...bad Lini!

Yes, I know I said I'd be here every day this week, but due to unforseen Mark related circumstances, I couldn't be here yesterday. He has man-flu, and since I had nothing better to do, I thought I'd spend the day looking after him because I AM the best girlfriend in the world.
I think he's feeling a little better today, but is still off work because he's trying to be better for tomorrow- he has a union training day that won't be available for another six months if he misses this one, and we've got tickets to go see Roots Manuva at the Camden Koko that night too! Everyone send healing vibes his way.

As a gift for my knitty friends, here's a lovely pattern. If you're feeling generous, you can make one for me, lol! ;)
I don't know if you have to be registered or not... sorry. Yes I know it's strange me getting the Knitting Daily newsletter, but ocasionally they do have crochet stuff!

I'm making a new collarette at the moment from wool that used to be a poncho mother made me. I decided that since I never wear it, I'd rather pull it out and remake it. She was a bit miffed at first (I think she thought I didn't like it anymore) but she kinda got my logic after a bit of explaining. I think it's a Rowan wool... bearing in mind it was bought and poncho-d about three years ago, I could be wrong...

Anyway, I've got something on the hook again (not including my half done armlets- I'm going to run out of wool at any minute and I don't want to go buy more) so I don't need new patterns for a while, woo! Although I could do with some ideas as to what to make from the lovely red/purple wool I got from Caroline in my red RAK... anyone?

Is man boy feeling any better and when do you start to work?

Knitty is a great source and they DO have crochet patterns as well.
