Getting carried away

I don't usually get involved with anything political - though having met DH through Young Conservatives all those years ago perhaps I should as good things can clearly come of it. Mind you I only joined because I was pressganged by a friend to keep her company as she though it would be a good way to meet a man...she didn't....funny how things turn out. Anyway, I digress, it was more the humanitarian aspect of the Save the Children Knit One, Save One appeal that caught my eye, never mind Gordon Brown. If a couple of hours of my time could potentially save a baby's life by keeping it warm to help prevent pneumonia then I'd knit a hat, just the one, then I'd get on with my top. Erm, but it didn't quite work out like that. They were fun, cute and easy and I got a little carried away. I started thinking perhaps I'd try a different yarn, oh and there's just a little of that left which would look great striped with that one, and that stitch looks interesting on that cardi pattern, how would it work on a hat. DD didn't help, " there's nothing girly" she said so I had to knit a pink one, and a self striping pinkish one and so my one hat became....

and there is yet another on the needles - I think I may be addicted.

This is what happens to a cat who likes catching moorhens but who loses his footing

And doesn't green muddy pond water smell!
