It's getting to that time of year again; it's dark when I get up in the morning and I'm starting to think about long fingered gloves for my morning commute. Winter is not my favourite time - I think I'm a bit reptilian and I need to bask in the sun to obtain energy, but there are many things I enjoy about this season. One of them is wearing my handknits, and I wore my stripy scarf for the first time on Sunday and it was so snugly and lovely. One is climbing into bed at night with a delicious hot pack to warm my feet. The only problem is that, sometime during the summer Leon and I disposed of the microwave - we thought the bench space could be better used for other things. I really haven't missed it, but, instead of using a microwave heat pack this winter, I bought a hot water bottle.

This thing smells of rubber and feels like rubber.

To make it all better I knit a cover for it. Out of sparkly handspun.

Bring it on Winter, I'm prepared.

  1. LOVE IT!
    clearly you are not leftovers people like I am, I think (other than my kitchen aid) my microwave is my most expensive and most loved kitchen appliance. It does ALL the things!
