Camouflage Socks

I finished yet another pair of socks for Hubs, these ones are Bernat Sox in camouflage. I basically did vanillas, but instead of another pair in just stockinette I did 4x1 rib instead and did a garter stitch edge on the sides of the heel. These ones were started on April 26 and finished on May 6. Ravelry details here.
This was the Littlest One yesterday morning on his way to school, being all cool and gangsta in his hat. This cheerfulness didn't last long. I got a call at noontime that he was feeling like he was going to be sick. His teacher said one of the other classrooms had 11 kids out yesterday. Anyhoo, I went and got him, and by mid afternoon the puking began. He couldn't keep anything down, not even water. I finally conned him into taking some liquid Gravol, but that only stayed down for about half an hour. Nanny and Grampy dropped him off some ginger ale and potato chips on their way home from the grocery store. He ate a handful of chips, fell asleep, woke up an hour later and threw them up. He had a rough night, but fortunately the vomitting stopped, but he kept waking up, crying, that he didn't feel well. This morning he had a bad headache (probably from an empty stomach). I think today is recovery day, so no school for him. (And I'm hoping he doesn't pass it to me.)
I'll close today with a couple of animal shots. First with Maggie and NOT my old, worn out slipper. (If I take them off for five seconds they disappear, or at least one of them.)
And this is how I usually get to work on the computer -- with roly-poly Pumba perched on my shoulder. Maybe he thinks he's a pirate's parrot or something.
Happy knitting!

Poor little guy, I hate vomiting. Really hope you don't get it!

Love the Pumba pic! My old cat Kobi was a pirate cat like that.

Oy, that sounds like a nasty bug! I hope nobody else in your family catches it!
Yeah, it's the same with my slippers. Slip out for one second, and two pups are fighting over it.

You must have a sore shoulder after having him sitting there! But he sure looks cute, and very interested in what you are doing. :o)

Norwalk virus is going around. Everyone should be washing hands over and over...again. Two people here have had it.
