Tea-drinker par excellence

Hair of a Dog

There was some discussion at work about knitting from dog's hair which lead us to a French person who will spin your dog's hair into wool for €11 per 50g ball.

Here's another site with some items knitted from this wool, next to the dog whose fur it was.

For some reason I can't quite fathom, some people find it disgusting. I'm not sure why. I mean, if I were talking about roast suckling pug, fair enough, but just the wool? Where's the beef?

London and the Single Person

Graham Walmsley has a house share lined up in North London and is looking for someone to share with. I've been to the house and it's a nice one, near the Victoria Line and other amenities. It has a small garden with decking if you like reading outside, a decent kitchen and a largish living/dining room. Better still Graham says that the "rent is cheap".

If you're interested, drop me (or him) a line.
