I said I was going to fiddle about with this blog, take some pictures and other general tinkering. I’ve done nothing! I have been quite busy at work, although no more so than usual really, and there aren’t (touch wood) any computer problems so I think it’s just my normal laziness shining through again!
I bought a new mobile phone yesterday, so have spent lots of time trying to figure out how it works (I even managed to make a call today!). It has an MP3 player as well as a pretty good camera so I have high hopes of getting a few more pictures on this blog, as I will no longer have the excuse that I forgot to take a camera.
In other news, I have started a shrug for Bethany, her own ideas translated into something knittable by me. We’re using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK which I have never used before. It’s beautifully soft and 20p per ball cheaper than the equivalent Rowan yarn which has exactly the same composition (it was also 10% off, this week only – a bargain).
Also, yesterday was my Dad’s birthday. He’s 84 now, although it’s really hard to believe. The only noticeable difference is that his beard, once ginger, is now white.
This was taken in 1924 when Dad was a baby.
And this one was taken in February this year – Dad’s the one on the right!
