I am knitting a blanket. Because it's coooooooooooooold. Last night we walked to church at 6.30pm and the paths were already frozen over. I slept in four layers of clothes, with three blankets on my bed, and was still cold when I woke up.
Luckily in about a month's time, I will have another blanket made of multi-coloured squares to keep me warm!!
I will probably need about forty squares; I have knitted about nine already, and my fingers are getting faster and furiouser. It is such a fantastic way to chill out because you can just sit down, go "blaaaah", let your mind wander, and give your restlessness an outlet through your fingers, or you can knit in front of the TV and feel virtuous/productive, et cetera.
