Summer cold sadness

The only thing to be said in favour of this cold is that it hasn't arrived a week later as then I really would have been annoyed. As it is once again I've got a cold just in time to take up what little free time I have. Also means I've missed my MBA day school which took place today. But WTF - I've got some knitting done. I have two things to share today. The first is the magic loop socks started in my SP wool. Very nice.

I *love* the colours.

The second is something I think might be fugly, but I can't make my mind up. You see I heard about slum doctors a while back and it was at a time when I'd been thinking about doing something with all the swatches and part pieces for garments I'd started and abandoned. So I started sewing them together. The blankets only need to be 24"x24" as there is so much malnutrition. I figure when you're starving it doesn't matter that much what your blanket looks like.

Am trying to think of a happy note to end on..... The only yhing I can think of is that I have become quite obsessed with the song 'vaseline' by elastica. Only you substitute 'ravelry' for vaseline. So you end up with:

( Louder, louder )

When you're stuck like glue
When you need some goo
When you're stuck like glue,
Ravelry
When you're black and blue,
Ravelry
La la la la la la la la la la
When you're stuck like glue,
Give me some
When you're stuck like glue
If you'd like to woo,
Ravelry
La la la la la la la la la la
If it's hot like you,
Give me some
Do you need a clue,
I want some
Ravelry, Ravelry, Ravelry,
Ravelry, Ravelry, Ravelry.

Yeah, I know. But it's just stuck in my head!

What a blast from the past! Off to hunt out my old Elastica cd - I used to have the Elastica vaseline t0shirt in a lovely baby blue.
