The mornings are dark and so we eat breakfast by star light.
The days are short.
The mornings are slow and just a little quieter.
Which is quite nice.
Soon enough we will be back in the middle of the long summer days.
I am stocking up on these calm dark hours, before the almost endless days see my hatchlings awake until two am.
Not that I mind our midnight beach trips, it is just that this gentle wintery wake up is appreciated.
Along side the various knitting projects, I have tried making mittens.
Here is my first attempt, a little blue pair for hatchling no4.
I knit really long cuffs so hopefully, when unfolded, they will stay in his coat sleeves.
Total cost of wool used, 35p.
And on the off chance that you too have a Thomas the tank engine fan who needs to put his felt markers to a more productive use than colouring on the bedroom door, try this link.
