Hockey Knitting

Saturday is hockey for the son – usually the MOMD takes him, however he was laid low by a nasty but mercifully brief gastro bug, so I grabbed my knitting and travel mug of tea and headed off to do my parental duty.

For the evening game I had some miso soup in the thermos, tea in my Nundle Woollen Mills travel mug, and some Dove dark chocolate bites for much-needed sugar!

I also had wool socks, wool jumper, wool shawl, wool mitts, wool hat, fabulous retro wool tweed coat to keep me warm, but was not as well-prepared as those parents who brought blankets or doonas or both to wrap themselves up against the cold.

  1. My mum says it has been a bitterly cold, wet and windy Winter. I don’t envy you your Hockey watching at all. At least it wasn’t Minus 11 like it was at Liawenee last week!!

    • Well I am devoutly thankful that it was above zero!!! You have just put me right of Liawanee! However I must respectfully disagree with your mum somewhat – I am not finding this winter as grey or wet as the one a couple of years ago when everyone (including me) got SAD. :> Kate

  2. I’m thinking that the blanket is a fine idea. I was sitting at tennis this evening wishing my legs were warmer….maybe I should have had stockings on under my jeans!
