men in uniform

People that have seen me in action at shows know that I will stop anyone passing if they can knit..

Please if you do see me in action dont ask if I have a thing about men in uniform (especially if they are a very dishy medic and I am still trying to talk to them....)

Yes, I did go red, and so did he - and I didn't get to find out if he could knit....

And no, I dont have a thing about men in uniform as a general rule, but rules are made to be broken..

We had another talkative day at the show. I supported Silkwood by buying a couple of socks (or rather the makings of..)

And now I'm going to try and see how fast I can knit a sock in readiness for the sock pentathlon that starts at the begining of March, 5 pairs of socks, two months to knit each, and points awarded for how quickly you can post completed photos on line - see group on Ravelry if you are interested in joining me - all patterns are free and you get to keep your socks (bonus !!)

2 months to knit each pair of socks? I might just be able to manage that! Think I'll go and take a look..

Do men in white coats count as men in uniform? (Only kidding!)

Off to check out the sock pentathlon now.

I love men in uniform. I accidentally set off my smoke alarm and got a fire engine full of hunky men at my door! No I didn't do it on purpose but then I might just take up smoking and stand under it in a couple of weeks! I am quite slow at knitting socks so have started a crochet pair instead.
