Just a quickie today, as I am sneaking off to a certain shop in town when a boy is otherwise occupied. I decided at the last minute to knit a pebble vest for my nephew. I have been inspired by all the lovely grey knits I have seen on Yarn Along lately, so I was delighted to see some grey Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran discounted at our fabulous local yarn store. Just the job. The cute gingerbread man stitch marker came from Emily - thank you xxx In fact, I have been overcome by a sudden need to knit more last minute presents. Why can't this happen in Ferbruary?
I am reading the latest Joel Salatin - Folks this just ain't normal. Man - he just hit the spot every time! I think I love him (in a very chaste and innocent way). His chapter on aeroplane food packaging, which I read last night, made me laugh out loud, while nodding furiously in agreement.
James and I have been reading Alison Uttley's Stories for Christmas. Just completely charming, and delightful. Full of magic and wonder.
Join in over at Ginny's place for more yarns. xxx
