I am like a child at Christmas who opens all their presents at once, casting on one project after another after the monotony of eight pairs of slippers, which I did get finished well in time. This month I have cast on a simple project which I can knit whilst watching films etc, a difficult project to learn new skills, and a small project I have in my bag to knit whilst out and about. As if that was not enough when searching for a jumper to wear yesterday morning I picked out a cardigan I made ages ago and hardly wear, I have been meaning to frog this for ages and started to, I am going to knit a different cardigan with the wool.
My portable project is a sock for me, I knitted several pairs as presents for Christmas 2012 and really wanted to knit a pair for myself. I bought this yarn ages ago it have finally got round to casting in on. I am really intrigued to see how this yarn knits up.
I am currently reading a book I was given for Christmas, Gossip from the Forest by Sara Maitland looks at the connection between forests and fairy stories. Each chapter Sara visits a forest, whilst working through the seasons, and completes the chapter with a unique retelling of a fairy story. It is a wonderful and interesting read.
