Stop Knitting at the Shark

Despite the perceived wisdom, research has shown that women are pretty good at navigating.  They just have a different approach to men, often relying on landmarks.  If I’m embarking on a journey that I undertake infrequently I certainly rely heavily on key physical features: The park, the petrol station, the shark in the rooftop.

Not up to me usual picture quality I know, but the double decker was moving and I was using my phone camera.  It’s mostly here to prove that I’m not making this story up.  Passing the Headington Shark signifies the end of my inter-site bus journey.  Time to stop reading my work emails and pack away my knitting.  Knitting?

Yep, still knitting this stranded snake of a scarf.  I started working with this yarn this time last year and I confidently predict that this time next year it will still be on my needles.  Of course what one needs to do if one is unable to get excited about a woolly project… is start another woolly project.  Here’s some crochet that has been occupying my evenings:

  1. As someone who is not very good at navigating but who absolutely does it by landmarks I agree. I love hexagons and think they would make a very good blanket, since you ask. But most of all I love the slow growing scarf and how it obviously loves lazing around on the wooden bench in the sunshine like a snake.
