CROCHET: The start of a hat in Rowan Creative Focus Worsted colour 401
LISTENING TO: British Poets collection from The British Library
READING: Moondance of Stonewylde by Kit Berry
It's dark and cold (and wet) and I need a hat. Something plain and simple and unassuming to wear with my brightly coloured raincoats. It's one of the things on my Year of Projects list and as my YoP is also about stashbusting, it seems a good idea to use the left over yarn from writing my Cwtchy Cable Armwarmers pattern last year. There should be enough for a little slouch if I also unravel the first armwarmer sample. The yarn is a joy to crochet, gliding effortlessly over the hook, so it should work up in no time at all. If it works out, it'll have the added benefit of being matchy-matchy, and we all know I love a bit of matchy-matchy!
falling asleep to reading the same book as last week (too tired to read very much in bed) and this morning I'm listening to a bit of Dylan Thomas. I have to admit to being disappointed that he sounds decidedly unlike Richard Burton - in my mind the two have become almost interchangeable as I'm a fan of Burton's recording of 'Under Milk Wood' and have listened to it many times over the years.
Little Miss has a horrid cough/cold and we're planning on cwtching up and staying warm today.
