View Full Version : Explaining swatches!

01-26-2006, 07:03 AM
Last night I was at my new drama group and during other people's auditions I pulled out my needles and carried on with a new swatch I'm current swatch-ing. :XX:

Many people asked me what I was making and i launched into "well, i will be making a hat for my nephew, but this is a swatch to measure the guage of the wool I'm using..."

The glazed looks after "but this is a swatch..." were common. But when I just answered "A hat for my nephew," people looked at me like I was mental - "It's going to be a bit small, isn't it?"

From now on, I'll just answer "nothing much..."

Last Panto in Little Grimley! 8-)

It;s a comedy about a small (and rubbish) am-dram group who decide buck the traditional panto trend - the director writes his own sex panto loosely based on "Puss in Boots."

Thankfully, you don't see any of the sex bits!! :blush:
