Hmm, the new NHS computer system is behaving in silly fashion. I wonder if that explains the sudden increase in the ENT waiting list? Anyway, my tonsils have gone on a celebratory jolly after learning of yesterday's (hopefully temporary) reprieve. Yes, I have tonsillitis AGAIN! Monkey is still trying to be helpful and offering to take them out for me:
I'm not sure what purpose the banana is meant to serve. Is it Roald Dahl's "Boy" where the older brother gets his tonsils taken out on the kitchen table? Or did I imagine it? Haven't read it since primary school. Anyway, I have pointed out to Monkey that we don't have a kitchen table, so he can't take them out...
And a neighbour's cat dropped round to keep me company:
I'm not sure where it lives, but I didn't let it stay too long (don't want it get funny ideas about where it lives). Well, I do, but cat-napping is a very bad thing to do. Obviously. Ahem.
And WIP finishing is on a roll! I finished Hedera:
This is the Hedera sock pattern from Knitty. Yarn used is Trekking XXL in colour 12 (from my SP6 exchange partner, Amy, last year) using 2.25mm needles. I seem to have been knitting these for ages as I was doing them on holiday in June, but I got distracted by some other things, like moving house! The yarn isn't quite as variegated as it appears in the above pic!
Also, I took part in a discussion about ethical yarn sourcing on the Knittyboard a few weeks ago and now Tara (who runs a online shop called "Blonde Chicken Boutique" has started up a Google group to carry on talking about ethical crafting ideas. If anybody wants to read more, or to join, the link is here. It's very quiet at the moment...
