Things to Stop the Draught

One - another Holden shawlette.  The pictures are not good, I'm afraid - the colour is off, and I was unable to block the shawlette properly - I really need a big board or something, an ironing board is nowhere near big enough.  I gave it a bit of a steam, but it is a bit wonky now!

In close-up you can see I couldn't pin out the picots...

I'll have to find a way to do it properly, but this is not the moment - I'm booked in for a biopsy tomorrow and am not sure how long I'll take to recover from that as it involves a general anaesthetic.

Two - to pass the time without too much strain I'm crocheting a draught excluder for Giles...

...it looks a bit strange at present without its stuffing, but I like the colour combination...

...and so does he, fortunately!
