panad, thank you for asking. You know when people say, “I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus”? That’s exactly how I feel! My bumps and bruises are sore but tolerable, but my arm is agony - I’m not sure if it’s the fracture or the torn ligament but either way, it really hurts!

Still, I’m feeling very grateful to have two functioning legs so I’m getting outdoors for a walk every day. There’s nothing bad that couldn’t be worse.

I did attempt to do a row of knitting yesterday but it was a no, I can’t bend my elbow. It’s going to be a mad panic to get circa 20 hats knit in time for Christmas for dad’s carers!

I think that’s probably the route I’ll have to take, HB. I haven’t completely abandoned hope yet, but I’ve only knit 6 so far so it feels like misplaced optimism!

Socks finished! Realised on attempt 2 at the toes on the second sock that I *had* decreased correctly, I then didn't arrange the stitches correctly on the needles before doing the Kitchener stitch...

They are very lovely Jen. I’ve made that exact mistake before, but with socks I’ve decided.. No ripping back… they are only socks and a good place to make mistakes.

Oh also .. beware of the Rowan site with an excellent Black Friday sale.

It’s been an expensive evening here.
