Green Spider, Gold Fish and Multicoloured Flares

1    Our Black Swan Iris has been broken by the wind so I have brought it inside and this morning found a pretty green spider and her web on it.

3   I was asked the other day how long I have been knitting. My Granny taught me when I was about seven or eight but I didn’t really knit until I was expecting my first baby. I remembered that I still have my masterpiece from that time, 1973, a pair of patchwork flares that our Number 1 baby wore at one year old.
