It is a cold, blustery, snowy day here in the mountains of Colorado beckoning me to stay in my Black Watch flannel gown all day long. I’ve accepted that offer and am warm and cozy knitting away on some last Christmas gifts. The dogs are cooperating with me today and for this I’m extremely grateful. They both have found their favorite spots in which to rest as I spend some time knitting cashmere into my daughter’s PASHA hat. Just a few days now and all this madness of Christmas knitting will be over, not that I mind too much. I just don’t like to work against deadlines.
Winter Solstice continues to be a cozy winter read. I smiled as Rosamund Pilcher described one of her characters because I could readily identify.
“She got a lot of satisfaction writing, with her best pen, on the thick creamy paper. She had a passion for notebooks, paper, pens, the smell of ink , all the tools of writing. Stationary shops were her most favourite, and she seldom emerged from one without a little box of coloured paper clips, a pocket of postcards, or a new red-ink Biro.”
I have no idea what a “Biro” is but it made me want to go out to a stationary shop and buy one. Of course, I would probably need to make a trip to the UK to do so!
Joining Ginny today for a quick post. This elf needs to get back to work!
