The little jacket is finished, at least the knitting part is, it still needs blocking and ends need to be sewn in. Vicki asks what it the make and number of the pattern. It is an old Patons pattern no. 250, dating probably from the 1950s or 60s. It was one of a series of Patons patterns featuring designs by Spanish designer Carmen Castresana. All are in 2 or 3ply and generally speaking quite intricate lace patterns. I already possessed one of these and now have nearly the whole series thanks to Ebay.
For a little relaxation a sock is in progress.
My mother managed to fall getting out of bed the other night and now insists on sleeping in the chair, and is actually sleeping very well. The doctor has prescribed stronger pain killers which have made her more comfortable, and I have my bed back which has made me more comfortable!
And finally, this was the magnificent sunset we had the other evening.

Thanks for the pattern info! The search begins...
Sorry to hear about your mum's fall and I hope she is soon feeling a lot better.
