Just a quick admin note. I've reluctantly turned comment verification on. I've resisted for quite a while but have had increasing amounts of spam comments lately. Fortunately not p0rn, but still rubbish.
Sorry, but that's life these days.
My nasty cold seems to be on the way out, thank goodness. I've gone back to my Shantaram sock from Ailsa as it has only one lot of patterning in it over a few stitches. Hopefully there will be a finished pair soon.
