I have been doing a fair amount of knitting, honest. But this dress is just not growing very quickly.
Knitting also cropped up in a popular BBC programme this week – Holby City (which is a hospital drama for those who don’t know it). A patient was admitted with two knitting needles embedded in her tummy! She’d been knitting on a bus, when it swerved off the road. She was about to cast off an angora scarf but became impaled instead. As she was taken down to theatre she asked if they could do their best to save the scarf because it was good angora! And after the op, the scarf was returned to her, neatly cast off by someone or other and without a drop of blood on it. Amusing storyline!!
