Thing 2: I saw this pattern on Jo's blog - through the keyhole - the other day and decided to make myself some. When I went up to the sewing room last night to get some black buttons for eyes, the jar of "googly eyes etc" just seemed to jump out at me. I am extremely happy with these! I suspect I'll have to knit at least one more pair!
Thing 3: This afternoon I'm singing in a Christmas concert. I've looked out my "uniform" and ironed the shirt collar to make sure it sits properly. All I have to do now is remember my words! Wish me luck!
