I've just discovered that the email address I use for this blog has died a sad death - humble apologies if you have emailed me and I appeared to have ignored you! It was not intentional! I have substituted my general all-purpose email which I promise I check faithfully daily - so it definitely does work! Would love to hear from you!!

I got home from a staff meeting at lunch time to find an envelope with a Patons knitting booklet and some lovely new 4mm needles - just what I needed too! My favourite size 4mm are quite bent from use. I'm not sure what it is I do to knitting needles but the ones I use the most are quite wonky! It's amazing I manage to knit anything straight on them. I got these goodies because I've had a letter and pic published in Simply Knitting - and do you know the sad thing? I don't even have the magazine yet. It used to be sold by my local newsagent AND my local Waitrose but they both - in the same week - stopped stocking it and have some or other knitting mag I've not heard of and don't want. Living in the centre of London, you'd think it would be easy for me to pick up any magazine I want. In fact, I'm going to have to walk for 25 minutes towards Holborn Circus before I find a WHSmith big enough that actually stocks Simply Knitting. (But then, the stock every magazine in the known universe, so it's a sure bet to go there.) Why has Simply Knitting become so hard to find? Are they not one of the biggest knitting mags in the UK??
The solution of course is to get a subscription, but I've already had a subscription and cancelled it. For some reason, the magazine is a whole lot better when I have to go out and physically buy it. Weird.....
