A cold start to the week

I hate Monday's with a passion!  Today started at 5am with snow and three of the cats playing with the plug chain in the bath...never a good omen for the day!  However, despite the cold and my ever increasing hatred for Club Penguin, the small ones are happily drawing, the baby is asleep on my knee and I have a huge cup of tea so it's not all bad (I haven't forgiven the cats yet though!)

I've managed to sneak in a couple of rows of knitting on my Helix socks today which I haven't picked up for ages.  I started them as part of the lovely Crafts from the Cwtch #NSSkal as socks have always been a bit of nemesis project of mine.  I actually don't wear socks (ever!!) but have always wanted to knit some so decided on a toe up, two at a time pattern to test my new found magic looping skills.  Add in trying Judy's Magic Cast On for the first time and I expected to be completely confuddled but in reality, it's all ridiculously easy!!

My other WIP at the moment is a tad larger...a huge sofa throw in super chunky yarn!  A bit of a dream since seeing a cable knit lime green throw last year, I decided it was a essential for our newly redecorated/refurbished living room with the current cold weather (although it'll probably be next winter before it's finished!)
