The team weren't very successful losing many of their matches, but they have learned lots and will hopefully have a better season next year.
Mick has also started playing cricket again this year, something he hasn't done since before we met twenty three years ago. I've told him that he's too old to play now but he's having none of it. He plays in the B team and enjoys playing along side Daniel.

After this, I fancied having a go at knitting a pair of socks in the round. Mandy recommended I buy a sock kit from Get Knitted. The kit comprised a set of five double pointed kneedles, yarn, stitch markers, sewing needle and a basic sock pattern. Mandy offered to help with anything I got stuck with and gave me some tips to get me started. It was surprisingly easier than I thought it would be to knit with double pointed needles, though I did have a couple of mishaps along the way. I started off by knitting a pair of socks for myself, then a pair for Daniel and a pair for Eleanor.
Sorry about the picture of Daniel's socks. No matter how hard I try I can't get the photo to turn round but you get the idea.
I'm currently working on another pair of socks for Daniel and also a beret for Eleanor, the pattern and wool for this was supplied as a free gift in Let's Knit magazine.
I'm really enjoying knitting again and I'm sure it will be a good hobby for the winter months.
