Knitted succour


The last few days I've been very glad of three of my favourite knitted items - my 'Norwegian' hat, Susie's Reading Mitts and Boneyard Shawl. When the weather is like this..


.. and I have to walk up to the school to get the Boy at hometime and I'm feeling all stoic and Captain Oates-y (lol, it's only a bit over a kilometre and in a town), I'm very glad of some wool and alpaca.

My daughter doesn't like her waterproof overtrousers - 'they make a noise'. On the other hand she doesn't like the snow getting in her wellies either. We have compromised - I can pull her on the sledge if she gets tired. Of course then she'll get cold.

I may be some time.

Later: I made it back, were you worried? No? Oh well.
I'm really chuffed with how that picture of my knitting turned out, the colours are Just Right.

Love the colors of the knits, too! There simply isn't anything better on a wintery day, is there? The photo of your snowday is lovely, too! You have a great blog.

Cheers!
