Then when you're fighting off the lurgy to knit a bacteria to make you feel better!
My son adores and collects Giant Microbes - he has loads of them, he writes comics about their super hero adventures, so when I saw this pattern online - I couldn't resist!
The pattern can be found via http://loxosceles.org or (I think) via Ravelry. It took just over an hour to make and has been named Fiddly - cos when J asked what I was knitting I answered "Something fiddly!" The pattern isn't at all difficult - just a tad 'fiddly' to begin with.
I used 3.25mm dpns and some DK weight that I had hand dyed with KoolAid.
J thinks he is cool! That makes me a happy Mum - I foresee more of these in my future - maybe Xmas stocking fillers?
I also finished sock 1 of M's Lozenge Socks last night - time to cast on for number 2.
