It seems we're falling in a "gap" at the moment. After Pakjesavond we had a strange week. Everybody except my husband got ill - as there was an ugly flu going round. Wietse got a major asthma attack. It took me a couple of nights to get him back on track. I tried to get some medications for him, but failed, as the doctor was not planning to subscribe - she said: "scientifically it is not proven that these medications are working". Ok... prove me wrong, as I have two older sons with asthma, and I am having experience with these medications. It helped them. I am not stupid or so, but her refusal forced me to do it all by myself. And what is the result? One unhappy baby, refusing to eat and refusing to sleep. Mom having a sore throat, voice lost and tired, due to sleepless nights. I am not made of stone!

Ok... forgive my complaining mood.
What is happening on the knitting front? I've been working on tiny things, which I will show later - as it is a surprise for someone. Now I am working on a sock pattern for Susan at Crystal Palace Yarns and hopefully will get it ready before the end of the week. In the same time I am working on the second sock in Panda Wool (see picture in previous post) as I found the first one very comfortable. We're well on our way in building Friendly Socks book 3 and I have a couple of other things on the go as well.

On the other hand, the coming weeks will be exciting as well - my husband has to go up for exams tomorrow, and next week...

Now... where are my Christmas decorations? I'm glad the gift giving stuff is done for this year - have to send just a few things out and then I am done for this year.
I'm also expecting a few things to come in...it sure was fun to swap in 2007.

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Goddess. You are constantly giving and are unconcerned with reward, you simply want others to love knitting as much as you do. If someone wants to knit miles of novelty yarns, you are there for them. If someone wants to learn short row shaping, you can help. There are no taboos in knitting, only opportunities to grow. Everyone should have friend like you around if they want to learn to knit, and there's a good chance that your passion has rubbed off on a few others.http://marniemaclean.com
