The first day of the new year saw us witness a wolf moon, it was also a super moon and the biggest and brightest we will see this year.
The term supermoon refers to a full moon which occurs when the moon is closest to Earth. The first full moon in January has been nicknamed the Wolf Moon because traditionally, it appeared when wolves howled in hunger.
Unfortuantely, it was very windy and cloudy, even though DH and I took quite a few pictures, this is one of the best - i really must try and improve my camera skills.
We bought ourselves a copy of this almanac book for this year and strangely when DH's subscription copy of Gardeners World arrived they were suggesting buying a copy.... does that mean we are trendy?
It's filled with lots of interesting information about seasonal things and tells me that we'll see another supermoon on 31 January. That full moon will also be a blue moon because it's the second full moon within the same month which is rare.
My brother had a special birthday holiday in the US in October and brought me back some sock wool he found and liked. Still nursing this awful cold that's about I haven't done any knitting or crafting since 19th December but this week I picked up the needles again on Wednesday evening and the feel of wool and needles was so comfortable. I finished off the socks and ended up with a nice new warm and cosy pair for me..... my first finish for 2018.
I've also had needle and thread in hand and a little stitching has happened. I can't share that with you as its the monthly challenge Christine chooses for us. You'll have to wait till the last Sunday of the month to see that on reveal day. I must remember it needs to be fully finished and find inspiration how to complete it.
Love and blessings to you all
