Finishing Touches



I decided my socks would look more gifty in a lttle bag. It was going to be just a tube tied at the top. Then I decided to make eyelet holes, then to use a wavy cast off, then to knit cord instead of using ribbon. Just managed to stop myself making some little medallions or flowers for the tie ends! It was rather tedious but I'm glad I did it.

Whatever Happened to Little Dorrit?

What has the BBC got against Little Dorrit? It started on a Sunday evening, then was moved to two bitty weekday evening slots. I'm glued to it but I've overheard people saying they couldn't follow it, lost interest and so on and I'm sure this was due to the scheduling. This evening I was looking forward to sitting down with my knitting and watching the recording, only to find that it had been replaced by an hour-long programme about the Karen Matthews case. Why? It's hardly World War III! This was such a late decision that even my digi recorder wasn't up to speed. I'm spitting mad and quite unreasonably disappointed but I suppose I'm in a minority. Grump.
