Starting... finally

I'm Viola. I live in a small town with my husband and daughter. I write, I knit, and I try my best to be half-decent mother. I'm at various stages of learning about all three things...

I write fiction - mainly historical, but with the occasional contemporary short story. I've been writing as long as I can remember. One day I'll actually be happy enough with something to submit it.

I started knitting (again) about 3 years ago. I enjoy challenges. Nearly everything I knit is a challenge!!

I've been a mother for a year. It's the hardest thing I have ever done. And the best thing. Medalklector (my husband) is a great father. But the learning curve is steep!

We shall see how often I manage to update this....

And my current status is:
Nibs: No writing at the moment. Many ideas, haven't quite got them on to paper yet
Needles: Helena from Knitty is nearly finished. There are many other things languishing on the needles
Nappies: Recently, there have been many, and they are unpleasant. But our sick little girl is getting slowly better. She was well enough this evening to decide it was more fun to play than sleep.
