Building blocks

I really must be becoming a little, just a little you understand, obsessed with this knitting lark!

Let me explain... I hate, loathe, detest, call it what you will, that awful job that starts with an I and uses a hot implement to get creases out of clothes. From here on in, it will be called "The job that must not be named". Because I hate it so much, it also follows that I hate anything to do with it, i.e The Iron and the Ironing Board!

I really must be going mad because our old Ironing Board got thin and wobbly so we bought a new one. Normally I would have taken great pleasure in throwing the old one on the tip but I've kept it to use for blocking! Me?? Block?? Yes, that's right folks, Jane's marbles have left the building!!

Not only that, but the only thing I have to use for spritzing the items to be blocked is the Iron!! I guess it's good that these implements of torture are getting some use!!

LOL! As long as you're not putting pin sharp creases into jeans, I think it comes under 'acceptable use'!
