We woke this morning to a covering of snow, winter seems to have arrived early this year. Not my favourite season but it was such a bright white morning that I decided to embrace it.
The first snow of winter definitely required porridge for breakfast particularly as we had some cream in the fridge and maple syrup in the cupboard. Usually I have my porridge plain or with a little fruit so this was a treat that set me up for the day.
I am currently considering wandering down to join the massive queue at the post office with an overseas parcel but there is plenty to keep me indoors. I continue knitting away at the Estuary scarf, less than 100 rows to go, whilst also making fingerless gloves which require much less concentration.
Was it last year I said that if I started in the new year knitting one of these tiny sock decorations each week I would have 50 for Christmas. Recently I decided that if I knit one a day in December I could have 24, it’s not yet December and I have 7, that’s possible enough I don’t want to exhaust this out of character seasonal enthusiasm.
