We make a Channel 4 makeover show called ’10 Ye@rs Younger’ where we make people over to help them look 10 ye@rs younger. One contributor we have is in her 50s but dresses in her 70s, and we are looking to film a group of women in their 60s-70s and get 3 women to dress in her clothes to shock her and make her see that she dresses at least a decade too old for her age. How old are the women in your knit group and would you be willing to help us out with our filming? If you are I would love to speak with you in more detail as soon as possible.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Researcher's skills obviously don't include letter writing. Or accurate researching.

(The @ is to trick pesky search engines.)

that's hilarous, what did you reply with?

I got one of those, too. I wasn't impressed with her research skills, either.

Think you should invite her along, just so she can see who really knits these days ...!

Good grief!

I got that one too. Is that really who they think are knitting these days? I sort of let her have it...in a nice way.

That is so funny! I'm completely dumbstruck, I had no idea that people still harboured those beliefs...

Wow. Do you think she knows television is now in colour?

Well at least she left you some kisses!
