I've finally got around to taking some decent pictures of the stitchmarkers I got last year. I had been emailing the creator and asked whether he ever did personalised ones of people's faces - children, partners etc. The conversation developed and I sent him a pic of the Pooch. And look at this!
Now Pooch and I have a fairly entertaining relationship. There are certain disagreements but they rarely last too long. Tonight, for instance, he wouldn't give me any of his chocolate yoghurt, so I took his glasses and hid them. He went and found his old pair and when I went onto Ravelry this is what I saw.

Phew. My crush for him after series 1 was great enough to get me to watch several episodes of the weird romantic painter thing in BBC where he played Rosetti with an english accent. Judging by the first episode of series 2 he's buffed up a bit. Promises gratuitous body shots later on in the series. It's only a matter of time before he gets onto GaySpy. Being Human also offers Russel Tovey, frequently completely naked, which is also very nice.
Some of you may now be wondering what GaySpy is. Click on that link. Honestly, it's fine. Your microsoft safesearch is not going to pop up with a warning. It's something young-gay-about-town at work put me on to. I can only assume that I have different taste to young gay men as too many of them are what I think of as sinewy. Like Ronaldo. Never mind all the airbrushing on his face - I just do not think there is one attractive thing about his body. But then there are some verrrrrrry nice ones on there too. David Boreanaz, one of my personal favourites, was on there in his boxers a week or so ago. He's on the list, and if anything he's 1 and Aidan is 2. I tell Pooch he is 3. But he's not really. Just don't tell him that.
Anyway, Kanzashi.Beware of Embroidery". I've been bigging it up on Ravelry as it really was brilliant. Well worth a visit if you are down that way.
I've also been doing a bit of Debbie New knitting on one of her Tam Jackets. I've been thinking about making something for my physio's impending arrival and so thought I'd try this out. It would work brilliantly with fairisle. This is it pre folding. In the garter stitch version you make 2 of these.
