Back at the K's house...
It's been a nail biting afternoon.
There has been some frantic knitting in the round.
Some double decreasing.
A little bit of hat surgery.
Some knotting of hands.
And then at approximately half past seven this evening our knubbelchen arrived.
Now for those of you who have never met a knubbelchen before there is one thing you should know.
They can be very naughty.
Immediately he danced up on to the fireplace to conspire with Mr Woodpecker.
I wonder what he wants to know?
This was followed by some frantic searching.
Until at last he seemed to be satisfied that he had found what he was looking for.
You've guessed it - knubbelchen's love a nibble.
And, after a bit of a struggle...
...he was in!
Still who could get cross with such a happy face?
So he stayed around to dance on the piano.
And sniff the flowers.
And tomorrow he will tinkle (only because he has a bell in his head you understand - he is not THAT naughty!) his way southwards to my new second cousin.
I do hope he will behave.
