They say that nothing is perfect, but some things are so good that it’s not worth trying to improve on them. My list would include:

A colander – totally fit for purpose and visually satisfying;

BBC Radio 4’s A History of the World in 100 Objects – back on air this week – hooray!

and the Yarn Harlot’s post about watching your children set off for the other side of the world (thank you, Felix).

So I am not even going to attempt to describe how I felt when this beautiful, brainy, funny and incredibly loving young woman boarded a plane for New Zealand on Thursday.

If you want to know – and especially if you think you might have to do this kind of a goodbye any time soon – go and read the Yarn Harlot link.

The knitters among you might just be able to spot that in the picture above she is wearing a Central Park Hoodie.  It was far too hot for an aran-weight sweater in the UK but she indulged me for a few modelling shots. This one below is rubbish, but it does at least prove that I finished it in time (with just hours to spare, actually).

Have a great time, Miriam!
