A few weeks ago I started on a hand knit aran top. Only a 12 row pattern, the sort of thing I can usually do with my eyes closed. It may be time for me to open my eyes and concentrate. So far I have had to frog it 3 times and start again. Sunday being a miserable cold and wet day, I started again with no distractions - so far, touch wood, it is going well.
For over a year I have had a hankering for a Wii. Though the price seemed to make it more of a luxury than a necessity. I was unsure if I would even use it. Yesterday a friends grandson demonstrated and let me play Wii sports. Tennis (easier than running round a cold court), golf ( that one will take some practise) and boxing (wow what a way to get a good workout and rid of the frustrations of the day). I have decided, I really want this amazing little box. The gym is fine, but getting cold and wet on the way there is not much fun. So on Thursday I am going to treat myself to an early Christmas present. I will do it now before Gareth goes home again, then if I need help setting it up, he is around to sort it out:)
