My strepocarpus, I am developing a love of houseplants
So far not a lot, as I'm finishing my second virus since Christmas, though I have got a lot of knitting done while glued to the sofa by fatigue. Last week I finished a baby dress in a yarn that just suited the pattern and hopefully when I have sewn the second button on I will get around to showing it off. In the past day or so I have started on some socks for a cousin; as my sock drawer is rather full I have been concentrating on knitting socks for other people. Am I alone in finding it hard to stop knitting socks? If I do not have any on the needles I can get a deep longing to knit a sock. Still, there are worse addictions, right?

I think I will start keeping a blogging ideas notebook so that when I have ideas I don't forget them again. This year I would like to do something each month on the garden, even showing the weeds and failures. No point pretending to be better than I am. Gardening has been so good for me mentally and physically and it provides a safe calming thing to think about when I am anxious. There will hopefully be more on books, faith, knitting and other making.
Here goes, fingers crossed.
