Tonight is for Sue. We found out earlier today the crushing news that she has breast cancer. Just six short years since her twin, Ali, died of stomach cancer. Mark says, wryly, that Ali always said that breast cancer was the boring variety but that he is pleased that is the case. Boring and treatable, please God. 

Sue says she wishes she could share it all with Ali. 

This is a very short piece of yarn that was saved during the great big clear out of Ali's things. I think her mum bought it for her at some Country Living fair or other. Ali got someone to make her a fabulous jumper out of it. And a teapot cosy I think too. It's bright and colourful and typical of the sort of thing she loved. I'd been saving it for something special.
