    Knitting.... I ask you, what kind of psychopath invents a 'craft' where you wave sharp sticks in front of your eyes?

    After a week of my cussing and the wife in fits of laughter watching me knit, made from the finest Wilco garden string I present the latest addition to the Otzi Gucci collection.

    It's got the odd hole in it where I dropped a stitch and the rows are occasionally uneven where somehow I added one or two extra loops but overall I'm chuffed. What do you think, should I do another one?

    I haven't knitted since I was wee. There is definitely a bit of skill gone into making that. Well done
