Is it just me, or is anyone else in the UK now sick of being cold? The weather is still freezing. The snow is slowly melting. The pavements are thick ice and it's far safer to walk on the roads. But it's not safe to drive on the roads as a near miss with a mini bus showed me this morning (I was driving the car at the time and found a large patch of black-ice). All the fields are flooded (including the one next to our house) and I really am sick of it all.
But I feel guilty complaining. Just looking at the terrible situation in Australia makes me feel glad I'm cold.
The cake this week is, well see if you can guess...
Porsche. Did you get it right? And the recipient chose the colour. Anyone ever seen a Porsche this colour?
Knitting news is almost non-existent. The next lot of Mystery Blanket squares have arrived - one is done but the other 4 are still not even on the needles. I am hoping that half term will bring more time to knit. I am also beginning to feel that I really want to make a pair of socks. This does not often happen. I love sock yarn and have plenty of it. I love sock books and have plenty of them. I even have some waiting on my Ravelry queue. But I don't actually like knitting socks. For something so small, they seem to take a very long time. Usually in the region of months. Please, Sussex Yorkie, send me some of your Fast Knitting Sock vibes.
And I suppose I really ought to get on with my second mitten before summer starts. Oh yeah, ha ha, bloody ha.
