In some rather annoying news, I have been ORDERED by my physiotherapist to *limit* my knitting time to 10 - 15 minutes a DAY. Is he insane? Back spasms be damned, I need to knit.

Oh and I suppose I should have mentioned in yesterday's post that the Irish Hiking Scarf is for a friend of the male gender. Not me. Feel free to change your vote if need be.
