So the temperature plummeted as if hit with recession and we’re back to the postcard image of drippydrab London with umbrellas screwdrived into our skullcaps. Hey, I did say English summer rolled in and then right back out early this year. The British weather forecast is like the slots, ding ding ding you got Clouds, Sun and Tsunami. Ok maybe not a tsunami but since light snow counts as a natural disaster here we’ll swap that one in – and Rain, Rain, Rain is hardly a jackpot.

Anyway, you know I have nothing much to say when I start out a post with the weather. Truth is, it was bright out when I started knitting today and I look up now it’s dark – I look down again and I’ve only done a hand’s length. I say this now, this will probably be done around, mehsay… August, so you might as well forget about it for the time being.

  6. Wow, that looks very nice. I wanna try my hand at knitting too. Is this a particular type of knitting? Cuz its kinda holey and doesn’t look like the other knitted stuff I see. And what kinda yarn are you using? Do you have to keep changing the yarn for different colour variations or does the yarn come like that? Sorry for the n00bness.

  7. hahahaha umbrellas screw drived into your skullcaps ay? lol. that is the REAL reason why i could never live in london. too much rain!! Speaking of rain, once in ny ktown, I was walking by this weird cd shop and there was a huge poster plastered on the wall of a Bi concert (in the photo he was like topless of course) and the tagline was “It’s RAINING” hahaha. And my friend took one look at it and said “It’s rainin’ HARD!!” lol.
