luz interior, originally uploaded by irana.

I know I am seriously off the radar right now.

I'm not dead, or sick, or pregnant.

The computer is broken, and in the repair shop, and I have access to The Man's laptop for abut ten minutes a day. sigh.

I'll be back soon. I have a lot to share, and plenty of time to knit with no internet in the house.

I miss you all - more to come......

I don't know which particular strain of 'flu we've had at Casa Hyena this week, but whatever it is, it's taken both me and The Man through a hellish fever, chills and aches and swimming vision - three days in bed later and I'm only just coming up for air.

I've seen more than enough daytime television to last me the rest of my life, but the plus side is that I've had plenty of time to knit.

I'm so damn close to finishing my first PAIR of socks I can feel victory in the air:

Sock in progress

This photo is of the first one, but I'm that far done on the second now - just the toe decreases to go - how exciting!

I even wrote out the pattern as I went (not that it's very hard), so I can share it with anyone who might be interested. I want to write a few patterns that are good for beginners - something more interesting than plain socks, but not too complicated either - these ones fit the bill just right.

Perfect sick day knitting.

Give me a few more days to get some exuberance back, and I'll have more to share..... in the meantime, fellow Aussies, don't let the winter get you down....

love to all
