Where’s Paul Daniels

Didn’t get to grips with magic circles
June, one of Mrs Johnson’s kindly knit and knatterers with the patience of a saint, came to my rescue and demonstrated magic circles. Umpteen times. I nodded knowingly, quietly hoping that, once home and with a glass of wine to hand, I’d remember how to start a magic circle.
June and Mrs Johnson’s right-hand woman, Charlene, deciphered a beanie hat pattern for me.
First, I hadn’t a clue how to interpret the instructions. Second, why is everything classed as “easy”? And third, who decides what’s easy?
Two hours later and I’ve got the gist of it – sort of.
Lovely creations by Mrs Johnson
and her merry band
of experienced knit and knatterers
I’m home now,
ready and prepared for the beanie hat project
and the magic circle
It’s all so easy!
But I need a glass of wine to start me off … … …
