Snow rarely falls here on the Isle of Wight ~ but when it does everything comes to a halt. Roads and country lanes are blocked, schools and businesses close and all but essential journeys are postponed.
Last Friday morning we awoke to a world of icing~sugar white, excited that we’d gained an unexpected day off work. Luckily I’d taken heed of the severe weather warnings, stocking up on essential supplies the previous day ~ so we were able to watch children having snowball fights from the safety of the house.
While The Artist read his library book and played some video games, I set to work with the yarn and huge knitting needles that I bought last week. This is what I decided to make:
A multi~coloured throw to snuggle under!
At first I found manipulating the oversized pins and three strands of yarn quite tricky, but ~ as you can see ~ I persevered. Except for casting off and weaving in loose ends, it’s done. And now I’ve got the hang of it, I’ll start another one! 🙂
Nurturing Thursday is the idea of Becca Givens, author of ‘On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea’
