February already?

Apparently it's February already. I'm not quite sure how that happened.

January got swallowed up with extended visits to my parents, my dad has broken his hip, my mum's Alzheimer's is getting worse.....

On the plus side the lost cable sock was found and I finished it's friend so I have lovely warm toes

I also knitted these lovely variegated socks in Hermione's everyday sock pattern from ravelry. So lovely to knit. So cross that I snapped my knit pro circular needle about ten minutes after finishing them. But at least it was after..............

I also finished the daisy cowl for when I want to wear a cloud of fluff.
Sometimes we need to wear clouds of fluff, it's kind of like pretending to be a unicorn.

Yesterday the sun came out for the first time in weeks.
I spent several hours battling with the mud in the garden and was rewarded with these snowdrops.

They have a fine delicate perfume and such intricate details.
Calming and restorative.
Just what I need right now.
