September already, and the weather has turned, time for snuggling down with a book and knitting for a good yarn.
The tank top/ sleeveless jumper or call it what you will is in progress. I have about 2 more inches to go before I reach the armhole shaping- lovely relaxing knitting for watching TV by- I caught the first episode last night of All Creatures Great and Small, (Channel 5- UK) really enjoyable, and a nice programme by Alan Titchmarch on creating English Country Gardens- wish I had that programmes budget, but I did bag a huge bag of daffodil bulbs from Morrisons for £3 today.
My first book of the month is delightful, but sad in some ways, featuring a 13 year old boy who has lost his Mum , the only person who understood how hard life is if you can’t recognise faces and every noise is perceived as a colour. I had never heard of this condition before.
Linking with Ginny for Yarn Along-
Do you knit/ pursue another craft while watching TV, love to know what you enjoyed recently. What do you think about books where the main character has different abilities to “normal” people. I worry about making difficulties a subject for entertainment or do they serve to inform? Thinking here about the Rosie project and the Curious Dog in the Night.
