......but a bum knee will do it every time!
I'm still confined to quarters with a dodgy chest, but I've now added an arthritic knee which has stopped me getting online - I couldn't sit at the laptop for long enough. However, gentle pottering around the bungalow is having the desired effect, and I can now bend it again.
Well, I had a splendid Christmas. The Beamish Boy came to stay for a whole week, and also cooked a lovely Christmas dinner, as usual. He's a bit of a star :)
Mum bought me 'The Opinionated Knitter' by Elizabeth Zimmermann, which is wonderful. I love EZ - her attitude to knitting is so inspiring. Plus she writes such sensible patterns - for a polo neck, she suggests 'Work P2, K2 until you are sick of it'. Isn't that the way we all do it? :)
I got a variety of books and audio books, plus smellies and chocs. How well my family knows me!
We also had beautiful, thick snow, which looked amazing. Of course, I could enjoy looking at it, safe in the knowledge that I wouldn't have to go out in it!
Nothing from me in Knitting this month, but I think I have two in the next issue. I also have 3 lined up for Simply Knitting - details as I know them.
I'm glad to be back, anyway. I hope it won't be too long before I post again. Happy New Year, everyone!
