Winter is here, and my Quarter Wife is probably mad at me right now because I haven’t started on her booties and beanie. I have been promising to knit them for her since March, and I’m still twiddling my fingers (erm… blame it on the blog? Yes? No? No). I have no one to blame myself, I’ve been lazy and procrastinating.
Why, yes! I do knit! I learnt from my mother, who learnt from her mother. It’s fun when I’m with my mom, grandmother and sister. We sit together and knit or crochet while catching up on each other’s lives. It is such a great way to bond.
Now… back to why I’ve been lazy and procrastinating. I’ve had the excuse that there are no knitting stores in Zimbabwe. I remember this little knitting store in Bulawayo I’d get my knitting supplies from, but I never bothered to find out if the same existed in Harare. Now that my Quarter Wife is bugging me (and giving me many telepathic side-eyes), I decided to go hunting, so I know where to go for my knitting supplies.

Until next time… your Quarter Wife.
