A cold, windy and wet day out there.

Last week, the knitting bug returned after an absence of...a couple of years, I think. The last time I recall actually caring about the craft was in 2011, when I was in hospital and was also newly separated from my spouse in traumatic circumstances. I was knitting a lace scarf for a neighbour because I knew I'd not be likely to see her again once I moved out of my then home.

So I've been knitting like a mad knitting thing this last few days, but now my hands and arms have packed it in. Not full-on pain, as such. More clumsiness. They can't be bothered doing any delicate micro-movements.


The sudden return of the knitting bug might have something to do with the fact that last week I also signed onto Netflix. It's just arrived in Australia, comes with the first month free, and my broadband provider has an unmetered content deal. So I have lots of TV to watch, I am without a lover and I am without an active addiction to cigarettes...I need something else to do with my hands.

I'm not sure I'll stick with Netflix though. They have enough stuff to keep me entertained for my free month, but the range is actually pretty small.

The range is small - but could you manage to watch everything you want within the month? I'm thinking we will probably pay for 1 or 2 extra months and see what they've added then.

Special endorsement: Daredevil is fabulous!

If you have a knitting bug, then I really think that Foo needs one of these for the upcoming cold weather. And yes, I expect a picture of her modelling it :-)

I've got a pattern for a knitted stuffed cat. Could be a lot less trouble than a live cat!
