The freezing temperatures have kept me inside knitting up a storm. Every now and then I stop, feed my son, have a long bath and take the dog for a very short walk. I’m obsessed with my knitting. Could that have anything to do with my recent foray to the wool store, where I discovered the most amazing colourful wool? These are my latest scarf offerings. I have just started the scarf on the far left. The colours will be wild.
I haven’t done much shopping for presents because I figure my family and friends won’t mind receiving scarves.
Tonight my friend Kerry is coming over and we are planning to make cards using various papers, ribbons and beeswax. Oh and did I mention I made a cheesecake? I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw fresh raspberries on sale this week.
What could be better than cheesecake with raspberries and topped with whipped cream? We need a few treats every now and then to get through this weather. Extra padding does help keep us warmer. (Our main course will be tourtière with a cherry/calvados sauce as an accompaniment.)
On the table are these cyclamen blooms (pic above). I love the leaves even better than the flowers. I’ve grown to love them while working on the next instalment of my story at The Created Wor(l)d. I am enjoying writing very much.
