1) When dropping Adam off at school another mother approaches looking concerned – and removes a part-knitted scarf from her bag. She knows she’s gone wrong somewhere, can I please help?
2) I find myself using the phrase “I’m already on the areola” in an email to a friend.
3) (And this is worst of all… ) I’ve been dragged over to the dark side…
I’m probably going to restuff it once John has time to look in the loft properly for me – at the moment it’s home to an old pair of Ruth’s tights and an old (clean) sock of John’s. It’s alright though, until you look at the back:
“That’s not knitting!!” I hear you cry. And you’d be right. The instructions say to crochet the back. (Well, if you do the right thing and read through all the instructions first, it doesn’t – it quite clearly tells you how to knit the back. But I didn’t read through all the instructions first… ) So I taught myself to crochet last night. (Cue ominous music.) And… it was fun. Except that I now realise that I did it all wrong, but hey, I think the knitting police may be prepared to accept that as an extenuating circumstance.
(For a humorous take on the relationship between knitters and crocheters, see here)
Oh, and while you’re watching silly videos – here is Jamelia eating Marmite – yeah, I know, I know, I could go and find something more useful to do… (Oh, and Pixie – sorry you didn’t like it – and of course I’m not offended!)

I told someone how to cast off last week, and the next time I saw her she showed me the scarf she had been working on. It had been sitting around for ages until I told her how to finish!

Big Ruth; that's BIG Ruth ! () - 07 March '07 - 19:34p.s. just wondering what you’ll be stuffing it with from the loft…? Several dead spiders and some Christmas decorations perhaps?
Big Ruth - 07 March '07 - 19:36LOL!!

Do you think anyone would notice…?
Louise () - 07 March '07 - 21:55Loved the wooly bullies video. Great fun. Now for an ignorant Yank, what’s Marmite? I got that you spread it on toast, but what’s it made of?
lorinda () (link) - 08 March '07 - 02:08That is a hilarious video—although as someone who prefered crochet over knitting for 40 years, it made me a little nervous.
