From the serious, looking at knitting during the Libyan war; to the interesting, finding out what Kaffe Fassett's Desert Island Discs are; and then to the pure fun of Christmas jumper fashion, this collection will while away many happy knitting hours.
There's even a pattern to knit the Woman's Hour tea cosy! Tongue in cheek I hope ...

To replace the Fyberspates yarn I bought Blacker West Country Tweed DK, which is a British bred and spun wool from Brityarn. It's sturdier than the Fyberspates, if not as soft, and I adore the little flecks of other colours in my chosen purple shade.
The cast on party was last Friday and, once again, I'm a bit late to the party (I'm sensing a theme here!) but I'm looking forward to getting stuck in. To my surprise Brityarn doesn't sell needles and I had to buy two circular needles in sizes I don't already own from another internet retailer. Once they've arrived in the post, which should be tomorrow, I'll be listening to the BBC Radio 4 knitting programmes on my laptop and casting on my Scollay.
