where the only stress is caused by a vain attempt to use up all the yarn I've acquired ... or to put it another way ... Hello, I'm Mary-Lou, and I haven't thought about knitting for at least two minutes ...!

Emily has been hankering after these for some months now ... every time we go in to C&H Fabrics in Maidstone (which is probably every time we go to Maidstone ...), she's been dropping heftily unsubtle hints, so I decided to give in to pressure yesterday, as they're not incredibly expensive (between £2 & £3 a pair, depending on the size), and who knows? - it might just encourage her to actually use them ...
Meanwhile, I had spotted these at the I Knit London Stitch & Bitch Day, but they had run out of the smaller sizes, so I ordered them instead from the website, and they arrived on Monday ... wonder if I can convince Emily to have a go at crochet as well ...?
