ready for snow
We are off to the snow for a few days on Sunday so I had this romantic idea of me sitting in front of the fire knitting or crocheting something. I took off down to the local wool shop and bought a crochet needle, but even with a bit of tuition from my mum, who in my childhood used to crochet all manner of things including crocheted bikinis..I couldn't quite get the hang of it. So, I've pulled out some old knitting needles and so will spend tonight casting on! I've no idea what I'm making. A scarf? A baby blanket? A wash cloth? Who cares. I'll probably be over it by the time we even pack to go, but for now, I'm into the idea of it....and, even though my sewing corner is smack bang in the middle of the house and the boys and the noise and the ruckus, sometimes I do feel as if I have my back to them so an activity that turns me around is probably good.
Of course just sitting doing nothing would probably also be good but I would have to work harder on that... and then I would really feel like I should be doing housework.
