Went to Buxton today and bought some knitting needles and wool. I haven't tried to knit in years but remember being quite useless - seemed like a fun thing to try again (and might save me ploughing through so many books, maybe). I sat down when I got back and attempted to understand some instructions that supposedly told me how to cast on - I got as far as tying a slip knot.
Am going out with Dave tonight to see a film, we haven't decided what (it was my job and I haevn't done it), should be good.
In other excitement... I'm wearing my Talk Like A Pirate Day knickers!
