A rare post

I was supposed to go to a BBQ tonight. But it's wet, and cold. I got an email assuring me that it's undercover and dry. But it's cold. And I'd get wet walking from my car. And anyone who's had to put up with me for 2 consecutive minutes during winter probably has an idea of how well I get along with the cold. One of these days I'll work out why I feel the need to move further and further into Victoria when I don't do winter. Until then I just complain and try and make everyone else around me as miserable as I am. It's a tough gig, but somebody's gotta do it.

Meanwhile I've been knitting socks lately. I've decided it's what I do. I can get a pair done in 4 days (because I'm using 3.25mm needles and 8 ply yarn) and I've decided what I really need to do is upgrade my sock drawer to LindaMade socks. After that I can work on finer work. Oh, and there's two of each sock of course, but as the mates are identical I couldn't be bothered changing 2 socks each time.
