Unfortunately at the weekend I lost my phone – so i have nobodies’ number. If you want to get hold of me I really do check my mail with rather obsessive frequency – I’m less obsessive however about replying.

I’m knitting a very delicate lacey shrug thing at the moment – in Kid silk haze. I’ll probably be posting a pattern at some point.

Being the weird geek I am I made a 5 hour round trip to see Ladytron last weekend. It was great – I have lots of photos but haven’t had a chance to edit them yet – Helen’s eyes seem determined they like being red – perhaps she is a demon? But I’ll make a little gallery soon and hopefully someone other than me will appreciate it.
