Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise said in her blog post today that she likes her kitchen to be tidy before she sits down to knit. My kitchen is actually generally pretty tidy - it's so tiny with a minuscule worktop area so if it wasn't kept tidy there wouldn't even be room to make a cup of tea! I kid you not. The rest of the house is a different matter, however. I would venture to say that the living room and our bedroom are NEVER tidy, even when I have tidied there are piles of things where they shouldn't be. (I won't even get started on the Young Philosopher's room, but that is His Responsibility) The main cause of this is lack of storage, oh and
Today I got up very late again, and am still incredibly tired. According to my doctor my vitamin D after my recent tests was very low indeed, and I only just found out that can cause tiredness, exactly what I need on top of the CFS, but hey ho. Keep taking the tablets. Last night I cast on the border for the baby blanket I am making. I love the mint green colour, and the fact that the 10 row pattern grows so quickly. I am using my only pair of wooden needles, I haven't used them for a long time and had forgotten how I love wooden needles. I have also started the poncho, can't wait to have that finished. I wonder if I will manage to finish it before the weather is too warm to wear it? The trouble is I get sidetracked by other projects - more yarn arrived this week, a soft merino blend to make a wurm hat for myself, and some unusual luxury yarn for a gift I want to make.
I don't have a novel on the go at the moment, though I have a few here waiting to start, including three for my book group (we only meet every two months). This afternoon I've been browsing through one of my Christmas presents from the Prof, Pretty Nostalgic magazine's 'Home' book which is full of vintage loveliness. I am also planning to find more recipes in 'Real Food from Your Slow Cooker', I love mine and need some inspiration.
