What could be better?.......

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 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.
