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.

  1. Ooo! great list of cheery things :) I LOVED Wolf Hall but didn’t know until now that there is a BBC version coming out! Looks like your knitting is coming along – love those bright flecks of fuchsia, Elizabeth. xo

  2. I like your stranger! I have Wolf Hall sitting in my library, so that makes two of us not having read it :-)

      • I know, I should really get on with it. To be honest, the English scares me off a bit, perhaps I should buy the Dutch version, don’t know …

      • that’s exactly why I put it off for such a long time. and when I finally took the plunge, I wondered why I had waited so long. and mantel writes so beautifully I would recommend going for the original version. Have a good day! x0
