Our first minus last night, followed by a thickish blanket of white frost this morning, likely the first of many. Somehow we've managed to not have the fire on this week. Helped of course, by the fact that when Daniel insulated the house, he crammed in as much as was humanly possible. As a result our house holds the heat very well indeed. So while most of our neighbours have had their chimneys smoking for over a month now, we haven't yet felt the need. But I think that's about to change.
So we have kept warm in the evenings by snacking on soups, leaving the oven open after cooking to warm the house and wearing (and then washing) the winter woollens. The elder two have been a little harder to convert, still convinced it is perfect weather for shorts and t-shirts. Perhaps I need to hide the summer clothes?
I have cast on again for a Kina. It seems I somehow ended up with far more stitches than the pattern specified. In other words I didn't read the pattern properly. Only discovering that once I got to the sleeves. So far so good. Old notes here.
Wishing you all a pleasant (and warm) weekend.
