing-is-happening kind of day.  I didn't quite fall asleep at times but got jolly close to it.  Well, they do call Sunday a 'day of rest', don't they?

Today I have washing, ironing, housework - all the usual stuff, nothing exciting.  In the evening it's 'Would I Lie To You' which always leaves me helpless with laughter and I want to carry on with a knitting project!  I was wondering about knitting myself some slipper socks, seeing as I wear them out so quickly, but I don't actually have a pattern except for socks made with proper sock yarn.  I was thinking more of chunky or Aran type knitting.  Mind you, I have something I MUST finish before I start anything else so there's no rush.

I might get out the patchwork duvet cover I was in the middle of making before life got complicated.  I'd love to get that done.  I'll see how I feel later.

Well, I'd better get going now.  There's stuff to do and coffee to drink.  Have a good day, one and all.


  1. How about these Joy?

    The pattern is free, I haven't made them yet but the pattern was recommended by a knitter friend. There a others on Ravelry.

  2. I forgot about Ravelry, many thanks. I will take a look.

  3. I love Would I Lie to You so much. That and QI I could watch all day.
    I can't knit to save my life. Intermittently I feel I'd like to make a rag rug having never done so but it never gets past the I wonder stage....

  4. Two of my favourites. A giggle every ten seconds plus the belly laughs from time to time. Fantastic shows.
    You probably could knit, but maybe you wouldn't really enjoy it much. :-)
