My knee is feeling better and have just taken off my huge bandage. The doctor has said that I need to rest it and am having the stitches taken out in two weeks. Am hobbling along for now but it should soon get better. I think I'll stick with knitting for week or so!
Have been knitting a baby blanket and it is so nice! I am using some very nice Debbie Bliss wool called cashmerino aran. I have not used very much Debbie Bliss wool as mainly use Rowan but I love the colours I am using and the softness of it is lovely! It is also a very easy knit. I know I should finish a project before I start planning my next but I have found a nice pattern for an embroidery in a Cath Kidston book. Here is a picture of the blanket.
Reporting from A and E as have a sewing needle in my knee! Don't know how long it has been in there but became infected. We thought it was a little piece of dirt but NO! Sewing does have it's consequences! Am going to have an general anaesthetic. Have been here since 7.45 and it is now 3.30. Have moved from 1st to 4th on the list. This is going to be a long day!

Just had a week skiing in Alp d'huez.I was knitting away secretly in my spare time making a hat for my dads birthday. I just managed to finish it in time for the big day. My dad wore it the next day on the way to the airport. The wool was so nice!It was called rowan lima. So soft!:) I am just about to start a lovely moss stitch baby blanket for a new born baby. Daddy said - "I love it! Better than anything you'd get at the shops! Perfect fit too!"
