Two Years Ago January 5, 2017

janet-and-katerina-knitting    I randomly found this photo this morning when I sent birthday wishes to one of my nephews.  I suspect the photo is from 2 years ago.  The clues are the cat (Katerina), the cushions and blankets on the sofa, what I am wearing and the scarf I am knitting.  Katerina is no longer as affectionate.  She tends to find a place at the other end of the sofa.  She is definitely not a lap cat.  I happen to be knitting scarves again 2 years on.  I still have the purple polo neck and wear it often at this time of year   BRR

Here are the latest scarves.  I like purple.      img_2181

And green.


A Beautiful Morning January 1, 2017

A beautiful morning to start the new year 2017.   We had a dusting of snow last night and welcome sunshine this morning.
