Hello Jo, Of course I remember you :) How lovely to hear from you again :) I am so so happy that my little bit of crochety excitement rubbed off on you and you have got so much pleasure from a little hooky action - It is definitely a small world, hope to hear from you again xxx
Wovember inspired post.
I was thinking today, as I quietly did a bit of escapism knitting at work, of how many places I drag my knitting along with me.
Whatever my current project is, it comes too....to work, walking, holidays, visits, knit and natter and of course at home.
My curiosity piqued, I trawled through some of my photos and had a look where I'd sat down and had a little me time with my knitting.
Today at work - sitting at my computer. I try to go out for a bit of a break but today I had so many chores to do during a particularly brief hour that when I returned to the surgery, I just sat down with my knitting. (That cute kitten on the screen is called Jaffa and is only 3 weeks old!)
Holiday knitting is the best, each stitch imbibes the atmosphere, taking home a little bit of the light and the air to gently release when the garment is being worn.
Winter knitting is almost like comfort food, it is cozy, it is comforting, it is all encompassing. It does help, however, to have a fire and a fire-worshiping cat - bliss.
Knitting by laptop light - no not really, I use the laptop as a store for most of my patterns.
I was lucky enough to help out at a couple of woolly themed fayres and shows and it seemed right to take along my knitting :)
I have to honestly say that I have never found it too hot or too cold to knit. In winter or when we have been camping, knitting actually warms my hands up and if my project is big enough - it acts as a mini-lapghan and keeps me warm.
The wrapper on the yarn says it all.
Yes, you can see 3 cones of wool........think I'm dedicated to the cause!
