I have been busy joining as I also joined the Lime & Violet Sock Marathon. This is a Flickr group and the idea is to see how far you can knit your sock yarn. I have 5.4miles of sock yarn but that doesn't count my recently purchased Lime & Violet and Violet's Pink Ribbon from Lisa Souza, which I am waiting to be delivered. It will be cool to see how far I get in three months.

On a sock theme I also joined Socktopia, each month three themes are given and you chose one knit a pair pf socks around it.

The Wicked sweater is going really well, I am just starting the waist decreases. I will get a progress shot over the weekend. I should get some done tomorrow as I am meeting up with a uni friend to teach her to knit. Wish me luck!

I was tagged by Stephanie so here goes:

The Page 123 Meme
1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, look down to the 5th sentence.
3. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Include the title and the author's name.
5. Tag 3 People.

"Antiretroviral therapy may be initiated for maternal indications depending on clinical, immunological and virological assessment. Although Zidovudine is the only drug licensed for use in pregnancy, current US guidelines suggest combination therapy should be used."

Clinical Medicine by Kumar & Clark - Ch.1 infectious Disease, Tropical Medicine & STD's/

I use my desk for my studying so all the books around me are science/medical.
