The King’s Head pub, where the Battle Knit & Natter group meet up every other Saturday.

Horses, don’tcha know? This horsebox ‘lives’ just down the road from me. There’s a … sort of large shed set back from the road. I don’t think any horses live there, though.

One Mother’s Day Mitt, in progress. You can’t see the cable on the back terribly well in the picture, but it shows up much better in person. I was knitting these from sock weight yarn, because Mum has ouchy tendons in her wrists, and the fingerless gloves I made her for Christmas have been helping that, especially if she wears them overnight… only they’re made from aran weight angora, so she needed some lighter weight ones for the spring.

This is one of those sci-fi classics that I had bizarrely never read. I’ve known the name of it for ages, and the vague synopsis, and I’d always meant to read it, but I never did until I happened across it on the inventory of someone I was getting another book from on BookMooch. So I grabbed it as well, and have now read it. And loved it. And must get the rest of the series Right Now!

Day 48 – 26th Feb 08

The spire of one of the churches that’s down the road from me. In fact, it’s one that I can see from my flat window. So here it is from right below it, on a lovely sunny (but crisp!) day.

Urk… there is leakings from my ceiling again. This is a really irritating recurring problem: irritating for me and for my neighbours upstairs, because they can either (a) never use their shower, or (b) re-seal round the bath every few weeks. It wasn’t done properly in the first place, and it’s going to be a major job to sort out, apparently. Gah.

Worst thing is, the leaks either come through the fire alarm system, or down this wall and over the lightswitch. Couldn’t be somewhere that there’s no electrics, could it? Nooooo.

Day 50 – 28th Feb 08

This is Xander’s new favourite hidey-hole: under the coffee table that’s by the sofa. Trouble is, he only ever goes half under it…

See what I mean? Daft mog :-)

Day 51 – 29th Feb 08

And this is when I was in the middle of winding up possible yarns for the Sock Knitter’s Pentathlon which was starting on 1st March. Posh Yarn Emily in Ripen is the green one on the left (that’s the one I used in the end) and on the chairs / ball winder is The Yarn Yard Bonny in Shelter.

    Ender’s Game is awesome!
    Man, I’m not sure if we’re going to get to your neck of the woods. Bummer!

    Ooh, I’m an internet stalker – just found your web page off my one, really like it! You sound like a much quicker knitter than me! I’m still on my monsters, and have only made three in a month.

    Is your cat called Xander after somebody in an american tv series? (sorry just a random question)
