I'm going to go to the guild this weekend though no matter what, I need the break and I'm going to spin some more of my natural brown English Leicester for the sheep pillow.
Oh, and I got an email this morning to tell me I've won a pattern from Anke from a competition on the Knitting with Olof blog. I'm choosing Same Same but Different which is a nice basic 4-ply cardigan pattern. One of those "wear everywhere" patterns.
Oh, and on the way home from school this morning I noticed someone climbing in a window of a house, luckily I had my cell on me so called 111. The police arrived before their callcentre had even finished taking my details. It turned out to be relatively innocent (guy described as dodgy, but had a good reason to be there that checked out), I was glad to find out it was ok in the end and the police thanked me for calling them. First time I've called them for years when it's not related to Ian! Last time was over 10 years ago for a domestic disturbance.
