Tying the knot... (Crochet content!)

Q.
What on earth is Graham doing

putting a tie on

on what must be one of the hottest days of the year?


A. He is showing what a devoted husband he is by modelling the tie I've crocheted him to celebrate the fact that, two years ago today, we "tied the knot" at Cambridge Register Office.

The yarn is Jaeger baby merino 4-ply (formerly cream but now green burgundy and indigo after a dyeing session at Liz's) and the pattern came from one of those ancient Patons crochet brochures. I'm not sure that the tapering at the point is ideal, and I hope that wet pressing will cure it, but I could not face the iron this afternoon!

We've celebrated with a delicious meal and a few glasses of wine, and Graham has uttered his inevitable pun: "Anniversary? Don't you mean "Any worse-ery?"
