Good morning, everyone. The dark mornings seem very chilly now although there's no frost so they can't be that bad. Maybe I'm just turning soft!
The Aran jacked/cardigan I am knitting is coming along well although my size decision will mean it will be a 'target' garment for now (but not for long, I sincerely hope). I've decided to adapt the pattern somewhat and add a collar instead of the hoodie. I think it will be more useful like that; I do already have a few hooded tops and don't really need another one. Apart from that, given that it is Aran yarn, I will look like the Hunchback of Notre-Dame when wearing a coat.
I will have loads of yarn left over, a disadvantage of not using the set yarn as well as changing the pattern, so I am thinking of making a hat and some mittens (NOT gloves) and maybe even a scarf. I actually don't have a warm hat so it would be very useful in this cold weather that is supposed to be arriving this winter although I will believe that one when it happens and not before.
Today is a sort of 'free' morning and then I am off to school to help out in Foundation Stage. Yes, I finally got the times sorted out and am starting again. I'm looking forward to meeting all the not-so-new-any-more littlies as well as all the lovely adults who help out. It's been too long.
Then it's tuition again so I have to look over the work although I have plenty already prepared so that won't take too long.
Ooops, I've just checked the clock and it is more than time to have my bath and get dressed so I'd better go and get the day started. Have a good 'un and stay warm.
