If you’ve stopped by this site before, particularly last Blissemas, you’ll know I’m not a fan of winter. I don’t like the cold, I don’t like snow and ice, and I can’t stand the shorter days and dark nights. Brr. However, this year I’ve picked up a new hobby that will help me counteract the cold part – knitting! I used to knit when I was younger, but then I stopped and forgot how to do it. I was recently re-taught and I became hooked. So far I’ve knitted teddies for charity, an iPhone case, a Kindle Fire case and some wrist warmers – which are great for when I’m working on the laptop because I can still use the mouse and keyboard easily, but I’m kept nice and toasty. What do you think?
I’m now working on a Christmas Elf which is a little more difficult than anything I’ve attempted so far, but fingers crossed I’ll achieve it. Then I’m making a cardigan, also to keep me nice and warm. It’ll be a big project, but hey, the winter in this country lasts until March/April time so once it’s done I’ll definitely get some wear out of it 😉 I will defeat you, winter, I will!
And, if you want to see how I managed to turn chilly weather, snow and ice into an erotic story, check out my erotic romance novella, Reindeer Games: Cupid.
