Some updates

It’s my birthday today and I’m feeling lazy (and old), so only a very small post.

First up fruit flies.  I was sitting with my friend at the playground yesterday evening, watching our kids trying to kill themselves and discussing fruit flies (as you do), and she suggested using a solution of apple cider vinegar and washing up liquid in the trap, which apparently kills the flies stone dead.  I will combine this with the cling film method and report back.

untitledNext, one of Megan Not Martha’s lovely commenters has pointed out that there is a knitting pattern available HERE for yesterday’s ‘cappuccio‘. I would love to knit it, but don’t think it looks half as wonderful here as it does below.  Do you think it’s just because they’ve used an acrylic yarn? I think I will give it a go, but in merino or cashmere.  Can anyone recommend a fabulous merino or cashmere chunky weight yarn?  (Is chunky the same as aran weight in the UK?)

    Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!
    I lost track of your blog on my bookmarks,but I finally found it again. It has been fun catching up and seeing how big your little girl has gotten. When I commented on your blog in the past, I did not have a blog, but now I do. I’ve been at it since Feb., and it sure is a fun ride.
