I’m enjoying some sunshine coming in my window where I sit at my computer – the weather man said it is still cold out but I am appreciating the sun. I’ve really been noticing the longer hours of daylight too and what with all the green shoots in the garden I’ve even been daring to think spring (but only in a whispher as snow is forecast later in the week).
I did soemthing new this weekend – well I did a new version of something I’ve done 6 times before.
I had a lovely chat and coffee with a lovely group of ladies in a new knitting (but most of us crochet) group. We even had our photo taken by some Italian tourists who were fascinated by our colourful group (they did ask first). Over the past 5 years I’ve been to 6 other knitting / croceht groups but only go to one of them still. I’ve learnt that being willing to knit in a cafe (autospell wanted me to say cage!) is not sufficient simillarity to create a cohesive group. This new one feels like it has real potential in terms of simillarity in creativity and wanting to try new things and share ideas. Enough to be meeting again next weekend.
And as my nephew’s birthday was during the week I can now share a new item I mentioned a few weeks ago – I made him this fun hat – seemed appropriate as his birthday coincided with the start of the Chinese year of the monkey
Hoping you all have a good week with some sunshine
