Cricket and socks

Renee said that I should knit things for myself to represent people. My god, brilliance! I am doing that sort of. The sock yarn I dyed before I got here is my Truck yarn. The website is pink and blue, so the sock will be pink and blue. I was going to start them as soon as I got here, but I think I'm going to see if I can just do them in the weekend. I'm only going to be able to do little footie things I think, because I only dyed one skein of yarn.
Not much is going on here right now. Joe and Chris are playing cricket. I watched for a bit, but it's really hot and extremely dull, so I left halfway through. They won't be done for a few hours yet. Edmund and Deborah (the parents) have left to go for tea at a friend's house, and Robin is at a wedding. I might go back to the cricket match later, when it cools down and knit a bit. Only Joe is playing, so I can bug Chris to explain what's going on. One of the annoying things about being in England is that everyone assumes that I'm American, even though I'm not. But they assume because I sound like I'm American. Then when they find out that I'm Canadian, they inevitably ask if I say aboot. I don't know that I've actually ever met anyone that says aboot. It's a completely unfounded steriotype. Bloody Hell. Anyway, that's the end of my rant. I'm going to start my Fleece Artist socks. I might have to surf around to find a pattern to do them in. I don't know if I want to do the standard one that's printed on the back.
