Knit one, snow one

What a day!

This morning I decided not to send Charlie to school as he was exhausted.  He has been waking most nights with a whoopy cough and on top of this, this morning he woke with 'dead' arms.

He is so tired, he must have slept so heavily that the blood had drained from his limbs in a funny position.  He was very upset about it.

So this morning I looked out at the hard frost on the ground and thought no, not school today.

We cuddled on the sofa, and watched the film, 'How to tame a Dragon', which Charlie thought was amazing!

Whilst watching Vikings tame fire breathing dragons I started knitting Rufus a scarf.

I am using Sidar chunky wool with large needles (something I haven't used before).  Wow, so pleased with the results, it's hour later scarf nearly done!

What was the weather like with you today?

Here in the West Country it was a day of two halfs.

This morning the sky was brilliantly blue with glorious sunshine, as you can see from this photo.

This afternoon, the weather closed in and it started to snow!  We are sooooo excited!

Yesterday I bought a lovely blue plastic sledge, I hope we will get a chance to use it this weekend.

In the meantime, I was so pleased to be back home from my parents. We arrived there after lunch in sunshine and green fields.  Left in a blizzard and a blanket of white.

Home, warm & cosy.


Hope you all are tucked up warm tonight.

Have a great weekend.



  1. Blimey Lou, a whole scarf in one hour - how brilliant is that!

    No snow in London (yet) thank the Lord (hate the snow). Bah humbug!

    Have a lovely w/end.

  2. I think you've sent the cold weather our way to France. I could do with a scarf like yours, but I doubt I could make one seeing as it's taking me forever to knit a small cardigan for a 12 month old :)

  3. I've made a christmas pressie scarf with chunky & large needles - amazing how quickly it grew.

    No snow here in Suffolk - just extremely cold.

    Hope Charlie feels better soon.

  4. Hello Lou,
    What weather indeed! We just drove back from the other side of Bath and the landscape looks so pretty as if dusted with icing sugar and sparkling too.
    I love that you had a snuggly day at home, I can't imagine anything lovelier than cuddling up with a little one and watching films :-)
    And the scarf - gorgeous. I've a hankering for some chunky wool to knit a very cosy jumper to wear at home, so I must go search some colourful yarns.
    Happy weekend to you too!

  5. Just popped over from Kerrys blog, congratulations!
    No snow here yet (Isle of Wight) I moved here 3 years ago and lots of teens here hadn't seen snow in the real, but we had a flurry the last 2 winters. Hope you get some good fun with that sledge!
