I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’ve started knitting again. I can’t do too much at a time as it hurts my wrist – I’m having to be very careful not to exacerbate my RSI. However, today I finished a pair of bedsocks -the first things I’ve knitted since Chris died.

A pair of stripy bedsocks

With hindsight, it would have been better if I’d tried to anticipate the repeat in the variegated yarn to try to get the stripes to line up on the two socks. But, since they’re destined to be bedsocks, nobody is going to see them but me, and I quite like the random mismatch.

    Listen to Love Letters of A&H today. What a joy and hoot. Thought I should thank the reader and came across this sad news. Unfair. I will think of him and will continue to listen with two hearts — one reserved for the letters and the other for a rich life left behind.

    I have to think about the socks a bit more.
