So there we were in the frozen wilderness, tucked up under the blankets with a pile of books: trashy novels, self-help books, Scottish history books, and a stack of maps of the Highlands, all found on the cottage's shelves. I had finished my first Mulled Wine sock and needed something easy to knit while I read with the other eye.
TV? Forget it - it was over in the beach hut and neither of us was going to brave the cold unless there was a pheasant in the oven to make it worthwhile!
So I made a start on my first Barn Raising Squares. Perfect comfort knitting! I started off at 4 hours a square, but I am getting faster!
