My FO count is up to three now as I finished off two more pairs of sock started in 2009. I finished off the Possum socks. They are so beautifully soft. These socks were made with yarn I bought in Paris when we met Lynne and Nathan. There wasn’t much left to do on them [...]

pao was right. I can be incredibly decisive when under a deadline and I picked out two local sock yarns and a tiny cat pin cushion in my two minutes. Sadly, I had to touch and run the beautiful cashmere as I had little time to think as the rest of my team were waiting [...]
I was knitting on the train all the way up to Leeds to the amusement of my project team so when we passed a yarn shop on the way to the conference venue they all pointed and laughed. We were quite tired on the second day after working quite hard so I sent my team [...]

Our car park is a popular place. The very next day, we found a dog called Bingo. He was pretty cute and very friendly.
The snow has thawed now but I did see some other paw prints in the car park the other day. They belonged to this lovely chap who was wandering round the car park at work. We called him Smiley Cat because a Smiley Cat does whatever a Smiley Cat does. (Got earworm, yet?)
