The first bug sock is finished, and I've found my sock blockers! That's the good bug and here's a couple of photo's
Bad bugs: Ian has yet another bug, he's been off school today, let him play on the computer as he's just not feeling well. He's got a bit of a temperature, coughing and has been suffering from a gassy tummy with some pain as well. Doctor has checked him out and reckons it's viral, I have a antibiotic prescription for just in case, if he's not improving by Thursday then it's likely gone bacterial so I fill it then. I'm not expecting to have to do that though. In the meantime I'm busy working to try and get the stuff my boss gave me on Friday finished.
One good thing happened today though, I had won a hank of Madelinetosh sock yarn in Scarlet last week on a NY blog PhotoKnitDog. It arrived really quickly, was in the mailbox today which made me feel a little better. I also won a download of the latest Knitcircus; as I'd already bought it I gave it to Joanne. Some lovely stuff in this one, which is why of course I bought it! I can't give you a photo of the second win, but here's the first, it's beautiful!
My latest purchase was from Vintage Purls, some laceweight in the limited edition colourway Mother of Pearl
Won't be able to do a lot of knitting on Saturday, going to Ashburton for our nephews birthday party. Assuming that Ian's well enough of course. Not much on Thursday either, Ian had better be back at school then as George has his appointment at Mental Health to be assessed for Aspergers. If Ian's still sick then Thomas will have to take the afternoon off work to look after him.
