This weather is totally my fault you know? This is because before Christmas I was saying I was looking forward to going on some long dog walks! Somebody, somewhere obviously heard me!
The dogs soon realised they wouldn't be going out and they all settled in a comfy space.
For four of them that comfy space was on Callum!
The puppies are really growing now and love cuddling up to each other.
I've started to knit some bedsocks for my Mum, I've adapted them from a pattern that I've got for long socks so I just do them shorter. I usually crochet a tie to go through the cuff so they don't fall down but my Mum likes them loose round the ankle as she's trained her Yorkie, Topsy to pull them off for her. I'll have to try and get a picture of that sometime.
I'm actually using two balls of 4py wool together to make a double knit thickness. I've got quite a bit of 4 ply but I'm not very keen on knitting with it as you have to use such small needles and it takes ages to grow. This way it gets used!
The weatherman are telling us we've got another load of wind and rain coming tomorrow. Not good! There are a lot of people in Dorset who haven't been able to return home since Christmas and it looks like they won't be returning any time soon.
So not a great way to start the year for many.
As I sit in my comfy chair knitting, watching TV with all my family around me I count myself as very fortunate!
