There's a really cute picture of Nagayan-san and Miura-kun here. I'm glad other people read his blog too. :)

I've been so busy with preparations for the concert recently, I'd quite forgotten I was meant to give a three minute speech on my country today! So, I got up at 6.30 today and managed to get it done just in time for the tea & speech meeting at 10.00am. It wasn't very good because my teacher corrected it heavily and I would have to pause every sentence and try to figure out where the rest of the sentence had gone. My own damn fault, really!

Still, a number of people came up to me afterwards and said they liked it. And, of course, the Anglophiles told me how much they liked my country. I had lunch afterwards with one such lady and my teacher, who confessed she loved Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie and custard cream.

(I was wearing nice clothing today because of this and the cat has completely chewed throught my sleeves and essentially ruined a nice top. Unless anyone knows how to repair a thin loose-knit sweater-y thing? Need to wash the kitty-saliva out first though... *deep sigh*)

    Don't know if you are a friend of 2metaldog or not, but she may have a suggestion or 2 as she knits sweaters & such. In such cases I typically look for any remaining threads & using a crochet hook &/or reg. needle try to work the threads back into the original pattern as inconspicuously as possible. Guess it depends on how lg the hole is & how much is left in that area.

    Understand re the speech thing. Most of my screw ups are the result of my own forgetfulness or procrastination...

    I don't know her at all, unfortunately. ^^ I don't know how to knit, so that's definitely a bit of a problem. I suppose I could try and sew it together, but it needs to be cleaned because the whole sleeve is literally covered with kitty saliva. ^^

    Thanks for the help!

    You may want to check out her fics on mac_lynn's site. Here's the link.


    I highly recommend her Sharp & Guilty Pleasure arc which is then continued in her Light & Shadow arc. You may also enjoy her FF8 arc & some of her shorts.

    Hmm, not knitting does pose a bit of a problem. Know anyone around there that know how to do that kind of work? In the end, the size of the hole & how much thread you have to work w/ will end up being the deciding factor. Good Luck!
