Was asked to post the answers to 2 questions as part of secret pal so here they are....
- How old were you when you learned how to knit?I was three! My mum bought me a 'my first knitting' kit with blue plastic needles and really scratchy acrylic yarn and away I went. Can't remember what I made but i can remember some older kids seeing me and telling everyone who came near that I was only three. Looks like knitting in public has never been something I was shy about!
- Who taught you? My mum. When I took it up again properly later in life (erm, about 21) I went to the library and looked in the children's section for a 'my first crafts' book and re-learnt all the casting on and off bit.
I've also got hold of a cushion pad for my archemides spiral cushion from woollythoughts.com.
So have eaten my chocolate rabbit and am still pretending to self that this is the start of a new less-choc-era. Well, have made it to almost 11am and haven't had any yet in any case. Have an added incentive to start a weightloss programme to keep myself sweet for Cillian Murphy who is now on my get-out-of-jail-free-list*. Oh yes, he is so fine. Oh yes, I'm going to make him mine....
*Some people find it strange that Pooch and I have these lists which contain between three and five people depending who is telling the story. These are people we can go and do the dirty with without it impacting on our relationship. Pooch has natalie imbrulia, eva green and kate moss i think and I have whoever I damn well feel like at the time**. The rules are they have to be famous and a sub-rule is that you have no chance of ever scoring with them ever in a million years ever. But a gal can dream!
** Cillian Murphy, Mark Harmon and ..... not sure who else today. Angelina Jolie?!
