I marked this project as finished in rav in September last year, but the truth was that I hadn't finished sewing in all the ends, and summer didn't provide an excellent motivation to have it sitting on my lap while I did.

Turns out, hideous essays are good motivation to do just about anything else.

I finished the knitting of this months ago, and only just now have I put the tassels on and finished it proper.

It suddenly seemed a very attractive option when the choice was marking the horrendous essays I have in my care. Also, my flat is very tidy at the moment.

More cardigan stalking (with permission)

One of the teachers at school is helping to bring back the man cardigan. And because putting up a blog post is exactly what I should be doing right now, here, I am telling you about it.

If I make Elizabeth's hybrid, but as a cardi, it should be fairly similar. If I can work out how to do the collar. But maybe I should finish one of the jumpers I am making for my brother first. Not that he looks to be leaving Thailand anytime soon.

I don't suppose anyone wants to save me from marking/interviews/yr 12s?

All Stars

Six kids, sitting in a row in class, all wearing All Stars.

I kinda want a pair.

It is good having good friends.

I went to the website and very nearly bought one of everything.

To begin at the beginning:

It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobblestreets silent and the hunched, courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea.

Don't forget to breathe

Our pilates instructor says this to us all the time. It is surprisingly useful advice.
