Hi, I’m Mr Knitter, I am a Baron and a Reverend and live in the North of the UK with my Husband and two dogs, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Harper-Lee, and an English Springer Spaniel Mazikeen.

What a marvelous device it is too, even knows… Read More

Now don’t get me wrong, I had no problem with Him, but I just hated that everyone forgot about… Read More
