Anyway, onto the more important issue of knitting. After yesterday's big D deadline, and the fact that the biggest chunks of hail I've ever seen were crashing into my bedroom window for most of the night, keeping me awake, today has been a day of rest. Well, not entirely, but I have done a little knitting.
Last night I finished this:
Lucy, Emilie and Leila are coming to visit me from London next week. Obviously, I don't want Leila getting a cold head, so a little hat knitting was in order. Of course, I don't want her getting cold tootsies either, so when I'd finished the hat, I knitted this:
Second sock still to knit. I've got a week to knit it, so no problem there, and they're so teeny I shouldn't get second sock syndrome. Here they are together, because a girl can never be too well co-ordinated!
While I was visiting Great Auntie Doris this afternoon for tea and cake, I cast on this hat for Millie in Kendal:

Obviously no one has mentioned "chuck out the chintz" to Auntie Doris!
*Sorry for the dodgy pics of Auntie D, they were taken on a mobile phone.
