Errr…..?

It comes to something when I find myself pining for the good old days of lockdown 2020, but 2022 is turning out to be far more scary.

And on that note I feel I ought to update my blog with a fresh knitting pattern person…

Meanwhile, hope to see you same time next week 🙂

      Nick – I have no idea why he is flirting with the bathtub with all his clothes on – maybe he is scrubbing the scum line – jolly good chap if he is.

        No, I think he’s so confumbled at the early-Monday nonsense he’s mistaken the shower handset for his telephone. I hope he doesn’t get his ‘spenders all tangled in the tapware!

      Batarde – Oh my goodness, I remember single glazed bathrooms – freezing – in and out pretty fast and no queuing! It’s a lovely vest, I wonder if he has matching pants?

      Looby – True – but there is a big difference in price between the ones from Fired Earth, and the ones from B&Q. Mine are from B&Q! My knickers from M&S and not knitted by an artisan camping out on Dartmoor. Sadly.

    Don’t twist your knickers in a knot.
    My limited time in the UK and Ireland left me with a limited British vocabulary.
    One of my favorite expression was “knock me up in the morning”.
    So I don’t recall knit underwear being a thing here in the States. Is underclothes just an old way of saying underwear? Also when does knit underclothes become a jumper?

      Bill – I remember people saying ‘knock me up in the morning’ – apparently back in the days of yore people were employed as knocker-uppers and would physically knock on front doors to wake people up. The alarm clock put them all out of work.
      When do knitted underclothes become jumpers – I’m putting my money on thickness of the wool.

      Mistress B – I know – odd – why would any knickers make anyone sing like a lark?? at any time of the day, for that matter.
      I liked the early camaraderie of lockdown. Today I just feel sick.

    Here we’d call it an undershirt or more vulgarly a “wife-beater”. To me, it looks as if he’s wearing a sweater vest or as y’all call them a jumper. (ok, if I’m totally wrong regarding the definition of the word, please let me know.) xoxo

      Savvy – ‘Sweater vest’ – yes I’ve heard Americans use that term, and I’ve been confused by it. I think we call them ‘Pull-overs’, or ‘Tank-Tops’. A vest with sleeves is called a Jumper. All very confusing!!

      Kylie – A Singlet!! Now this word brings to my mind damsels in distress, and medieval knights! But my mind is obviously very silly.
      Agreed, I wear a vest as the top half of pyjamas in summer.
