Now that Christmas is over, I want to get back to normal but we have another week of everyone home and being without routine. I don't do very well without routine. I have been knitting a complicated lace scarf but have made a serious error somewhere due to knitting under the influence of alcohol. I can't face sorting it out just yet, so am knitting a simple triangular scarf using some self-patterning wool I bought a couple of months back. It's only cheap & cheerful, but I do like the effect - Mr.B says it makes me look clever. I didn't hit him.
There were some terrific books for me under the Christmas tree, I can't wait to get stuck in. I've already read Steal Like An Artist in one sitting - inspirational stuff.
When I was a child, we always had a new jigsaw puzzle at Christmas - it used to be set up on a fold-up card table with a felt top that was basically only ever used for jigsaws. This year I got given a jigsaw puzzle for the first time in years. I'm having a spot of bother - look at the next photo to see why.
And the picture of the picture is about 2 inches long and in black & white. This could take a while!
I'm longing for things to get back to normal so that I can get back to the easel. Or even get near the easel.
