I keep thinking it will snow, but apart from the occasional flurry at ground level, the snow stays up in the hills.
We listened to the traffic news on the radio and learnt about hold ups on the roads due to the snow and ice. Here the roads stayed clear of snow - and clear of everything really, apart from us.
I'm preparing myself for the really really cold winter weather by knitting a hat and scarf. "Ronnie's hat and scarf." I don't know how Ronnie got on with it, the hat was simple enough but a nice lady on You Tube had to show me how to knit an i-cord. She told me the 'i' stood for idiot It's like a bit of French knitting with a bobble on top. My dear husband says my hat looks like a joker's hat (I think he means a jester's hat) The scarf has eighteen i-cords with bobbles - I might modify the pattern a bit! The wool comes from a North Ronaldsay sheep and both the wool and pattern came from Sheepfold. My hat doesn't quite look like the one in the pattern, I think it's because I haven't blocked it into shape yet - I'm relying on my head to do that!
