The weather has turned cold and there has been flurries of snow though nothing of note really but this was Wednesday; it did not last long.
However we can say we have had some unlike last year.
It has been an eventful month so far. My mum had a gas leak and thanks to kind neighbours that is being sorted out, my sister on Skye has had terrible weather and high winds and we have had a leak in our cellar which is probably caused by the rain. It is a mere seep but I seem to have become obsessed with it. A very nice man came and replaced the drain gulley but I have spent days running up and down the cellar steps to see if it is ok.
I have begun a new weaving and I am very pleased with how it looks so far. I am using these yarns for the weft and a rather nice multicoloured one for the warp.
I had lots of sewing/knitting/craft related gifts this Christmas so I am going to be busy. I have not got a big project in mind yet. The sewing machine is still asleep from her Christmas break so I am concentrating on weaving and knitting. My snowman is almost finished and just needs a scarf. I finally plucked up the courage to try the circular needles and so the band for my hat is progressing nicely. It will be double pointed needles next or crochet!
I have started the reading project I mentioned and my first book is White Teeth by Zadie Smith. So far I am enjoying it. I have not chosen th esecond one for this month yet.
