A few things have made me smile today.

1) The Very Hungry Caterpillar on Google to mark the first day of spring. A seminal work in picture book literature.

2) Learning what Norouz is via facebook. One of my friend's surname is very similar to Norouz so when she wrote Happy Norouz, followed by her sister commenting Happy 1388, my curiosity was piqued.

A quick search on the Very Hungry Caterpillar Google directed me to Wikipedia. I'm not going to explain it here, go and have a look for yourself. No? Well here's a picture to whet your interest.

3) My postman now knows I'm a knitter. I ordered some Lion Brand yarns from Banyan Tree Yarns a few days ago. When my parcel arrived yesterday it was already open with 2 balls missing. I got in touch with Banyan Tree and they were so helpful, sending out replacement yarns straight away.

They arrived today. I had a chat with the postie about the opened parcel, asking him if he knew anything, he's a really nice bloke. We finished our chat with him saying, you're doing lots of knitting aren't you. He has no idea...

Happy Spring Equinox, Happy Nowruz, Happy Knitting.
