What was I going to say? Can't remember! I write whole blog posts in my head but the moment I get near a 'puter I go blank. Anyway today was fork 'andles day in our house. Much excitement for Miss Mouse.
On a less exciting note, last week I made her a hot-water bottle cover from cheap Lidl 'Fontana' yarn. The hot-water-bottle itself is half-size, perfect for tiddlers, though actually she so rarely feels the cold it's only for the extremes of winter. Miss Mouse takes after her father; I on the other hand am constantly chilly. I had my doubts about the suitability of this yarn as it's quite thick and I thought it might be too well insulated for feet-warming purposes, but actually having test-driven the hot-water-bottle and cover the last few nights (yeah, ice-cold toes and it's only October), I can confirm its eminent suitability.
Excellently modelled don't you think?
