gawd my main computer has been a right old pain tonight so I am now on the lap top ... no knitting patterns tonight (I know you will all be sooo disappointed) ........ also because it is so late there is nothing fancy attached ......

However, my cousin sent me this most fabulous link to photos of the spider that was in Liverpool. They are sensational

Enjoy (hopefully normal service will be resumed tomorrow ... fingers crossed)

My cousin became a bit of a spider groupie this weekend (his words not mine lol)

But how cool are those photos ... I want to do photos like that :(

I have been reading about this spider in papers oflate, the slide show was fascinating. I always get envied myself when I see people taking pictures with such professionalism but then I calm down thinking that I have a long life ( I hope so.lol) to learn and experiment.;)
