The pinky-purpley sock yarn colour is called "Grandma" - is she suggesting that we're getting old? :-)
The world's longest Sudoku puzzle is almost as long as my house!
I have my parents staying with me at the moment, and at breakfast my mum presented me with a lavishly decorated envelope.
On the card inside was the following inscription:
So out in the back yard, heading towards the garden gate, sat half a wine barrel and a spirit level.
The half wine barrel is upside down because we still have to drill some drainage holes. I plan to plant a Japanese Maple in this receptacle. And the spirit level? No home is complete without one!
Sock knitting news:
I had vague hopes of finishing the Jaywalker socks in time to wear them on my birthday. I came close...
...but no cigar. MM at work said I could have worn them, but they'd have been a bit uncomfortable with those pointy sticks poking about everywhere.
