Nothing better...
...than sitting in front of the fire with your knitting. It was such a miserable day on Sunday, howling gales and sleet all day, that the pair of thought "sod it!" and we just holed up in the living room for the day watching films - and me doing my knitting of course.

And I have actually reached a more distinct stage in the jumper - I reached the armpits last night. Another small mistake (should have cast off 4 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows) but I misread the pattern so I have adapted another couple of slow decreases into the raglan shaping instead. It makes sense to me anyway - plus there is no chance that I am taking back rows at this stage. Far too much hassle.

S'n'B tomorrow night - think I might have to take my camera to get pics. Looking forward to it since I haven't been since January - a combination of being offshore and being snowed in!

    Hello from Austria! Oh, your jumper looks so great already, you've been doing really good progress with it - but when I see how cozy your spot at the fireplace is, then it's no wonder indeed! I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of the finished jumper!

    Just delurking, what a gorgeous fireplace. I also enjoy knitting and lived in Stromness until I was 9. Enjoy reading your blog.

    I so agree - trouble is these days where the world is best experienced from beside the fire are getting too frequent - roll on the Spring!
