And, inspired by Sarah's post, I thought you may like to see my desk at Uni, where I frequently post from. I know I know, it is covered in very interesting books. It's OK, its OK, form an orderly queue, there are enough copies of World's Poultry Science to go around...... :)

It is comfy and warm with the sun shining in. And even better when it includes kitties, a new pattern and beautiful yarn just itching to be cast on. Perfect.

And here's Grandpa, looking nowhere near 90, with my sister and Cath. We're all very proud of him (he goes travelling all by himself and his favourite drink is Sambucca).
Here's my dad (aka the Somellier) and James, looking thoughtful. It was rather late by then!
Pattern: Sirdar Leaflet - can't remember the number!
Yarn: The recommended Town and Country DK, Acrylic and wool
Time to knit: Two weeks
I'm not sure this is a good photo, the mock cables aren't too clear. I liked this pattern, easy with enough interest not to die of boredom. I did modify it to make it wider, and it could have been even bigger. The original pattern only has the cable at one end, I carried it all the way through. And this my favourite acrylic, nothing wrong with it at all and not squeaky. The whole thing cost me about £4! And best of all, he really appreciated having something made for him!

And last but not least, Daphne was in the bath again last week. Although, this time we saw her do it and she JUMPED, she didn't fall. What's wrong with these cats?? Velma has taken to eating the bubbles!
