I shall also need to ask him what colour he would like to have for the toe, if the yarn finishes before the toe gets here.

All I can say is that it is a good job that these were intended to be “under the desk” socks!

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
