1. KnitNation is being held at Imperial College, London, where I and many of the other mostly female participants are staying in dorm rooms. It was as I was settling in to mine that I realized the connection:
It’s a knitting Gaudy!! At least the baths are en suite these days (and no, I don’t plan to wear either academic robes or a dog collar).
2. I am in London and I can’t drink beer! *Not* an acceptable state of affairs. Fortunately I think that prohibition goes with the fever/cough medicine (paracetemol and codeine, aka Europe’s version of Tylenol 3). My fever was gone this morning; if I’m not coughing much when I wake up I think it’s time to go cold turkey.
