Well, apologies for the radio silence yet again – though I’ve done slightly more knitting than blogging in the last few weeks.
We managed to get a ‘new’ car at the end of last month, so I’ve also done a bit of driving around, up and down the country visiting family now we’re mobile again. Joe now has his mittens and socks. Typically, I don’t have a finished picture of the socks – here’s the mittens –
