It was a week without planned hospital appointments, but FL's gory eye took us to the Haematology Waiting Room after his podiatry (pedicure!) appointment, just to be on the safe side. They had promised me on the phone it would be a "quick check", and indeed it was... except we were made to wait 2 hours to be seen. Steam was billowing from FL's ears when the doctor who had kept him waiting simply looked at his eye and said: "You've seen an optician? Oh, that's fine then... " His frustration came from the realisation that we had been waiting for the same doctor who had spent the afternoon pottering around the chemo room offering cups of tea to patients. I was watching her and I did wonder... but assumed she couldn't be the one we were waiting to see. Ha!
Time Turner Mitt. You are supposed to duplicate stitch "H" in that framed section. That would be "H" for "Hermione" or "Hogwarts".
I intend to make it "L" on this one, and "R" on the other one. Think about it...
Narcissa sock is done except for the toe. I paused to check the foot length, so this will be the work of an evening to finish.
I have not touched my Mermaid's Song shawl or my blanket.
But I finished my cardigan!
I have at least two new projects on their way to the needles. I already mentioned my intention to knit Lush using 2 colours of SkeinQueen Voluptuous. The cunning plan is to somehow merge the colours below the yoke, so that it is not too jarring a transition. I am thinking of some crafty colourwork along the lines of the Katie Sweater or the Hiro cardigan.

Ingot by Lisa Mutch. I have a Christmas recipient in mind, but am hesitating over my choice of yarn, as I am short of yardage. The pattern looks adjustable, but I don't want the finished object to look shrunken. A lot of this object's appeal lies in its generosity. So I continue to ponder.
