Things that cheer me up in January:
- A roaring fire.
- Flowers on my writing desk.
- Tea and cake.
- Knitting! As was to be expected, I got a bit bored with the plain Chesterfield I’m knitting for my brother. So, I put it aside and selfishly cast-on a Stranger cardigan. I am now happily cabling away.
- Knitting podcasts. I have only recently started listening to knitting podcasts. One I really enjoy is knit.fm. And Truly Myrtle, who writes one of my favourite craft blogs, posted her first podcast yesterday.
- A good book. I must be the last person not to have read Wolf Hall. I’m racing to finish it before the BBC adaptation airs next Wednesday. Something to look forward to.
