I have been doing lots of crochet.  I made a cushion, which is on our sofa, and a long scarf, which I think I shall keep for myself, and I made

a little bag and IT Watson a yellow hat with tassels.  I think I like crochet better than knitting, so far; it is less cumbersome too hold a hook than the needles, and takes up less space in bed (which I have tried), or with someone on your knee (which I haven’t tried) .  So now I have indulged in some nice posh cotton yarn to make a different design of cushion, which John might like to take to work.
