Here's the news in brief - I'm finally feeling better. Hurrah - still a bit husky though. I quit my course and re-registered for a new one - what a huge sense of relief. I'm a brunette again - too shy to post pics - as I look like a gorgon in every single picture taken of me. Finally I posted new piccies of my most recent completed sock and my fingerless mittens. Loads of other stuff but I'll have to post that when I have more time.
