Yesterday, I met up with Liz for her birthday day out; we went to look at lovely things at the De Morgan Centre. This little bit of culture was sandwiched between coffee with birthday presents and a long pub lunch. Lunch and knitting evaporated the afternoon very happily.
At Ally Pally last year, I bought a skein of Hand Maiden Angel Hair in a beautiful greeny blue colourway. I intended to knit Icarus, but was thwarted by the difficulty I had knitting with the yarn and promptly renamed it Devil's Spawn.
