So, I disclocated my left knee yesterday on the way to work.

I'm fine, it popped right back in, but I've been ordered to rest.

To me, reating is all about knitted slippers, sock monkey pyjamas, Doris Day films and cracking on with my zigzag blanket.

Knitting has really fallen by the wayside lately, I'm all about the crochet. I may need to force myself to put the zigzag away later, as the other half's socks aren't going to knit themselves.

These were suposed to be socks for my man, but the crappy yarn knotted itself into a real mess and I was worried that there wouldn't be enough for his substantial tootsies.

Pattern is the simple ribbed sock from Spun magazine, it's well-written and unfussy. I've just started my second pair, in the lovely sock yarn from Garn Studios. These ones should reach their intended recipients, if the yarn gods are willing.
