Now that the days are getting shorter, I'm looking for some new things to do indoors. Things other than household chores, watching TV and reading blogs. I used to do a lot of knitting when I was in my twenties and thirties. I've forgotten how many sweaters and pull-overs I knitted in those days. The results were often disappointing, though ... Many of my creations turned out to be way to large and ended up on the bottom shelf of my wardrobe.
During my two moves over the last 15 years, most of these 'failures' were put in large plastic bin liners and taken to the community centre. I hope they have found a new owner - bigger than me - who is enjoying the warmth they provide.
I gave up knitting after my 2000 cervical hernia. The repetitive movement that knitting requires is not beneficial to cervical hernias, believe me.
This autumn and winter I've decided to give in to a new hype. I usually stay away from 'hypes' because I don't believe in 'herd-like' behaviour. So, let's just see how it turns out.
How do I plan to spend my winter evenings? The above photo is a hint. Any idea? And is it the latest craze in your country too?
