Erm … Mum? Hi! How ya doin’? You don’t normally read my blog, but just in case you’re here out of boredom or for whatever reason, erm … can I kindly suggest that you sling your hook? Thanks! Love you!
Now, for everyone else …

Fantastic pattern; really well written and simple. I struggled to work the set-up rows, but once I got into the rhythm, it was great.
My mum usually wears a long Pashmina-type scarf which conviniantly drapes itself into everything. This scarf is a present so she no longer has to suffer from Pashmina-flavoured potatoes.
