sigh, that’s been bugging me for so long. No wonder I didn’t realise that the literary basis for my conviction that it would be possible to double knit 2 socks at once was Anna Karenina. You see, that must be relatively near the beginning of the novel, because I didn’t get very far with it. I was, at most, 14 at the time, so perhaps its time for a new attempt. One of these days. Everyone seems pretty sure that that’s the source, but if anyone has any other suggestions I’d be delighted to hear. It seems odd somehow, that my only clear memory of the novel is that. Or, actually given how my head works, perhaps not odd at all.
I’m planning on finishing the stripy jumper tonight. If (and it’s a very big if) I can find my buttons. The weather today has been decidely wintery, and very very wet. I have very ambivalent feelings towards winter, but one thing I’m not in the least ambivalent about is the need for cosy hand knits.

With less than two weeks to go, we still don’t know what Brexit will look like, or whether it’s happening at all on October 31st. Like every other small business in the UK we’ve been trying to plan, without having much idea of what we’re planning for.
