Andria and Ju24 I definitely recommend making it, it was super easy. I did start off using dpns but the yarn I was knitting with is heavy so the stitches kept slipping off the needles. I changed to a circular needle until I was doing the decreasing then returned to the dpns. Well worth it.
Threads through my life - I certainly think this one is right up your street and if you promise not to 'adopt' it, you can try it on!
Jak, Angela, Amanda and Thursday - thank you very much!
I was invited by a work colleague to join her in a lunch time walk, so we wrapped up warmly and set off out into the snow - and it was worth it! A short brisk walk through the town and out the other side in a matter of minutes and straight up an old drovers track. We stopped off to chat to two donkeys, I loved their coats, especially the spotty one.
We carried on up the lane where chatted to a farmer who'd struggled up the same lane to feed his sheep.
And at the top - we stopped to puff and pant and almost instantly - we made a snow-wo-man! A powerful symbol - a sort of cross between a pagan mama, Boudicca and the queen - and we laughed and laughed and our hands went slapped lobster pink and stung painfully with the cold, but it was so much fun.
We only just got back to work in time, the return journey was a little slippery and a delightful shop called Serendipity called us in and..... oh what a delightful little treasure trove this turned out to be :) !
Final bit of waffle - I'm knitting again....................
