Umm - I'm the one responsible for the ad! I had to research little known facts about sitters in the collection. It made me giggle so much to be able to get knitting into the campaign. Although I did try not to get them to say he was actually a knitter, there's no evidence that he was.

Well done Anna for being the one who did that ad! Its great!
I love your socks Sarah and the Baktus looks nice in the yarn you are using.

Good job, Anna! and thank you, Sarah, for posting about it.
