Somebody asked me yesterday why suddenly people are knitting socks on the ferry these days. Well, it’s the famous Sanday Sock Cult… I said.

Which led to a minor mental aberration, and my secret renaming of the Sanday sock knitting ladies as…The Sanday Sock Cultists.

I giggled, on and off, all the way home.

What? Oh… say it out loud – you’ll see.
