Simply whiffing

I bought the latest issue of Simply Knitting today, with its free project bag. Just right for keeping my sock knitting in, I thought. But not yet, because it smells most peculiar. Stick your nose inside and it's like walking into B & Q: sort of creosote-y. So I have hung it on the line with the washing to see if the breeze and the fab sunshine will purge it.

I may not bother with this magazine any more. This month's patterns are horrible.
