The Librarian

Morning fresh "Wodehouse Playhouse"

P.G. Wodehouse died between the first and second series of "Wodehouse Playhouse" so this is the first episode to lack his introduction; the show's opening titles were altered to include footage of Wodehouse at his typewriter so that his presence at the beginning was maintained.

Series 2, episode 1: "Anselm Gets His Chance" (guest spot by Desmond Llewelyn, the original "Q" from the Bond films)

The Librarian

Loot!

Made it up to the first Calgary Fibre Arts Fair today ... not a huge event but gotta support and encourage these things in their infancy if one wants to them to happen bigger and better on a regular basis. Came home with the obligatory souvenir tote bag and purchased goodies from local artisans: a set of eight handmade ceramic buttons (which by pure chance match rather nicely to one of the skeins of yarn I picked up) and, from left to right, two skeins of Ancient Arts 4 Ply Fingering/Sock (100% Bluefaced Leicester Wool) in "Cherry Custard" and "Pysanky" colourways and two skeins of Dragonfly Dyewerx Merino DK (100% Merino Wool) in "Purple Wurple". The Ancient Arts brand is new to me; I've knitted a cravat-length scarf from Dragonfly Dyewerx so know how lovely it is to work with (plus I'm a sucker for a really good purple and these skeins are FAR more intense than the camera shows ... so vivid I'm amazed they aren't causing me to see afterimages when I look away from them)
