Having spent the better part of a week with this little lot
I have discovered that sometimes it really, really matters if your spirit level looks like this
If you have a shelf measuring 62 cm by 110 cm the spirit level being out by that small amount matters when it comes to fitting sliding doors.
In good, knitting-related news, my bag pattern seems to have been well-recieved (thank you for your kind words) as was this yarn I got in a swap on Ravelry:
You can see it reclining on my design notebook with not a care in the world!
Little does it know it’s going to be subjected to yet another of my attempts at a mystery lace knit along!
