On the needles this week is an ever growing sock shared last week I have turned the heal, rejoined  and am working on the foot part.  I have cast on the other sock as I find knitting the cuff fairly tedious.  When I can swop between the two it feels quicker!  I am also still working on the jacket shared a couple of weeks ago, I have now completed the back, left front and half the right front.  I hope I can get it finished before the temperatures warm up!

I had a knitting related injury this week.  I managed to stand on my knitting with bare feet, I did not realise that is what I had stepped on but it hurt like mad.  When I looked down I saw, to my horror, that the needle was stuck in my foot!  So, never leave your knitting on the floor where you are likely to be walking in bare feet.

I am still reading and enjoying The Shock Doctrine.  It continues to terrify and engage me.

Joining in with Tami for this weeks WiP Wednesday and Ginny for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading.


  1. Stab wounds are the worst. Make sure it is healing otherwise see a doctor. The socks look great!

  9. Oh my goodness, I hope your knitting injury gets better and I will make sure not to walk on my needles :) Love the socks!!

  10. Two socks at the same time is great idea.
    OUCH with the knitting injury! Unfortunately you are not the first person I have read this happening to. I hope it heals quickly x

  11. Hope your foot is healing nicely, I reckon that must go down in history as THE worst form of knitting injury!
