I am sure it has been a long, long time since I titled a post like this. Those that grew up in the UK in the 90s will have read that in the voice on an excited Caroline Merton and may well start going "a fer fer fer, a fer fer fer, pour favor". But despite the BBC breaking the story that the Met Office has no official definition for one, we are in the midst of a heatwave.
The heat means I've only done a few rows of knitting at the end of the evening when it really has cooled down. So the pop spots shawl continues slowly. I've been working on smaller projects instead that don't need to sit in your lap. So the french knot clock face is now in residence!
Speaking of which...KNITTING AND CRAFT BOOKS GOING CHEAP. I have 40 listed on ebay ending between Sunday and early next week. Everything starts at 99p so you can get some real bargains. My little flat is looking noticeably emptier - at least to my eyes. Pooch still claims it's stuffed with nonsense - but then he is fairly nonsensical himself.
There will be more to come in the next few days about the other little projects I've been making. For now - I am going to sit back and read and enjoy the heat!
