This afternoon Charlotte came round, resplendent in orange and pink, colours that I recall were predominant in her degree show. Just what a gloomy afternoon required.
She showed me how to cast on with needles, rather than with my thumb, and discussed the knitting-up qualities of different types of wool mixes. We dipped into the internet to compare prices and admire the lovely Japanese yarns.
Later we ate huge amounts of spaghetti bolognaise with hidden vegetables, and Charlotte had a second helping.
Neither of us needed to do this:
And after dinner we sat peaceably in armchairs, chatting and reading crochet and knitting books, like two companionable nanas, about 37 years between us in age, surrounded by little animals, the house warm and cosy.
A very pleasant way to spend time together.
