Crossword Genius

Part of leg, mine, in knees-up (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

shindig

Here is my best explanation:

'knees-up' is the definition.

(seen before)

'part of leg mine' is the subsidiary indication.

'part of leg' becomes 'shin' ('shin' is part of 'leg').

'mine' becomes 'dig' (I've seen this in other clues).

'shin'+'dig'='shindig'

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for shindig that I've seen before include "Commotion", "Noisy disturbance", "Party", "A knees-up", "Hooley", "Large, lively party", "Large and noisy party or quarrel", "Lively party, knees-up", "Rumpus" and "Hidings (anag) - party".)
